Gloucester MP welcomes Indonesian Ambassador to boost county trade & investment export links

City MP and Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy Richard Graham is hosting Indonesian Ambassador Dr Rizal Sukma and Trade and Investment officials on Friday to meet Gloucestershire businesses and organisations like the University of Gloucestershire to boost business flows.

Richard said, “Ambassador Rizal is a former London School of Economics scholar with strong links to the President and a keen advocate of encouraging foreign investment. He’ll meet Gloucestershire businesses like Green Fuels and Fluid Transfer who already have business in the world’s fourth most populous country and others who could be there or have goals to achieve.

HE Rizal Sukma said, “I’m much looking forward to visiting Gloucestershire, home of leading energy, manufacturing and cyber with Richard, who has done a lot to build relations between our countries. President Jokowi’s government is the most open ever and ready to welcome the UK’s innovative and creative technologies.”

David Owen, CEO of GFirst, added “this is an excellent opportunity for Gloucestershire businesses to engage with Indonesia – a leading growth economy and a fast growing number of middle class consumers.”
