Ever since 2016, Indonesian government has been participating in ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), aiming to integrate South-east Asia’s diverse economies into a single market and global economy. Indonesia has a strategic position and great opportunity with its statistically biggest population among the ASEAN countries. The government acknowledged that creative industries nowadays are predominantly developed by individuals with creative skills and talents, potentially creating capitals and employments throughout the generations. One advantage of an integrated economic community is that movement of goods, services, investments and professionals will be much easier. These movements will have a great influence in property sector as well.
