TEI aims to promote quality national products produced in Indonesia to the global market, develop business and investment networks, and present a display of Indonesia’s best and superior products. “For that, we must be able to improve the quality of the implementation of TEl so that it is better than before,” he continued.
Arlinda continued, TEI is also the largest business to business (B2B) meeting in Indonesia as well as a one stop business for buyers looking for high quality and competitive Indonesian products.
Carrying the theme ‘Moving Forward to Serve the World’, TEI 2019 is an opportunity for business people who want to find potential markets for national exports and foreign investors who are interested in developing their businesses in Indonesia.
TEl 2019 will showcase Indonesian products and services in the zones of potential and national superior products, including culinary products of the archipelago, superior local products, premium and creative products, manufacturing services and products, food and beverage products, as well as furniture and home decoration products. Each hall will be equipped with a buyer service area that is ready to provide services to buyers while they are at the exhibition site.
“We are optimistic that the 2019 TEI results will contribute significantly to Indonesia’s export performance, both short and long term,” continued Arlinda.
TEI 2018 posted transactions of USD 8.49 billion, up more than five times the target value of TEI 2018 transactions valued at USD 1.5 billion. TEI 2018 also recorded a total of 33,333 exhibition visitors from 132 countries.
