Expo to showcase Indonesian products

THE Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia in Davao City will stage the 1st Indonesian Manufactured Products Expo on July 22-24 to introduce Indonesian products to the local market.

Consul General of Indonesia Berlian Napitupulu said last week in a press conference at Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia in Ecoland that the three-day fair event, which would be joined by 20 Indonesian companies, will be held at the Indonesian Convention Center in Juna Subdivision.

The event, Napitupulu said, also includes business-to-business meetings, where they invited 70 Philippine-based companies and local government units.

“This expo will showcase Indonesia’s export quality manufactured products to be marketed in the Philippines, such as automotive spare parts, building materials (tiles), tractor, cosmetics, herbal supplements, pulp and paper, automotive and stationary battery, and many others,” said the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in a statement.

Data from the Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia showed that among the exhibitors include Pt. Jati Unggul Abadi, Pt. Kyoda Mas Mulia, Pt. Abenk Muffler, Pt. Bintang Matrix, Pt. Laksana Teknik, Pt. Cipta Kreasi Perrada, Pt. Kino Indonesia TBK/Kino Consumer Philippines Inc., Pt. Seribu Pulau Indonesia, Pt. Indo Lintas Utama, Pt. Quick Tractor and TP. APP Indonesia.

The list also includes Selatan Jadi Jaya, Ennya Leather, Bali Chocolate and Candy and Indonesia Batik.

Napitupulu said they hope that there will be more products from their country that would be sold locally. In Mindanao, he said they found that there are 68 Indonesian products but 18 are imported from other countries.

“The expo is also part of our efforts to increase awareness on the new sea connectivity,” Napitupulu said.
