HONG KONG (7/11/2013) - Currently, the Global Recession has been affecting the entire world economy, characterized by various systemic imbalances. The European sovereign debt crisis, together with US and Chinese slowing growth, continues to provide obstacles to world economic growth. The crisis leads to a transformational decade, with qualitative changes in many dimensions, including political, economic, and social.
Indonesia has taken this transformational decade as a springboard to set a new vision, known as Indonesia 2030. As the biggest economy in South East Asia, Indonesia is a blooming and fast growing economy in Asia, having a GDP size of US$878 billion in 2012. Much less affected by the global financial crisis compared to its neighboring countries, Indonesia’s economy grew by 6.2% in 2012. Indonesia’s economic development policy continues to focus on sustained economic growth.
Today, 7 November 2013, Indonesia holds an integrated promotional program at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong. This program is a part of a series of Indonesian integrated promotional programs in Greater China, organized by the Indonesian Diplomatic Missions in Beijing, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, as well as the Indonesian State-Owned Enterprises in China and Hong Kong.
The theme of this event is “The Indonesian Investment and Business Forum 2013: Next Destination?”, aiming at potential investors and business entities from Hong Kong and surrounding. This event is made up of business seminar, press conference, and networking luncheon. Speakers will come from the government and private sector of Indonesia, who will provide clear exposure of Indonesia’s economic potentials. Focused on the Indonesian economic outlook for the near future, this event is one of our efforts to boost two-way bilateral trade, to enhance investment in Indonesia’s strategic sectors and infrastructure development, to promote cooperation in tourism industry, and to foster people-to-people interaction.
