The vast archipelago of Indonesia represents more than 40% of both the GDP and population of ASEAN. The consuming middle class is estimated to number around 80 million, 60% of whom are under 32 years old. These demographics underpin opportunities across all sectors, whether as a trader, investor or venture capitalist. But, market access can be complex and time consuming. Indonesia is for businesses that have prior export experience and can afford to look at market entry in a strategic way.
BritCham Business Centre offers a range of services to assist aspiring British businesses to do market access into the Indonesian market, and therefore achieve their market objectives. These services are as follows.
Navigating into foreign market can be a challenge, especially for those new to it. Sector leads from BritCham Business Centre specialise in providing market research reports catered to British businesses’ needs, with the purpose of accommodating businesses with significant information and updates.
The report include, but is not limited to:
- Sector Overview
- Regulatory Updates
- Market Trends
For British companies interested in hosting a webinar, we are able to provide a platform to share and exchange market information with Indonesian companies, regulators and other prominent stakeholders.
Virtual Roadshow Management
For trade groups and associations in the UK, we are able to facilitate a virtual session followed by one-on-one meetings with country experts.
Trade Mission Management
In support of expanding international market share and opening up opportunities for trade, BritCham Business Centre can arrange trade missions for British trade groups. The trade mission delegation and organiser will be able to take part in introduction to important key players in Indonesia, such as private companies, government bodies and key decision makers.
We can get you in front of decision-makers relevant to your objectives, be they government, trade groups, potential agents or distributors, other market representatives and key stakeholders. We can help you replicate whatever works for you in other markets.

Ideal Foods Ltd
“I think businesses have been quite interested in our products which is quite remarkable. The companies that BritCham has introduced to us, overall I would say that we’ve had a good interest from about 80%. I think we’ve had very very good interest from at least 40-50% which is higher than my expectation. I was expecting around about 20-25%. So, I think BritCham have done their homework.
Sure, one or two meetings did not go as planned, but that was to be expected when you came to the new country for the first time. I was also surprised to find out that no companies were offering by-products to Indonesia. Once again thank you to BritCham and Shella who's been unbelievable.”
Anthony Horner, Managing Director at Ideal Foods Ltd
Heriot Watt University
“The visit met my expectations and the most useful component of the visit was the meeting with DIT and British Council where we were given a very good briefing. The visit to Universitas Indonesia was also very good. We are planning to further develop our engagement with Indonesia. Overall, I was satisfied with the programme for what I needed at the time. For a future visit, more bespoke arrangements to develop partnerships would be very helpful."
Ruth Moir - Assistant Principal (International Development) at Heriot-Watt University
“We couldn’t have done this without BritCham. They have been so helpful, informative, organised and a really good company. It has been a pleasure to work with BritCham and it feels as though they are part of our team.”
Tara Unwin - International Development Manager and Headmaster’s PA at Lingfield College
“General market and trade knowledge is good. To be very knowledgeable in the telecom sector would be unexpected - knowing who to contact and to get the meetings with the right people is more important for us and this objective was achieved!”
James Taylor - Director for Business & Market Development at Methera Global
Norvic Aero Engines Ltd.
"Outstanding. BritCham Indonesia did an absolutely fantastic job and really understood the Norvic proposition. BritCham Indonesia really worked hard to ensure all of our meetings were with appropriate potential customers. Expectations were vastly exceeded. Having used other Chambers of Commerce in Thailand and the Philippines, for example, I continue to be very impressed, but in this instance, overwhelmingly so. I can't think of any way to improve your services. It was an outstanding trade visit, aided by the Chamber for arranging the team to accompany me to all meetings, which made life so much easier, simpler and trouble free. Any company interested in expanding their market should engage with the British Chamber of Commerce in my opinion. Outstanding results and our exports will increase in consequence of this visit, which has been paid for already for business won. Thank you team."
Richard Boddie - CEO at Norvic Aero Engines Ltd.
“BritCham Indonesia arranged a well targeted and full schedule and all of the meetings were valuable in their different ways. It was extremely helpful to have them attend the meetings. The team was great, highly knowledgeable, professional, organised and focused. I was really impressed how quickly the team grasped our product offer, target market and aspirations."
Stuart Mason - International Sales at RM Results
“I was impressed with all the communications between myself and BritCham Indonesia. From being picked up at the airport to being chaperoned to each appointment, I was extremely happy with the level of service and professionalism. I received good advice at business level as well as local knowledge being offered to help make my trip a good one.”
Rachael Laine - Managing Director at Salt-Water Sandals
Serco Asia Pacific

Megan Sloane - Chief of Staff at Serco Asia Pacific
“The trip was arranged in a great manner, regular updates and achieved in a very short space of time. The quality of meetings was excellent and we have received 3 very strong leads overall.”
