Jakarta, April 10, 2017

After a great start of our journey in Singapore, the explorers have just safely arrived in Jakarta, Indonesia yesterday! If you have followed exploreASEAN last year, you might recognise that Indonesia is a new destination for us.

Having the biggest population in the region, Indonesia is also the largest economy of ASEAN. For Swiss companies, the market has a lot to offer regarding business opportunities. The Swiss Business Hub ASEAN in Jakarta, the capital city where our delegation is at the moment, is providing support for interested Swiss enterprises in Indonesia.

Jakarta welcomed us with nice, warm weather. Moreover, we were also welcomed by our friend and participant of the preparatory seminar Fajar Pratama and his colleague of the Institut Teknologi Bandung, Fahd Faikar. Together, they helped to organize the bus rides in Indonesia as well as a countryside tour to Bandung. The explorers expected Indonesia’s traffic to be very chaotic and different from Switzerland based on our insights from the preparatory seminar. On arrival, the traffic took us by surprise as the travel from our airport to the hotel was at ease!

The explorers are full of excitement and looking forward to discover Indonesia for the first time. Learn more on our onsite blog and don`t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and LinkedIn to learn more about exploreASEAN!
