Most of us may find out if the cost of transporting goods from Europe to Indonesia is cheaper compared to Europe to neighboring countries such as Turkey and Egypt.


Why is that, yes, because ships carrying goods from Indonesia to Europe in large numbers, require a load with the same or almost the same volume as when heading for Europe.


This was revealed in the Indonesian Business Forum "Discover Indonesia" organized by the SEV Hellenic Federation of Enterprises, Enterprise Greece, the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) in collaboration with the Indonesian Embassy in Athens some time ago.


This shows a positive trend for Indonesia where Indonesia's exports to Europe exceed Indonesian imports from Europe, based on Eurostate data, Indonesia's surplus in the Indonesia-EU trade balance in 2017 amounting to 3,779 million euros.


Vamvaki Ltd Export Manager Dimitriou Konstantinos on the occasion said that the low cost of transporting transportation from the European Union to Indonesia opens up opportunities for the import of raw materials needed in Indonesia at a relatively low cost. One of them is quality cotton from Greece that is difficult to produce in Indonesia but is very much needed for the textile industry in Indonesia.


Another Greek business actor, Dimitris A. Hadjakis revealed, that one of the advantages of doing business with Indonesia is the existence of flexibility in the currency in business transactions.


"In general, Indonesian business people do not mind if transactions are carried out in Euro currency, which makes it easier for Greek businessmen in doing business," Dimitris said.


The forum aimed at Greek businessmen aims to introduce Indonesia's economic potential as a G-20 country. As well as opportunities for cooperation between the two countries both in investment and trade.


Testimonies at the forum attended by around 80 entrepreneurs were delivered by the Director of Business Development, Hasnur Group, Soma Ariyaka. The company established in 1966 and engaged in forestry, mining, plantations, transportation, shipping, special coal ports and docking, exposes the company profile and sectors that are open for collaboration.


Ariyaka conveyed, Hasnur Group's interest in cooperation in shipping with Greece, as Greece has superiority in this field, and is supported by the same characteristics as

Indonesia. Namely both as an island nation, but cooperation is also not closed for other sectors.


The Greek Foreign Ministry through Director B5, Constantine Economides, revealed that the two governments continued to encourage economic relations between the two countries, as seen from the seriousness of both of them to immediately sign the Indonesian and Greek economic cooperation agreement, the concept of which was agreed at a consultation forum meeting in December ago.



Penyebab Pengusaha Yunani Tertarik Bisnis di Indonesia




Sebagian besar dari kita mungkin baru mengetahui jika biaya transportasi angkutan barang dari Eropa ke Indonesia lebih murah apabila dibandingkan dari Eropa ke negara-negara tetangga seperti Turki dan Mesir.


Mengapa demikian, ya karena kapal yang memuat barang dari Indonesia ke Eropa dalam jumlah besar, membutuhkan muatan dengan volume yang sama atau hampir sama dengan saat menuju Eropa.


Hal ini terungkap pada kegiatan Indonesia Business Forum “Discover Indonesia” yang diselenggarakan oleh SEV Hellenic Federation of Enterprises, Enterprise Greece, the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) bekerja sama dengan Kedutaan Besar Republik Indonesia di Athena beberapa waktu lalu.


Hal ini menunjukkan tren positif bagi Indonesia di mana ekspor Indonesia ke Eropa melebihi Impor Indonesia dari Eropa, berdasarkan data Eurostate, surplus Indonesia pada neraca perdagangan Indonesia–Uni Eropa tahun 2017 sebesar 3.779 juta euro.


Export Manager Vamvaki Ltd Dimitriou Konstantinos dalam kesempatan tersebut mengatakan, rendahnya biaya transportasi angkutan dari Uni Eropa ke Indonesia membuka peluang untuk impor bahan mentah yang dibutuhkan di Indonesia dengan biaya yang relatif murah. Salah satunya katun berkualitas asal Yunani yang sulit diproduksi di Indonesia namun sangat dibutuhkan bagi industri tekstil di Indonesia.


Pelaku usaha Yunani lainnya, Dimitris A. Hadjakis mengungkapkan, bahwa salah satu keunggulan berbisnis dengan Indonesia adalah adanya fleksibilitas pada mata uang dalam transaksi bisnis.


"Pada umumnya para pelaku usaha Indonesia tidak mempermasalahkan apabila transaksi dilakukan dalam mata uang Euro, yang mempermudah pengusaha Yunani dalam berbisnis," ungkap Dimitris.


Forum yang ditujukan untuk para pengusaha Yunani tersebut bertujuan untuk memperkenalkan mengenai potensi ekonomi Indonesia sebagai negara G-20. Serta, peluang kerja sama kedua negara baik di bidang investasi maupun perdagangan.


Testimoni pada forum yang dihadiri oleh sekitar 80 pengusaha tersebut disampaikan oleh Direktur Pengembangan Bisnis, Hasnur Group, Soma Ariyaka. Perusahaan yang berdiri 1966 dan bergerak di bidang kehutanan, pertambangan, perkebunan, transportasi, perkapalan, pelabuhan khusus batu bara dan docking tersebut, memamparkan mengenai profil perusahaan dan sektor-sektor yang terbuka untuk dikerja samakan.


Ariyaka menyampaikan, ketertarikan Hasnur Group atas kerja sama di bidang perkapalan dengan Yunani, sebagaimana Yunani memiliki keunggulan di bidang ini, dan didukung oleh karakteristik yang sama dengan

Indonesia. Yakni sama-sama sebagai negara kepulauan, namun kerja sama tidak tertutup juga untuk sektor yang lainnya.


Kementerian Luar Negeri Yunani melalui Direktur B5, Constantine Economides mengungkapkan, kedua pemerintah terus mendorong peningkatan hubungan ekonomi kedua negara, hal ini terlihat dari keseriusan keduanya untuk segera menandatangani kesepakatan kerja sama ekonomi Indonesia dan Yunani, yang konsepnya telah disepakati pada pertemuan forum konsultasi pada bulan Desember yang lalu.
