On this context, Indonesia and Türkiye have the potential to collaborate and contribute to one another’s financial progress. With comparable options, equivalent to pure magnificence and progressive enterprise sectors, each nations can profit from nearer enterprise and tourism ties.

Indonesia is one in all my favourite nations in Asia, because of my shut Indonesian associates. It’s a form, heat, smiling, welcoming, and brotherly nation to Turks. Therefore, it is likely to be helpful to ask Indonesians to Türkiye and Turks to Indonesia as Turkish entrepreneurs in a Turkish-Indonesian firm.

Therefore, I wish to point out on this write-up that two exceptional similarities are shining out of many, which might contribute to each nations. Firstly, there are beautiful pure landscapes in Indonesia that Turkish vacationers ought to take note of go to as soon as in a lifetime. Secondly, many different progressive enterprise sectors might be helpful to each side. Frankly, from my perspective, I contemplate this invitation greater than only a money-oriented method however moderately as a method of discovering the potential for Turkish and Indonesians in enterprise and tourism.

Financial cooperation

It’s the proper time to collaborate and play crucial roles within the thriving Turkish, Indonesian economies as contributors since all sides wants quick financial restoration as a result of destruction brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Indonesia is the biggest economic system in ASEAN and probably the most populous nation within the bloc. These two options create big potential for worldwide enterprise circles, notably Turkish ones. The rising client market in Indonesia, pure assets, intact setting, consciousness and familiarity of/with know-how, utilization of know-how, and so forth are just a few favorable mixtures right here that all the time whet the urge for food of all kinds of buyers. On this regard, cities equivalent to Jakarta, Surabaya, and Semarang await new buyers preferring cities nearer to the ports. Building corporations could take part within the new Indonesian capital initiatives in Kalimantan or different native mega initiatives that may create billions of alternatives.

Indonesia attracts thousands and thousands of vacationers yearly, with Bali being one of many prime locations for foreigners. The numbers of worldwide arrivals in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2022 had been 16 million, 4 million, 16 million, and 5 million, respectively.

Indonesians can host and appeal to thousands and thousands of vacationers as Jakarta targets to lure 8 million worldwide vacationers in 2023. I hope that extra Turks will discover Indonesia’s nice riches.

Jakarta, Yogjakarta, Denpasar in Bali, and Batam are widespread cities that native and international vacationers favor to go to. Some particular places are Lake Toba in North Sumatra, Borobudur in Central Java, Mandalika in Lombok, Labuan Bajo in East Nusa Tenggara, and Likupang in North Sulawesi.

If you happen to’re contemplating organising a enterprise in Türkiye, cities like Istanbul, Izmir, Manisa and Ankara are nice locations to start out. Nevertheless, the kind of enterprise you intend to open will decide the perfect location and marketplace for you.

Like Indonesians, Turks additionally like to journey, and their numbers develop yearly.

Consequently, Turkish vacationers contributed $5 billion (TL 95.20 billion) to the worldwide tourism business. On the identical time, Türkiye attracts round 40 or 50 million international vacationers yearly and goals to host over 60 million friends within the coming years.

Türkiye and Indonesia have a protracted historical past of friendship and have been strategic companions since 2012. Each nations are prepared to diversify and enhance their relations, specializing in a number of key sectors, together with protection, setting, know-how, and free commerce agreements. A strengthened partnership between Ankara and Jakarta will undoubtedly be a win-win prospect.
