3-day Indonesian product expo set in DavaoPosted on
DAVAO CITY — The Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Davao City will hold the 2nd Indonesia Manufactured Product Expo (IMPE) 2018 in Abreeza Ayala Mall here from November 23 to 25.
First Secretary Endah R. Yuliarti Farry, the consulate’s Information and Socio-Cultural Affairs chief, said the expo will showcase export products such as construction building materials, housewares, fashion products, food and beverage, health care and beauty products, and agricultural machinery.
Farry said the expo will also include vehicles manufactured in Indonesia, such as the 2018 Mitsubishi Xpander model. The Mitsubishi assembly plant is in Chikara, West Java.
“It will be the first time that car manufacturers will be joining the Expo through a local dealer that import cars from Indonesia,” she said during Wednesday’s Habi at Kape forum here.
Farry said the proximity of Indonesia to the Mindanao remains an advantage of being part of the BIMP-EAGA (Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines – East ASEAN Growth Area) Region.
“We also would like to support the product considering that the model is already being sold in the Philippines by way of promoting it through this expo in order to increase sales in Mindanao area,” she said.
Aside from the exposition, Farry said, business matching sessions between Indonesian traders and local business partners will also be conducted.
The three-day event will also feature arts and cultural performances, and tourism promotion.
Farry said the expo is the sixth series of promotional activities that the Indonesian consulate has organized this year focusing on economic and trade relations through direct trade and people-to-people contact between Indonesia and Mindanao. -Digna D. Banzon/PNA
