Taipei, Oct. 19 (CNA) Indonesia will work to strengthen trade with Taiwan by actively promoting exports of Indonesian goods and forging partnerships in the field of technology transfers, according to Budi Santoso, head of the Indonesian Economic and Trade Office (IETO) to Taipei.

Budi, the new de facto Indonesian envoy to Taiwan, made the comment in a letter to CNA Sunday, just days after officially assuming office on Oct. 13. He arrived in Taiwan Sept. 19, where he underwent quarantine for three weeks.

"Of course, we will intensely promote Indonesian products in Taiwan by facilitating exhibitions and business matching," Budi said.

With international travel severely impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, IETO hosted a virtual trade show in July to bring together Indonesian food and beverage companies and Taiwanese buyers.    [FULL  STORY]
