"Turkish Export Products Fair - 2011” was held between 16-19th of June in Jakarta Convention Centre / Indonesia. Due to being the first of its kind and the interest it generated, the exhibition allowed the exhibitors to introduce their export products and show their potential to the visiting South Eastern Asian companies especially Indonesian ones.
By achieving a productive outcome last year, expectations were raised over the fact that Turkish Export Products Fairs will increase its attraction over the years. For this reason as Istanbul Exporters Association, we organized the second one, which was held on 02-04 June 2011 in an area of 2,152m2 in Jakarta Convention Centre. Thanks to this organization exhibitors seized the opportunity to penetrate to South Eastern Asian markets and to develop their business relationships with reputable Indonesian and other region companies.
At the opening ceremony of the fair that occupied a gross exhibition space of 1.180 m2 and that hosted 33 Turkish exhibitors as well as 1.500 professional visitors, Mr. Zekeriya Mete (Chairman of the board of Istanbul Cereals Pulses Oil Seeds and Exporters Association) stated to audiences including Mr. Murat Adali (Turkish ambassador in Jakarta), Mr. Dipo Alam (Secretary of the cabinet of ministers) and Mr. Aip Siyarifuddin (President of the Indonesian chamber of commerce) that they are aiming to develop the business relations between these two countries as they already have strong historical and cultural ties. In response to that Mr. Dipo Alam indicated that they love Turkey and the Turks as well as they think this organization will benefit the mutual relationship of these two countries.
An important fact about this organization is that not only it effects Indonesia but also the surrounding countries like Malaysia, Singapore, and The Philippines. When these countries' markets are added up together, a potential market of a population of 500 million is covered. Looking from the Turkish Exporter perspective, a large geographical market can be detected on the horizon which is ready to do business.
Through the signing of Free Trade Agreements, Indonesia and other surrounding countries became an important trade partners for Turkey. Being aware of this opportunity several exhibitors are interested in investing especially in Indonesia where some others are expecting to attract many potential customers not only from agricultural and food sectors but also from machinery and electrical equipments.
Indonesian market not only is new and waiting to be discovered by our country but also by the important exporting countries in the world. Being a member G20 -the 20 most developed countries organization- Indonesia reflects a market with a Muslim population of 250 million. Trade between these two countries stands at 2 billion US Dollars and the objective is that in five years, it will increase to 10 Billion US Dollars, which represents an important market particularly for Turkey.
