German-Indonesian Medical Devices Trade Mission


From February 19 to 23, 2024, AHK Indonesien/EKONID organized a German Trade Mission to Indonesia, focusing on “Market Exploration for German Companies in the Field of Production Technology and Components for Medical Technology”.

Done in collaboration with the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) and Association of German Mechanical and Plant Engineering (VDMA), the mission aimed to delve into the business prospects of the medical technology sector between Germany and Indonesia. The agenda encompassed business conferences, individual B2B meetings, company visits, and a pitching event, all geared towards fostering partnerships and understanding the Indonesian market dynamics. 

Ms. Marianne Friese, CEO of the Berlin- and China-based Marianne Friese Consulting, who was among the 20 representatives that took part in the roundtable discussion, said she looked forward to the growth of the Indonesian medical devices industry. 

“I’m optimistic to see how rapid Indonesia is advancing to be an even more appealing business partner for Germany,” said Ms. Friese. 

Mr. Erwin Hermanto, Chairman 1 of ASPAKI, who attended the pitching event on February 21, highlighted the importance of such events in facilitating dialogue between foreign and domestic stakeholders. He also advocated more targeted discussions to enhance mutual understanding of investment opportunities.  

“I think events like this should be hosted more frequently to address potential gaps in understanding regulatory developments and investment relations between foreign and Indonesia’s stakeholders. Focus group discussions are also possible to foster further engagement, in collaboration with EKONID,” Mr. Hermanto said. 

EKONID would like to thank all the participants who attended this German Trade Mission, as well as our supporting partners.
