UAE Chambers of Commerce and Industry meet with Indonesian leaders to discuss economic cooperation
Mohammed Thani Murshid Al-Rumaithi, chairman of the Federation of UAE Chambers of Commerce and Industry and Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce, hosted Husin Bagis, Indonesia's ambassador to the UAE, for the meeting at the Chamber’s tower in Abu Dhabi.
“Indonesia is an important trade partner to the UAE and Abu Dhabi," Al-Rumaithi said. “However, trade figures between the two sides do not reflect the available capabilities they possess, especially in the areas which Abu Dhabi focuses on in its plan and economic vision including the industrial sector, tourism, services, healthcare and education.”
Al-Rumaithi highlighted the existing ties between Indonesia and the UAE as well as the particularly strong ties between the country and Abu Dhabi. Bagis acknowledged these ties and called for further Emirati investments in Indonesia. He emphasized Indonesia’s strong tourism, infrastructure and transport sectors and the country’s status as a G-20 nation with regional and international businesses represented within its borders.
