Webinar: Technical Barriers to Trade in Indonesia
03. September 2019, Webinar
BMWi establishes dialogue on standards, certificates and market surveillance
Deviating standards, particular certification procedures or discretionary product safety controls restrict opportunities for companies to integrate into global value chains. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) engages with important trade partners such as Brazil, China, India and Mexico to harmonise technical trade regulation.
With a population of more than 264 million people and steady annual GDP growth rates above 5%, Indonesia represents one of the most interesting target markets for German companies. Yet, despite efforts for closer regional and global integration, technical market access barriers remain.
BMWi aims to lower these barriers through a structured and regular dialogue with the Indonesian government. For direct engagement of German associations and businesses, BMWi has tasked the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH with coordination and support to the dialogue.
In this webinar, GIZ will inform about the current state of alignment and opportunities for companies to address challenges and questions towards both governments. The speakers are Johannes Braun, Head of the Global Project Quality Infrastructure, and Torge Wolters, responsible for the cooperation of the project with Indonesia.
As a participant you will have the opportunity to take part in the discussion and ask questions to the two speakers directly. OAV is already supporting this important project in China and India and does welcome the opportunity to start the dialogue with Indonesia, ASEAN’s biggest economy. The webinar is also supported by the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (SGC).
