TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:German car producer, Volkswagen AG, will build an assembly plant in Indonesia, which will be the basis for market development in Southeast Asia. Volkswagen Passenger Car Council member, Christian Klingler, said the world market tendency showed the importance of sustainable market development in developing countries. “The only way to save global development and labor is by focusing on the market in the future,” he said at a press conference yesterday.

According to Klingler, this project is a collaboration with Indomobil Group to expand the market in Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia.

The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KADIN) deputy in charge of industry, Gunadi Sindhuwinata, said Volkswagen’s plan will raise the image of Indonesia as a strategic partner in developing the automotive world. “They see Indonesia as a good place.
