JAKARTA (Reuters) – Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC is investing 3.5 trillion rupiah ($260.7 million) in a company that operates Indonesia’s biggest cinema chain, marking the latest foreign investment in the country’s burgeoning movie industry.
GIC’s partnership with PT Nusantara Sejahtera Raya (NSR), which runs Cinema 21, Cinema XXI and The Premiere brands in Indonesia, will expand “NSR’s cinema footprint nationally”, according to a joint statement on Monday.
“The investment by GIC reflects our confidence in Indonesia’s long-term growth potential,” GIC said, adding that NSR stands to benefit from “the rapidly expanding consumer class and economic development in Indonesia.”
The movie market, one of dozens of industries that Indonesia liberalized in February, is increasingly whetting the appetite of overseas companies.
Previously, the so-called “negative investment list” shut most of the industry to foreigners.
In August, South Korea’s CJ CGV Co Ltd spent $25.4 million to raise its stake in Indonesia’s second-biggest cinema chain, CGV Blitz, to nearly 23 percent from 14.75 percent.

Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
