The mission took 301 delegates to three different Indonesian cities: Jakarta, Bogor and Bandung.
In total 127 companies participated in the economic mission. They actively participated in B2B’s, high-level conferences, seminars, official meetings, networking opportunities and cultural events that the five main organizers of the mission have lined up for them, namely, the three regional trade promoting agencies (FIT, AWEX and BI&E), the Belgian Foreign Trade Agency and the Federal Public Service Foreign Affairs.
EIBN successfully supported mainly the FIT Agency in Jakarta in setting up meetings with Indonesian partners for several of the participating Belgian companies in the mission, from 14 to 16 of March.
