Islamabad: Adam Mulawarman Tugio, the Indonesian ambassador to Pakistan, said on Sunday that Indonesia has set a goal of $50 billion in e-commerce trade with Pakistan by 2025.
Pakistan and Indonesia, according to the ambassador, are countries with significant youth populations that may make a difference in the global e-commerce trade and produce a large number of job possibilities in both countries.
According to the Indonesian ambassador, e-commerce trade between Pakistan and Indonesia can help enhance bilateral trade and connect both sides’ young in business and trade. He added that e-commerce integration in both countries might benefit in the promotion of tourism in both countries and the strengthening of ties between their people.
Tugio stated that Pakistan and Indonesia are two of the world’s most beautiful countries, and that by promoting tourism in both countries, reciprocal economic activities will achieve their pinnacle.
In response to a query, he stated that Indonesia had invested in palm oil in Karachi in order to strengthen economic ties between the two countries, and that steps would be taken to engage in the textile sector in Faisalabad in the near future.
The ambassador went on to say that the planned bilateral Free Commercial Agreement (FTA) between Pakistan and Indonesia had a good chance of succeeding, as it would boost the two countries’ economic and trade ties.
