TEMPO Interactive, Batam: A delegation of about 38 Polish businessmen led by Remigiusz Yakubuski yesterday met with the governor of Riau Archipelago, Ismeth Abdullah, in Batam.
Accompanied by Indonesian Ambassador to Poland, Hazairin Pohan, the group asked about investment opportunities in the free trade zone and port areas of Batam, Bintan, and Karimun. According to Pohan, the businessmen come from the mining, garbage, and plantation sectors.
They also asked the governor whether they had to collaborate with local (Indonesian) businessmen or if they can use 100 percent of their own capital when opening a business in Batam.
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will pay a visit to Poland during the meeting on climate change in Copenhagen, Denmark. "The President will make a stop in Poland," Pohan said.
