A three-day fair titled Indonesia Fair 2019 will begin at International Convention City Bashundhara in Dhaka on Thursday which is expected to highlight Indonesian products, services and tourism sector cooperation between the two countries.
Commerce minister Tipu Munshi will attend the inaugural ceremony of the fair, to be organised by the embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, as the chief guest.
The opening ceremony would be followed by the handover of Indonesia’s buses procured by Bangladesh, said an official.
More than 30 companies from Indonesia will participate in the trade fair to showcase Indonesian products, ranging from traditional Indonesian batik, jewellery, fashion, and handicrafts, to services, food and beverages, automotive, aviation, banking, pharmaceutical, building material, military equipment, and tourism destinations.
On the sidelines of the fair, Indonesia-Bangladesh Business and Investment Forum will be held on April 26 with panellists from Bangladesh Economic Zones Authority, Bangladesh Investment Development Authority and Indonesian Investment Board.
