Brunei group to attend trade expo in Jakarta
A TRADE mission from Brunei left for Indonesia last night to attend the Trade Expo Indonesia 2014 as well as explore business opportunities in Jakarta and Yogyakarta.
The delegation will attend the expo in Jakarta from October 6 to 8, followed by a business trip to Yogyakarta from October 9 to 12, according to the trip’s itinerary.
Pg Dato Paduka Hj Jaludin Pg Mohd Limbang, deputy head of the delegation, told The Brunei Times there will be business matching sessions in both Jakarta and Yogyakarta in Central Java.
He said the Bruneian delegation, which consists of over 40 business executives, will look into their own interests and opportunities to cooperate with potential Indonesian counterparts.
“It will depend on the individual companies. If they find common interest in their respective products or services, then they can match,” he said.
“Investment is one factor to be undertaken, (to explore) if there is a compatibility between one another. We just need to explore our opportunities over there (Indonesia),” he said.
The trip is organised by the Indonesia Embassy to expand bilateral trade between Indonesia and Brunei, Rudhito Widago, minister counsellor at the Indonesian Embassy to Brunei, said in a previous interview.
He said businessmen who would be joining the trade mission would have an opportunity to do business matching with Indonesian companies, districts, trade associations as well as meet up with governors and district heads.
Also participating in the trade mission are the Federation of Brunei Malay Entrepreneurs and Women’s Business Council Brunei Darussalam. The expo is organised by the Indonesian trade ministry in cooperation with Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Industry, Agriculture, State Ministry of Cooperatives as well as Small and Medium Enterprises and the Indonesia Investment Coordinating Board.--The Brunei Times
