By Kanupriya Kapoor and Jonathan Thatcher JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's new president, Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, promised to make life simpler for investors by beefing up the country's threadbare infrastructure, untangling near-impenetrable regulations and sacking his ministers if they aren't up to the job. The Elections Commission announced on Tuesday that the Jakarta governor had won the hard-fought July 9 election by just over six percentage points, although his rival, Prabowo Subianto, plans to challenge the result in Constitutional Court. A lack of roads, ports, electricity and other basic services, along with corrupt bureaucracies, is beginning to disenchant foreign investors, essential for the resource-based economy to grow. So if we can give solutions for getting business permits, I'm sure that we can improve the infrastructure faster." Jokowi is the first businessman to become president of Indonesia, which took all six of its previous leaders from a political elite.

By Randy Fabi and Wilda Asmarini JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's new president Joko "Jokowi" Widodo said he wants to sit down with mining companies and other parties in a bid to resolve a row over mining policies that has halted $500 million of metal exports a month in Southeast Asia's biggest economy. The comment by the former Jakarta governor, who has a reputation for tackling entrenched interests, appeared to be a positive sign after an increasingly bitter dispute between the mining sector and the outgoing government. Until this year, Indonesia was the world's top exporter of nickel ore and a major supplier of copper, iron ore and bauxite. I want to know the details," Jokowi said in an interview at his residence in Jakarta on Saturday, before he was declared winner of the presidential election on Tuesday.
