Indonesia Now Home to Southeast Asia’s Biggest Movie Studios
Indonesian businessman and movie producer Mike Wiluan has built what are believed to be the biggest film studios in Southeast Asia.
Syamsul Lussa, from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, said Infinite Studio, constructed on 10 hectares of land in Nogsa, Batam, would have a positive impact on the economy.
“Infinite seems to be the biggest film studio in Southeast Asia and it employs many people, therefore this is very good for the economy,” Syamsul was quoted by Detik.com as saying on Monday.
He said the studio employed between 200 to 300 people.
Syamsul said he hoped foreign film companies would be interested in producing their movies in Indonesia.
“If foreign film makers make their movies here, we will benefit from the transfer of knowledge and technology,” he said.
