It was the first solo exhibition of Indonesian products in the country.
According to a press statement received from the Indonesian Embassy in Doha on Thursday, November 21, 2019, Indonesian Ambassador to Qatar Muhammad Basri Sidehabi bore witness to the inking of 15 agreements on business transactions worth over US$100 million in terms of commitment for the trading of products, investment, and partnership,
In his remarks, Ambassador Sidehabi was optimistic that the exhibition would facilitate the opening of greater access for the business communities from the two countries to deepen their cooperation in all sectors of the economy and not only in trade exchange but also in drawing more investment, collaboration, and partnership for the benefit of the two brotherly countries.
Drawing reference to the tagline of the expo "Gateway to Indonesian Products," Ambassador Basri highlighted the need for continued action for concrete business and economic cooperation and not solely as a “gate” to the “main building” in the context of economic collaboration.
Supported by the Indonesian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) and its Aceh Province Regional Chapter, as many as 45 companies and two Indonesian cooperatives participated in the expo.
Coinciding with the expo, the Indonesian embassy also organized a Business-to-Business Matchmaking to enable the finalization of some business deals during the three-day exhibition. (Antara)
