Indonesia explores more export facilities in Qatar Free Zone

As raised by Qatar-Indonesia Business Council president Farhan al-Sayed, Indonesia is currently eyeing more manufacturing plants in Qatar. This move is to further the country’s potential as the export and re-export hub of Indonesia in the free zones.

During the trade delegation from Indonesia hosted by the Qatar Chamber, Indonesia-Qatar Business Council president Hendra Hartono Turman led the delegation among a wide variety of sectors. These include companies that represent industries from e-commerce, energy, agriculture, tourism, furniture, finance, retail, technology, and healthcare.

“Aside from Indomie, we would be glad to invite other Indonesian companies specialising in the food industry to explore the Qatari market and put up processing plants in the country,” said Turman. This will help advance the Southeast Asian food industry in a variety of ways, and elevate the industry to new heights.

From October 16 to 20, the 34th Trade Expo Indonesia will be held in Jakarta. The wealth of further opportunities and lucrative investments in Qatar will be welcome knowledge to all of the participants there.

“While our strengths are mainly in the food industry, Indonesia’s manufacturing industry is also known for producing many international brands,” he continued. “The council will play a major role in promoting these incentives and the free zones to our companies to enhance the growth of the economic and trade relations between Qatar and Indonesia.”

Fostering this health relationship between the two nations is also due in part to the attractive logistics facilities and incentives that the free zones offer to foreign investors. The Hamad Port also makes it easy for foreign investors to import and export their goods.

“I am encouraging Indonesia to invest in Qatar’s trading and free zones; and this is an opportunity for them to become one of the leading countries to pour foreign direct investments into Qatar. This will also help them cater to both Qatar and whole Middle East region,” said Al-Sayed. “With Hamad Port and the free zones, Indonesian companies could also export their products to Qatar, store them here, and then re-export them to other international or regional destinations.”
