The government of Indonesia then officiated Kadin Indonesia as the official partner of the government through a Presidential Decree No.49/1973.
Furthermore, on September 21, 2022, the revised Articles of Association and Bylaws of Kadin Indonesia were ratified as Presidential Decree No. 18/2022, which explicitly confirms that there is only one Kadin in Indonesia, which acts as the umbrella organization for business in Indonesia.
Therefore, based on constitutional principles, Article 33 of the 1945 Constitution and its historical foundation, the existence of Kadin Indonesia is crucial to fill in the role as a strategic partner of the government to advance a nationally competitive economy.
Kadin Indonesia was established on September 24, 1968, by all of the Provincial Kadin in Indonesia. The initiative to gather and establish a united Kadin Indonesia was pioneered by Kadin DKI Jakarta.
The position of Kadin Indonesia was also established through the Indonesian Entrepreneurial Assembly, which refers to Law No. 1/1987 regarding Kadin Indonesia on September 24, 1987.
