Bilateral Meeting With Economissuise

Jakarta, May 31st, 2022

Shinta W. Kamdani as Chair of B20 Indonesia, Arsjad Rasjid as the Chairman of Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN Indonesia), and Indonesian delegations had a meeting with Economissuise, the sister organization of our Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Switzerland.


Arsjad Rasjid shared his vision to have more comprehensive reform on trade, including making it a sustainable trade, committed to net-zero emission and also the inclusion of MSMEs in our global trade. He also shared about the net-zero hub, as one of KADIN key programs in building a greener world.


The representative of Economissuise responded by telling that many Swiss companies specialized in green technology and are looking forward to contribute to Indonesia’s climate efforts. In addition, the textile industry is going to be the most potential growth of the Swiss industry. Despite its massive production, the problem lays in the lack of local markets, which promote bigger export to other countries including to Southeast Asia and the Asia Pacific- seeking potential cooperation with the Indonesian partners.


Meanwhile, Shinta Kamdani shared her works in promoting sustainable development, circular economy and energy transition with all task forces they have. She added that KADIN along with B20 is seriously working on it, not only campaigning or advocating but also providing some tangible projects and outputs.


This meeting was held with the support of PT Astra International Tbk, PT Bayan Resources Tbk, PT Indika Energy Tbk and Sinar Mas.
