German Business Delegation to Indonesia: Cosmetic and Cleansing Material, 26th – 30th November 2018

Together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the German, Cosmetic, Toiletry, Perfumery, and Detergent Association (IKW), the German Indonesian Chamber of Commerce (EKONID) held an event for German delegates from the cosmetics and cleansing materials sector for 5 days in Jakarta, Indonesia

The event’s purpose is to delve into business opportunities with local companies in Indonesia. The German delegates’ schedule consisted of the German-Indonesian Business Forum, site-visits until full-day business meetings for each delegate that have been prepared by the EKONID business development team.

In addition, EKONID also held a networking dinner event attended by the major market players in the cosmetics and cleansing materials field.

The German-Indonesian Business Forum was attended by the Indonesian Cosmetic Companies Association (PERKOSMI), the Indonesian Anti-Aging, Wellness, Aesthetic & Regenerative Medicine Association (PERDAWERI), the Cleaning Service Association (APKLINDO), Indonesian companies and Benscrub Indonesia as an e-commerce platform for cosmetic and body care products. Through this forum the aforementioned companies, both German and Indonesian, have the opportunity to exchange information on the development of technology from their countries and also the opportunity to do some networking. We ended the delegation program with an informative program that included direct visits to the LPPOM MUI (The Assessment Institute for Foods, Drugs And Cosmetics) in Bogor and PT Cedefindo (Cosmetic contract manufacture company) in Bekasi. Through these visits, German delegates have the chance to obtain exclusive information on the issuing of the Halal certificate that is going to be implemented in the year of 2019 and to also directly witness the situation and latest technologies from Indonesian companies in the making of cosmetics. EKONID would like to thank everyone who helped support the organization of our program to its success. We hope that the event was beneficial to everyone who participated
