FIFTEEN Malaysian companies will be participating in Megabuild Indonesia 2022 at the Jakarta Convention Centre from June 16 to June 19, 2022.
There they can showcase their capabilities in the construction and building materials sector, particularly in areas such as architecture, engineering, project management and construction services, aviation lighting, glass coating, and water tanks.
Malaysian External Trade Development Corp (Matrade) Construction and Business Services section director Idzham Abdul Hamid said among the products and services that will be promoted at Megabuild 2022 include architectural design, engineering, project management and construction services, aviation lighting, glass coating and water tanks.
“In addition, green and sustainable products such as solar power and EV charger solutions will also be showcased at the Malaysian Pavilion.”
“The main objectives of the participation are to promote Malaysian products and services, to explore business opportunities, as well as to collaborate with potential strategic Indonesian partners in the construction-related projects,” he said in a statement today.
Matrade will also be coordinating the participation of Malaysian companies in other international trade fairs, including Acetech Mumbai (Nov 10-13) and The Big 5 Dubai (Dec 5-8).
As Indonesia plans to relocate its capital city from Jakarta to East Kalimantan Province, Matrade predicted that it will attract foreign investment from various industries including construction, infrastructure, transportation and telecommunication.
The new capital, which will be named Nusantara, will be built on a 632,850-acre (256,105ha) plot of land, almost four times the size of Jakarta.
Due to that, East Kalimantan is predicted to see a 47.7% growth in real investment.
“Malaysian companies interested in exploring business opportunities in Nusantara should enhance their presence in the country and are encouraged to explore business opportunities in Nusantara through the Matrade network.
“Some of the potential projects readily available include the Rebana project in West Java that can serve as a catalyst for Malaysian companies to have a bigger presence in Indonesia, especially in the new capital city in Kalimantan Timur,” Idzham added.
