Domestic Update
The incentive policy for purchasing four-wheeled electric vehicles including buses will be implemented starting April 1, with incentives in the form of a 10% VAT cut, a 20-year tax holiday for the electric vehicle industry and a super deduction tax of 300% for electric vehicle research. MNCS Comment: Until now, only the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Wuling Air EV have met the vehicle specifications that meet TKDN 40%, but this incentive will accelerate the development of the ecosystem and national electric vehicles.

IHSG Updates
JCI closed on trading Thursday (23/03) to celebrate the holiday with Bali’s Day of Silence. Investors’ concern for the mini banking liquidity crisis in the US had started to subside in line with the stimulus that has become a positive catalyst. In addition, the Fed has raised its benchmark interest rate (FFR) +25 bps to 4.75%-5.00%, which we see as being anticipated by the market. On the other hand, the Rupiah exchange rate closed higher at the level of IDR15,345/USD. We estimate that the JCI will move in the price range of 6,639-6,694 pending the release of M2 Money Supply YoY Feb data. Today's recommendation: BBKP, BRMS, KLBF, MEDC.
