The US-ASEAN Business Council (US-ABC) is registering senior-level executives for our Indonesia Business Mission. The Mission consists of bilateral meetings with senior government officials ranging from President Joko Widodo?s Cabinet (Kabinet Indonesia Maju), Executive Office of the President, regulatory-making institutions to the Parliament (DPR).
As several new cabinet members will be taking their posts and President Joko Widodo begins his second term, the US-ABC 2019 Indonesia Business Mission will be a prime opportunity to introduce your company and investment goals, as well as position US-ABC members as a resource to the new government.
US-ABC proposes three overarching themes below to formulate discussion agendas and frame the advocacy recommendations across all sectors, in relation to key elements in President Jokowi's One Century Indonesia (vision on Indonesia 2045):
Reconstructing a more solid and positive B2G engagement
Establishing a positive first impression of the U.S. business community. Growing a mutual symbiosis in the relationship with the GOI, based on the notion of the U.S business community as an investor, resource, and job-creating partner of the administration
Establishing a platform for an efficient, effective, and competitiveregulatory environment
Highlighting policy, laws, and challenges in relation to FDI, trade, human capital, and SME development. Harmonizing standards, regulations, and conformity assessments to increase global and regional competitiveness
