Danish Business Delegation to Indonesia

The Royal Danish Embassy Jakarta organises a Business Delegation on December 5-9, 2011 to explore the vast opportunities on the fast growing Indonesian market.

Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s largest economy and has delivered consistently high annual growth rates exceeding 5% over the past five years. It is predicted that by 2050 Indonesia’s economy will be the 7th largest in the world. This success is underpinned by political stability and government commitment to reforms designed to make Indonesia a competitive destination for foreign businesses.
It is a country with significant potential. It has a population of more than 230 million, and an affluent and inspirational middle class estimated to be at least 35 million – equivalent to a substantial country on its own. The GDP per person moreover already exceeds that of its ASEAN neighbours such as Philippines, and has a GDP per person twice that of Vietnam.
“This delegation invites one or two of your company’s employees to discover this exciting country and to explore the possibility of meeting local partners, incl. local companies, NGOs, academic institutions, research institutions or public institutions,”he invitation says.
“The delegation is sponsored by Danida Business Partnerships and if your company qualifies for support, Danida Business Partnerships can cover up to 75% of your expenses directly related to the visit. Moreover, Danida Business Partnerships will organise briefings, visits, match-making meetings, and similar activities tailored according to the needs of your company.”
