Indonesia Infrastructure Week – An open door to a major market

Indonesia has the largest economy in southeast Asia and it’s growing fast, fuelled by a huge array of natural resources and a burgeoning population. Already the 27th largest exporter globally and climbing the rankings steadily the country is a significant market for the construction industry. Homes, commercial property, factories and infrastructure are all in demand and there are enormous opportunities for contractors. While demand for infrastructure makes up a huge part of the sector’s growth, however, it can be difficult to get established; the market is highly integrated and largely government controlled. The best way to gain entry is via Indonesia Infrastructure Week 2015.
Running in Jakarta in the first week of November, Indonesia Infrastructure Week is a series of conferences that aim to connect interested contractors with industry experts, potential clients and government figures. It’s an outstanding chance to get up to date on how business is done in Indonesia, find out what projects are in the pipeline and start making the contacts that can help you get your share of the work. This year there will be four separate events taking place, and they all have a lot to offer.
Konstruksi Indonesia focuses on the country’s thriving construction market and is sponsored by the Ministry of Public Works and Housing. As well as extensive displays of products and materials you’ll be able to take part in seminars, workshops and open discussions that will leave you well placed to develop a strategy for securing Indonesian contracts.
IIICE 15 aims to help contractors form partnerships with the Indonesian government and take on major projects. It’s the largest infrastructure event in the region and billions of dollars in contracts will be discussed. Indonesia is investing heavily in everything from roads to hydroelectric power and the energy industry, so there are some opportunities here you really don’t want to miss.
Airports & Aviation Indonesia is the place to be if you’re keen to help build the air transport infrastructure the country needs. The network of airports is expanding fast and there’s a lot of building needed.
Finally the Connect Expo Comm Indonesia looks at telecommunications, another fast-expanding sector. Indonesia’s service economy is already large and is set to expand powerfully over the next few years; this is your chance to supply the infrastructure it needs.
Indonesia Infrastructure Week will be running at the Jakarta Conference Center from 4-6 November, and it’s a key event for anyone with plans in southeast Asia. The venue is conveniently located close to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and offers a great choice of local hotels and amenities. It’s also within easy reach of downtown Jakarta. Entry is free and you can register through the event website.
