UK and Indonesia boost trade

A delegation of companies from the UK is visiting Indonesia 25 to 28 February 2014 to develop partnerships with both state-owned and private companies in Indonesia. The delegation includes companies from many different sectors including:

  • energy

  • oil & gas

  • food & drinks

  • education

  • medical

  • automotive

  • aerospace

These UK companies recognise the size and strength of the Indonesian economy and are very keen to develop long-term, productive and collaborative partnerships with their Indonesian counterparts.

The UK is already one of the leading investors in Indonesia, with hundreds of well known and exciting British brands represented here. This visit will contribute directly to the future growth of both our nations and will play an important role in strengthening our already robust bilateral trading relationship.

The delegation will be led by Richard Graham MP, the British Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy. This will be his fifth visit to Indonesia since his appointment. His programme on this visit will include meeting the new Minister of Trade, Muhammad Lutfi.
