Indonesia`s economic growth to boost Spain`s investment

Indonesian ambassador to Spain Adiyatwidi Adiwoso Asmady said the promising Indonesian economic growth is expected to boost Spain`s investment in Indonesia, which is still rare.

The Indonesian government believed the economy will grow by 6 to 6.2 percent this year and expected to reach 6.9 percent next year, he said at a function of promoting Indonesian culture and products at the Indonesian embassy along with PT Jarum Kudus and PT Garuda Indonesia at Hotel Art, Barcelona, Tuesday night.

He said despite the world crisis, Indonesia`s economy continued growing by 5.7 percent, which is expected to increase this year.

This is the right time for Spain to make an investment in Indonesia, because in the next five years the Indonesian government will focus on building infrastructure projects in the transportation sector, energy supply, mining and tourism.

Last year, Indonesia opened an Indonesian trade promotion center in Barcelona headed by Abu Umar in charge of technical matters of the Indonesian mission abroad providing services to facilitate business partners in boosting two-way trade.

The ambassador said further that the crisis which hit Greece, Portugal and also Spain prompted Indonesia to seek new breakthroughs especially in facing Spain which is having difficulties due to the crisis which hit several countries in Europe.

In the meantime, the promotion of Indonesian culture and products like clove flavored cigarettes of PT Jarum Kudus will be held in four cities in Spain, namely Barcelona, Seville, Vigo and Coruna, which in every invitation will have a lucky draw for an air ticket from Garuda which will open a flight route to Europe starting in June this year.

Each of the cities will have an opportunity in the lucky draw to come to the bazaar at the Indonesian embassy in Madrid on June 20 and of the four winners of the lucky draw, only one will be given a Garuda flight ticket for an Amsterdam-Indonesia return trip.

The cultural promotion with dances by Endang Kadek, a Balinese dancer living in Madrid, with her Panyembrama dance, welcome dance, and Cendrawasih dance from Bali, made a deep impression on the 100 guests.

Indonesian kretek cigarettes were also further introduced as a product of PT Jarum Kudus which had entered the market in Spain for quite a long time.
