HKTDC brings 170 companies to Jakarta consumer goods show

News this week: The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) recently organised the third edition of its Lifestyle Expo in Jakarta at the Balai Sidang Jakarta Convention Center from 20th to 22nd March 2014. The three-day event showcased consumer products of around 170 exhibiting companies from Hong Kong, and was supported by KADIN – the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

Products exhibited at Lifestyle Expo in Jakarta covered the major categories of consumer electronics, fashion and accessories, gifts and premiums, household goods, baby and children’s products, and health and beauty products. The show also featured a Small-Order Zone which offered small quantity orders to Indonesian buyers.

Raymond Yip, HKTDC’s assistant executive director, commented, “Beyond Indonesia, we expect buyers from Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, among other countries in the region, to participate. Our focus, to be sure, is on Jakarta, and Indonesia. And for very good reason. Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s biggest economy. It also boasts the region’s largest population of middle-class consumers – some 60 million in all.”
