TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Vladivostok, connected with Japan’s Sakaiminato and Tottori ports has become a gateway for Indonesia’s commodities, such as tea, coffee, paper, rubber, furniture, fishery products and palm oil to Rusia.
The city of Vladivostok, located near South Korea and Japan, is an alternative entrance for Indonesian products to be marketed in Russia and Europe, the Indonesian Embassy to Russia said in a press release as quoted by Antara on Friday, September 4.
Indonesian Ambassador to Russia Djauhari Oratmangun and Trade Attaché Hari Prasetyo were scheduled to visit Vladivostok on September 2-5, 2015 to attend the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF), a large economic forum inaugurated by Russian President Vladimir Putin and attended by more than 10,000 people from 32 countries. During the event, the Indonesian Ambassador launched an exhibition room to showcase Indonesian commodities and products called “Rumah Indonesia”.
Djauhari said that the inauguration of Rumah Indonesia in Vladivostok has made the city as a showroom of Indonesia’s commodities and products in Eastern Russia, in addition to an information center for trade, tourism and investment in Indonesia.
Heryono added that Rumah Indonesia would become a center for trade because the relationship between Indonesia and Vladivostok had been focused on economy and trade.
