- The Indonesian market is rapidly strengthening its position and is today the world's eighth largest economy. A young urban population and a reform-friendly government make the conditions for Swedish companies to grow in Indonesia favorable. We need to swiftly increase our presence and our commitment to Indonesia to be a part of and contribute to the positive development, says Ylva Berg, CEO of Business Sweden
Indonesia is today a country with 255 million inhabitants spread across 17,500 islands. The increasing purchasing power, the technology-savvy population and the country's massive infrastructure investment create great business opportunities for Swedish companies in a variety of industries. Today, around 80 companies with Swedish affiliates are active in Indonesia - and many more interested in this large and high-interest market.
- There is a great-untapped potential for trade and investment between Sweden and Indonesia. The sustainable and innovative solutions that Sweden can offer are in line with Indonesia's growth efforts, not least in infrastructure, ICT and energy. Both Sweden and Indonesia show a great curiosity for new technology. There is a mutual interest in increasing exchanges in innovation, education and research, says Anders Wickberg, Trade Commissioner, Business Sweden Indonesia.
