JAKARTA (TheInsiderStories) – The House of Representative is currently drafting a new bill on Entrepreneurship, aiming at creating more entrepreneurs in the country.

Under the new bill, the state is obliged to facilitate new entrepreneurs in setting up their business, including in obtaining permit, said deputy head for Special Committee on the Bill of National Entrepreneurs Matri Agoeng on Thursday (01/02). The assistance to the entrepreneurs will be done through ‘online’, he said.

Ideally, in a country five percent of its population are entrepreneurs. However, in Indonesia, only 1.6 per cent of the population are entrepreneurs.
