Investing in Sumatra – From Haze to Hope
AmCham members were privileged to hear the latest on investing in Sumatra from local officials from four of the largest provinces on the island. South Sumatra Governor Alex Noerdin introduced the vast array of possibilities across the island and then spoke even more passionately about those in his home province. He was joined by representatives of North Sumatra (Medan), West Sumatra (Padang), and Lampung (Bandar Lampung) who spoke in depth about the opportunities in their provinces.
Principal Officer of the U.S. Consulate in Medan Robert Ewing chaired the first-ever session of its kind at AmCham. The sold out audience asked tough questions to the panel members and was rewarded with forthright replies that elucidated the potential and challenges of operations on Indonesia’s second largest island.
