Dia memperkirakan kebutuhan total investasi komoditas substitusi impor sebesar Rp68,08 triliun atau Rp13,62 triliun per tahun. Investasi ini memberikan penciptaan total kesempatan kerja sebesar 1,87 juta orang, atau 0,37 juta orang per tahun, serta potensi penghematan devisa Rp83,76 triliun selama lima tahun.
