INDONESIA-BELGIUM VIRTUAL BUSINESS MEETING ON WOOD PRODUCTS AND FURNITURE
Indonesia-Belgium virtual business meeting was held at webinar on Wednesday, 5 August 2020 by Embassy of Republic of Indonesia for Brussel and Forum of Indonesian Forestry Community (FKMPI). This virtual business meeting was moderated by Dr. Efransah (Senior Adviser to the Indonesian Minister of Forestry and Environment). Panelists speaking at the event were Mr. Indroyono Susilo (Chairman of the Communication Forum of Indonesian Forestry Community), Mr. Nadir Oulad Omar (Representative of Belindo/Barabas), Alexander de Groot (Representative of Fedustria), Mr Philippe Delaisse (CEO Ethnicraft Asia). The objective of discussion is that SMEs players have more opportunities to export wood and furniture products and be able to take advantage of opportunities to increase the export level of Indo Belgium wood and furniture products and also to improve both countries strategic cooperation in forest industries through business to business (B2B) dialogue.
According to Mr. Indroyono Susilo, all of the wood and furniture exports from Indonesia to Europe decreased by 20% in the first semester due to the covid-19 pandemic. The current situation shows that Belgium and Indonesia, including their own business communities, are in the transition period moving toward Post Covid-19 new normal. Facing this new normal era, in order to increase our export of wood and furniture products, various challenges that must be faced by exporters of wood and furniture products are are digitalization – shift towards online, better access to market trend and design, required government support to SMEs, required assistance for design and creativity, better education and machinery to train workforce to move towards automation and also strategic partnership with various Belgian companies.
