Mr. Mika Lintilä, Minister of Economic Affairs, will visit Indonesia with a Team Finland business delegation on 20-25 May 2022.
In July 2021 the government of Indonesia submitted an updated national climate commitment to the United Nations. Indonesia also submitted its first long-term strategy, which indicates the country plans to peak GHG emissions in 2030 and could reach net-zero GHG emissions by 2060 or sooner. Most of the actions are targeted in the areas of energy, transport, and forestry.
Indonesia needs to reduce its GHG emissions throughout the society. The critical sectors in Indonesia’s roadmap are energy infrastructure, industrial production as well as transportation sectors. Target is to challenge Indonesia to focus on more holistic and systemic solutions which include energy, ICT and city solutions. These three sectors are specifically the three spearheads for this Team Finland visit.
The goal of this visit is to foster relations between the two countries, as well as offer an excellent opportunity for Finnish companies in energy, ICT and smart city related industries to establish high-level business connections with companies in Indonesia.
Indonesia has conducted a long-term climate strategy and committed to carbon neutrality by 2060. It is a big change from coal powered energy generation towards renewable energy. The transform sets demands to the electricity grid and challenges to see waste as a source of energy too. Indonesia is committed to reduce emissions at transport sector and is a huge market for electric transport.
A renewed MoU between Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia and Ministry of Employment and Economy of Finland will be officially signed during the visit. The MoU enables deeper collaboration in the fields of sustainable, clean and renewable energy and energy efficiency between Finland and Indonesia.
Indonesia’s climate strategy mentions emissions from industry as one of the actions to be taken. Smart, IoT driven manufacturing is bringing efficiency to the processes and therefore cuts emissions. Indonesia is also a rapidly digitizable country and is starting to implement 5G networks in the country.
There are several reasons why Jakarta is no longer in favor to be the capital of Indonesia. Therefore, a plan is to build a new city in Borneo as a capital and showroom of Indonesian development. The principles of the city are sustainability, unity and connectivity in a Smart City. Business Finland will be following the development closely and will strongly support Finnish companies in their participation of in this 32 Bn USD project. At the moment we are driving Finnish participation in themes like data driven society, connectivity and smart built environment. Also building up a common approach in energy, waste management and several other sectors.
Indonesia is gaining importance in the South East Asia region and in the global perspective too. The visit is targeting to the value chain of several rapidly developing industries in Indonesia from high-level governmental lobbying to business contacts. If you are representing a Finnish company already in Indonesia or planning to enter the market, this delegation visit is a good opportunity to add contacts and insight to your further decision making.
The delegation program is built especially for companies in the fields of smart energy, waste treatment, built environment, connectivity, digitalization and smart city solutions.
We are closely following the Covid-19 travel restrictions and any possible changes related to them. Kindly note that participants are required to show a negative test result and proof of vaccination to be able to attend the visit program.
