(PresseBox) (Füssen, )The Indometal 2013 special exhibition focused on the synergistic interrelations of foundry technology, casting products, Metallurgy and thermoprocess technology, professionally organized by Opens external link in new windowMesse Düsseldorf, finished its first edition with success.
Two hundred and sixty exhibitors from 26 countries met and estimated 6.200 visitors from more than 20 nations during four days last week. We saw impressive pavilions from Austria, Italy, China, Taiwan and Uk. Leading German suppliers and companies from the US had their own stands or were represented by their agents from Indonesia.The exhibitors were generally satisfied on demand and were able to expand existing relationships as well as establish new contacts. “ We will try to provide a federal participation for German suppliers next time” considered Dr. Würz und Mr. Resch (VDMA) in view of the location and future prospects.
Besides the exhibition, the organizers presented a well attended conference with speakers from industry, economy and associations.
There is no doubt, Indonesia and the whole region can expect growth and stability:
- Next 11 country with a population of 260 Mio. people
- Best investment grade status
- An 6,5% gross domestic product increase since 2011
- Enormous potential in domestic consumption
- Low inflation rate
- 50% of the population is less than 29 years old
- Unemployment rate 6,5%
- Indonesia provides all raw materials on demand
The question is, when to invest or engage in Indonesia when other markets are getting weaker or change. As we have learned that a lot of Japanese Automotive manufacterers are interested in investing in Indonesia, this should also be interesting for others.
Messe Düsseldorf with its team from Singapore did a remarkable job based on their experience of Opens external link in new windowGIFA, THERMPROCESS, MELTEC and NEWCAST and installed an exhibition with future.
The next edition will take place from December 11.- 13.2014, one day less than the first exhibition.
