JAKARTA — Over 100 businesses from Việt Nam and Indonesia on Thursday met at a seminar in Jakarta, Indonesia to seek co-operation in the fields of trade, industry and investment.
The seminar was jointly organised by the Embassy of Việt Nam in Indonesia and the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade, and the Indonesian Food and Beverage Association (GAPMMI).
Ambassador to Indonesia Phạm Vinh Quang underlined that Việt Nam and Indonesia have nurtured a long-standing relationship and reaped outstanding results in economic and trade co-operation in recent years.
“However, he pointed out that the results have yet to match potential of both sides,” Quang said.
The diplomat emphasised the role of the business communities of Việt Nam and Indonesia in lifting bilateral trade revenue to US$10 billion in 2020.
Ari Satria, director of the Export Product Development under Indonesia’s Directorate General of National Export Development, noted that firms should work to enhance trade and expand markets, thereby creating a solid foundation for the development of the countries’ business community and the Indonesia-Việt Nam economic and trade co-operation in general.
GAPMMI Chairman Adhi S. Lukman said the seminar offers a chance for businesses of Indonesia and Việt Nam to meet and discuss co-operation opportunities.
He voiced his hope that similar events will be arranged in a bid to facilitate firms to co-operate and expand markets.
Within the framework of the seminar, businesses were updated on demand and policies of the two countries. Vietnamese products were also introduced at the event to bolster exports to the Indonesian market. — VNS
