BritCham Business Snapshots
#16 November 2020
A Personal Message From Executive Director (Monday, Nov 16th)
We hear that some businesses are cruising into the final straights of this extraordinary year. But BritCham is cranking everything up for a final sprint. With so much happening, I wanted to be certain that our members and stakeholders don’t miss out on some unique opportunities and insightful business intelligence.
Last week we launched the outcomes of the BritCham International Confidence Index 2020 to all respondents, British and EU Ambassadors, and KADIN.

On Friday, our Human Capital & Education Centre launched a vid clip competition and alumni can win a 2-night stay at the Hard Rock Bali.

Not alumni? Maybe you work with some who studies in the UK?
Visit our Instagram and Facebook page for more details.
Tomorrow, the Professional Women’s Group honours and celebrates the international awards of ALL THREE of BritCham’s nominations. Ibu Inke Maris, Prita Kemal Gani and Shinta Kamdani come together as one amazing PWG panel.

On Nov 26th, It’s great to see our retired Chair, Ainsley Mann, leading the Climate Change Member Focus with the same verve he led our Chamber for three years. Again, he brings together two of the most globally recognized executives to share insights on the role of technology in advancing the objectives of conservation.

Discussing content so critical, we have decided this should be an OPEN webinar. Non members welcome with booking priorities for members.

It is also great to see our two recently retired Vice Chairs coming together and offering the BritCham stakeholder network sound advice on tackling the Indonesian market.
This podcast with Harun Reksodiputro, Partner at Ginting & Reksodiputro in association with Allen & Overy and David Burke, Partner/Founder at Wellington Capital Advisory is highly recommended for top level market access intelligence.

And there is still more in the mix - from talent acquisition, development and retention to smart city challenges and opportunities, it is all aimed at helping our business community to finish on a high and be well prepared for the challenges of 2021. Watch this space.

BritCham Virtual Roadshow with British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA): Business Opportunities in Indonesia
BritCham Virtual Roadshow with British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA): Business Opportunities in Indonesia
Friday, 20 November 2020 | 4 pm WIB (9 AM UK) | RSVP

With more than 20 years of in-country experience, Chris Wren, Executive Director of BritCham Indonesia, will share the latest market updates and suggest how to approach business opportunities post-Covid-19.

Indonesia is the largest economy in Southeast Asia and represents more than 40% GDP of ASEAN countries. Indonesia is now there world's fourth most populous nation with 267 million populations after China, India and the US. Indonesia is also the only permanent South East Asia member in G-20 and the world's 10th largest economy in regards to purchasing power parity. The country offers huge opportunities in the various business sectors such as education, infrastructure, financial technology and many more. Human capital development through education in particular is one of the main focuses of the Indonesian government—an opportunity too big to ignore for UK companies. The Covid-19 pandemic has also become a drive for education technology to be implemented across Indonesia in order to achieve more accessible education and higher quality of human capital.

After overviews, book your one-to-one session with Chris Wren to discuss your market access aspirations and strategy. More information will be sent after registration.

This virtual roadshow is exclusively open for UK companies and businesses.
