Jakarta, MINA – The Governor of DKI Jakarta Province, Anies Baswedan, received a visit from the Palestinian Ambassador to Indonesia, Zuhair Al Shun, along with his delegation at City Hall Jakarta, on Monday (22/7).

The visit discussed the potential economic relations between Palestine and Jakarta.

“I hope that relations between Indonesia and Palestine will be more familiar through trade relations between the two. Because people have relationships with people, government diplomatic relations have also existed, just a business-to-business relationship that needs to be developed,” Anies said.

This business relationship will benefit both countries, as well as Palestine to export its products, such as dates, olive oil, and baklava which are considered to be enjoyed by the citizens of the Capital City.

“Palestine has its own place in Indonesian society so that it will enable their products to be exported to Indonesian society, especially citizens of the capital city,” he added.

In fact, Governor Anies specifically invited delegates and Palestinian business people to show off their good products at the people’s bazaar which will be held in September, on Jalan Sudirman-Thamrin, Central Jakarta.

“If you want to start with a bazaar, you can join the Muharram festival next September. The products can be introduced and later next year we can explore more with Jakarta business partners. And here are representatives of the Jakarta Chamber of Commerce and Industry, HIPMI Jakarta,” Anies said.

In addition, the commitment of the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government that wants to make Palestine as a business partner is shown by providing easy information, especially regarding the issue of administrative procedures for business licenses in Jakarta.

The visit was also expected to continue to improve good relations between Jakarta and Palestine.

“I hope the Palestinian delegates can visit the Public Service Mall and also the Jakarta Investment Center to be able to ask any questions about investment procedures,” he said. (L/Ast/P2)
