This is a great opportunity to expand international exports, especially in the Middle East," said the Director-General of National Export Development and Commissioner General of the Indonesia Pavilion Didi Sumedi.

Didi elaborate, as the largest city in Banten Province, Tangerang is an industrial manufacturing center with more than 1,000 factories with advanced machines and a qualified workforce. Until now, the Tangerang Regency has more than 400 MSMEs and SMEs that produce fashion products, furniture, handicrafts, food and beverages, as well as services and tourism.

In addition, the program also exhibits wild cocoa powder which is entirely produced using local raw materials.

"We make sure that the products that we exhibit are of high quality. We hope that, through the Expo 2020 Dubai event, the products on display can be introduced to a worldwide audience. In addition, it also motivates other SME entrepreneurs to be more empowered and to further improve product quality to penetrate the global market, "explained Didi.

The Head of Trade for the Industry and Trade Office of Tangerang Regency, Iskandar Nordat, added that Tangerang Regency's participation in the Expo 2020 Dubai event aimed to facilitate MSMEs and SMEs to increase competitiveness and expand market access.

"Through the business forum activities held, we hope that our products will be able to help increase foreign exchange for the country's economy, especially amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Expo 2020 Dubai for us is not only for promoting local products but can also be a momentum to promote culture by promoting local values," said Iskandar.
