Trade Expo Indonesia targets to boost


exports to non-traditional markets

The Trade Ministry has announced that its annual trade exhibition, Trade Expo Indonesia (TEI),
will be held for the 34th time from Oct. 16-20 at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE) in
Serpong, Banten, with a view to expanding exports to nontraditional markets.

The TEI is Indonesia's largest business-to-business exhibition for local producers to attract
foreign buyers.

Last year, the TEI booked a record transactions value of US$8.49 billion in trade-related
investment and sales of goods and services, more than five times the 2017 figure of $1.4 billion.

Trade Ministry Export Development Director General Arlinda said TEI 2019 would reaffirm
Indonesia's export market diversification, including to Latin American and Caribbean countries,
while maintaining access to traditional markets like the United States and China.

"Last year's visitors were mainly from nontraditional [markets] like those in Africa, the Middle
East and Central Asia, whereas the biggest [goods and services] transactions came from buyers
in Saudi Arabia, India and Egypt," Arlinda said during the TEI 2019 press conference on
Monday. "This is in accordance with the government's target of diversifying toward
nontraditional markets."

Arlinda said the ministry had not set any targets for transactions and visitor numbers this year,
but she expressed confidence that it would be better than last year's figures.
The secretary of the Foreign Ministry’s Directorate General for America and Europe, Ratu Silvy
Gayatri, said South American countries alone had absorbed $1.18 billion of Indonesia's exports
last year, a number she said could be greatly improved.

"We will support the export of strategic products that have a high technology content, such as
trains, ships, arms and heavy machinery," Silvy said at the same occasion. (bbn)
