Dutch companies looking for business opportunities in waste in Indonesia

On Tuesday October 1st, six Dutch companies and the Open University signed a so called Partners for International Business agreement with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). The goal is to jointly explore opportunities for business and cooperation in waste and circular economy with Indonesian counterparts in the next two to three years.

According to the Deputy Chief of Mission of the Indonesian Embassy in the Netherlands Mr. Fikry Cassidy, this initiative couldn't have come at a better moment. The Indonesian Government wants to cut waste output by 30% and recycle the remainder by 2025. International business and cooperation will help to achieve this. Signatories to the PIB agreement are the Dutch companies Afvalzorg, AWECT, Hofstetter, HYVA, Leapfrog/De Afvalspiegel and Trisoplast/Multriwell. Bert Keesman of MetaSus will be the coordinator of the initiative, supported by Hans Breukelman of BreAd BV. The PIB cluster will coordinate closely with the ongoing Private Sector Development initiative of Rijkswaterstaat in climate, waste and circular economy. 11-15 November the first business mission will be undertaken to the 3rd Circular Economy Forum in Jakarta, followed by a Roadshow to Surabaya.
