The sixth Indonesia-Taiwan Industrial Collaboration Forum concluded Oct. 30 in the Southeast Asian country’s city of Bogor, reflecting commitment of both sides to expanding bilateral economic and trade ties.
According to the Ministry of Economic Affairs, this was the first in-person edition of the annual forum since the outbreak of COVID-19 and was attended by around 220 academics, business leaders, experts and officials from the two countries. It was co-organized by Taipei City-based Chinese National Federation of Industries and Jakarta-based Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
During the forum, keynote speakers discussed the latest developments toward attaining net-zero emissions, the ministry said. Representatives also explored ways to reach the goal while expanding two-way cooperation in the food, Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and shipbuilding sectors, with Taiwan’s digital New Southbound Policy as the foundation, the ministry said.
During his opening remarks, Vice MOEA Minister Lin Chuan-neng praised the success of the platform in channeling resources and promoting exchanges between Taiwan and Indonesia. He expects more encouraging development when the event takes place in Taiwan next year.
According to the MOEA, business and industry associations from the two countries additionally concluded four memorandums of understanding on cooperation in unmanned aerial vehicle services and provision of shipbuilding professionals, as well as meat and produce processing.
A key plank in the government’s national development strategy, the NSP seeks to reinforce Taiwan’s agricultural, business, cultural, education, tourism and trade ties with the 10 ASEAN member states, six South Asian countries, Australia and New Zealand. (SFC-E)
