Trade Expo Indonesia in its 33rd year – attracts thousands of visitors from around 100 countries, so Territory representatives will benefit from access to a huge audience.
While in Jakarta Ms Worden will also attend several meetings, including with the Indonesian Minister for Trade, the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and the Chairman of the Indonesian Investment Board (BKPM).
As noted by Assistant Minister for Small Business, Multicultural Affairs and the Arafura Games, Kate Worden:
The Territory Labor Government is creating jobs for Territorians, and having a strong team represent the Territory at the Trade Expo Indonesia will help maximise exposure and opportunities for Territory businesses.
Strengthening relationships and business ties with Indonesia, one of our largest trading partners, and other Asian countries, is essential to improving access for Territory businesses to the vast markets to our north.
The Territory has much to offer when it comes to investment and exports, and attending this expo will help local businesses share our very best.
