Among the 33 buyers, two buyers from Netherlands have been awarded by the government of Indonesia through Ministry of Trade “Primaduta Award”. The awarded companies are (1) Van Der Leeden Mandwerk B.V. for their good performance in importing rattan furniture and rattan products from Indonesia and (2) Dekker Hout Group B.V. for their performance in importing wood products from Indonesia.
The Primaduta Awards shows the Indonesian government's appreciation to the loyal foreign buyers for their commitments for continuously importing Indonesian products as shown by five years of growth of import transactions, increasing import values, or product category expansion.
Today, taking place at Ron Gastro Bar Indonesia, Amstelveen, Indonesian Ambassador for The Kingdom of Netherlands, H.E. I Gusti Agung Wesaka Puja officially handed over the Award to the Van Der Leeden Mandwerk BV and Dekker Hout Group B.V. as an appreciation of their strong commitment on importing Indonesian products for many years with a significant growth.

During the ceremonial Primaduta Award lunch, Ambassador Puja eagerly encourage the Netherlands buyers to follow the selection of Primaduta Award by showing the strong commitment of improving their value of import on Indonesian products and yet the Ambassador Puja hopes that there will be more Netherlands Buyers to be chosen and awarded Primaduta Award next year.
In line with the buyers appreciation, Ambassador Puja also shares the current trade performance of Indonesia-Netherlands for the 3rd Quarter of 2017 that shows a positive growth of 32,15% compared with the same period of last year. Indonesian Export performance for non- oil and gas is also showing a significant growth of 32,9 % compared with the same period of last year.
