Thinking of Exporting to Indonesia? Here’s Why You Should…

In 2015, the State of Ohio exported $274.23 million dollars of product to Indonesia. That represented a 45.9% increase in exports from 2014. Oil Seeds/Grains, Aircraft; Spacecraft/parts, Industrial Machinery/Computers and Food Industry Residues/Animal Feed Prep represented the top 5 export categories for our State.

Why Indonesia? Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s largest economy with a GDP of $888 billion. It is a thriving democracy with significant regional autonomy. Located on one of the world’s major trade routes, Indonesia’s economy comprises nearly half of ASEAN output. Consumer‐related market opportunities in retail, health, education, telecom and the financial sector have boomed over the past few years. More than 60 million low income Indonesian workers are expected to join the middle class in the coming decade, significantly increasing consumer demand.

On September 1st, the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Chicago, in partnership with Columbus 2020, will present the Indonesia-Ohio Business Forum in Columbus. The forum will provide Ohio businesses an opportunity to gather ideas and insight on the economic potentials, opportunities, and challenges of trading with and investing in Indonesia from businesses with experience in Indonesia and Indonesian government representatives.
