The Indonesian Association of Indigenous Entrepreneurs (HIPPI) will organize an Asian Corporate Giant 2013 conference here on Nov. 18 to forge cooperation with their foreign counterparts.

“This conference will serve as a means to team up with foreign partners,”  HIPPI chairperson Suryani S. Motik said on Wednesday.

She noted that the representatives of more than 100 large Asian companies will attend the conference, which will be jointly organized with the Singapore-based DP Information Group.

“We know that Indonesia is currently one of the (main) investment destinations thanks to its huge market and abundant resources.  Therefore, the conference will be useful.  The event will not merely serve as a gathering but will assist business matching as well,” she remarked.

The conference will become an introductory meeting for Asian businessmen, and there will be follow-up meetings among the individual participants, she explained.

Randy Tedjokusumo, chairman of the event’s organizing committee, revealed that representatives of more than 100 companies from Singapore, the United States, China, Malaysia, South Korea, India, Bangladesh, Germany, and Hong Kong will attend the conference.

The domestic companies sending representatives to the conference include herbal medicine manufacturer Sido Muncul, state pharmaceutical companies such as Indofarma, and state-owned banks such as BNI.

DP Information Group Managing Director Chen Yew Nah said the meeting is also aimed at uniting the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, HPPI and the DP Information Group to encourage the public to start and develop their own businesses.

“The activity is also designed to make optimum use of market opportunities.  Many businesses cannot grow due to a lack of viable information,” he added.
