The US-ASEAN Business Council (US-ABC) is registering senior-level executives for the 2020 Indonesia Business Mission. The Mission consists of virtual meetings with senior government officials ranging from President Joko Widodo's (Jokowi) Cabinet, regulatory-making institutions, to Parliament (DPR).
In conjunction with the first anniversary of Indonesia Maju Cabinet, this mission will provide you with unique opportunities to meet with the Indonesian Government to learn about the new priorities in the second administrative year and post-COVID-19 era. Moreover, the mission will offer resources and partnership, identify new opportunities to expand trade and investment, as well as introduce your company's latest development in Indonesia.
In doing so, US-ABC proposes theme: "Supporting the Acceleration of Indonesia's Post-COVID-19 Economic Recovery," with three overarching key messages below to formulate discussion and frame the advocacy initiatives, in line with the Government's key priorities as outlined in President Jokowi's Independence Day State of the Union Address:
Reaffirming US-ABC members' commitment to partnering with the Indonesian Government to achieve President Jokowi's goals
Continue to build a constructive relationship between the Indonesian Government and the U.S. business community, based on the notion that the U.S business community is an investor, resource, and job creating partner of the Government during and post the COVID-19 pandemic.
Establishing a platform for a more efficient, effective, and competitiveregulatory environment
Support President Jokowi's agenda to undertake fundamental regulatory and bureaucratic reform, in order to help build a favorable environment for quality job creation, human rights, and more importantly, to advance food supply chain and quality healthcare for the digital era.
Harnessing innovation and technology to support economic revival post-COVID-19
