Polish govt, entrepreneurs to strengthen partnership with RI

Government officials and entrepreneurs from Poland have expressed an interest in boosting business relationships and investment in Indonesia, a Polish government official says.

Deputy Minister of Economy for the Republic of Poland Grazyna Henclewska said her country saw Indonesia as an attractive country in the Southeast Asian region to do business with.

“Poland has an expertise in the fields of maritime — especially shipyards — food and agribusiness, medical as well as mining and its supporting businesses,” Henclewska said in her speech on Thursday during a visit to Indonesia.

As of 2014, total trade value between Indonesia and Poland reached US$539.7 million — $395.9 million coming from Indonesia’s exports to Poland and $143.8 million coming from Poland’s exports to Indonesia — with trade value surplus reaching $252.2 million, according to Trade Ministry data.

Indonesia exports electronics, musical instruments and TV sets in addition to rubber products, soap and other consumer goods. Meanwhile, Poland exports meat and dairy products to Indonesia along with $20.4 million worth of engineering equipment.

In the field of foreign direct investment, Poland stood at number 34 on the list of investors as of last year, with a total of five projects worth $4.4 million.

Industry Minister Saleh Husin said the Indonesian government would welcome foreign investors who wanted to develop businesses in Indonesia, especially in the industry sector, while also opening business relationship opportunities between entrepreneurs in both countries.

“I really expect that the executives of Indonesian and Polish companies could benefit from a forum in which they could exchange information about each other’s potentials and consider possibilities of opening business relationships in the fields of trade and investment,” Saleh said.

Saleh said the Indonesian government was currently focusing on inviting foreign investors to enter prioritized sectors, such as infrastructure, especially in the fields of electricity, ports and industrial areas.

In addition, Saleh said the government was developing industrial estates outside Java to increase large and small industries as well as competitiveness and productivity.

“We really hope that Polish companies can seek opportunities to invest in industrial estates currently under construction to support the growing domestic market,” Saleh added.

Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) chairman Suryo Bambang Sulisto said Poland had various technological expertise that could be shared with Indonesia, especially in the fields of mining, ship building, food processing and electricity.

“We want to push growth in those sectors, but for the field of investment, we should discuss that in depth first,” Suryo said.

Separately, Jaroslaw Staluszka, an executive with Polish shipyard company Nauta S.A., said the firm was open to different types of cooperation with Indonesian companies involved in the same sector as Poland offered high quality vessel manufacturing at affordable prices.

According to Staluszka, Indonesian shipping companies had the potential to grow, even though he said “they need some transfer of technology”.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
