Format Workshop
Description With production costs rising across Asia, Indonesia – a country with a substantial workforce and rich natural resources – has emerged as a prime manufacturing destination. The success of its government in upgrading the country’s infrastructure and boosting its efficiency, together with its increasingly-affluent domestic market, have seen Indonesia compete increasingly effectively with fellow members of the ASEAN Economic Community. Given the country’s huge market and investment potential, suitably innovative Hong Kong entrepreneurs would be well-advised to consider the emerging opportunities. Hong Kong businesses could also look to leverage on the advantages bestowed upon them by the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area (CAFTA) and the recently-signed Hong Kong and ASEAN Free Trade Agreement when it comes to exploring the opportunities offered by Indonesia.
