Recently 16 ACT companies and education providers returned from a Trade Mission to Jakarta, Indonesia.
Indonesia is geographically close to Australia and provides a wealth of opportunities. Importantly there is a large and growing consumer middle class. In the Asia Pacific the middle class is currently 525M people, and this is forecast to grow to 3228M by the year 2030.
Adam Smith, from Data pod said “The trade mission schedule met our commercial needs. In Jakarta there was a range of first class speakers from a variety of organisations that gave us a wealth of insightful data and opinion on the local market. For a relative newbie to Indonesia it was a great and comprehensive introduction. I am left in no doubt as to the potential for Australian-Indonesian trade to grow substantially if the right efforts are made now.
“On this Trade Mission in addition to the four education providers: ACU, ANU, UC and CIT,there was also 12 innovative knowledge intensive companies with world class offerings. I take this opportunity to showcase these 12 companies:
