President Joko Widodo is irked by Indonesia’s huge dependence on imports for drugs, pharmaceutical raw materials, and medical equipment. He wants to not just reduce the imports, but stop them altogether.

"Speaking about health equipment, drugs and raw materials for medicines, we have to stop importing these items. We must produce them ourselves in our [own] country," the President said on 27 Dec. 2021 at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Bali International Hospital in Denpasar.
