Good relations between Indonesia, Japan, and Korea became an inspiration for the chairman of the China Committee at the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN), Garibaldi Thohir to develop similar things in Indonesia’s diplomatic relations with China.

 The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) formed the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry - China Committee (KIKT) to attract more Chinese investors to invest in Indonesia. KIKT will work closely with the government to ensure that Chinese investors can run their business well and get the best partners in Indonesia. In the end, it is hoped that this will also increase Indonesia’s exports to China.

 On March 27th 2023, KIKT office was inaugurated at the Agung Sedayu Group Tower, Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta. The event was attended by the Chairman of KIKT, Garibaldi Thohir, Deputy chairman of international relations at the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Shinta Kamdani, Minister of BUMN, Erick Thohir and Minister of Investment, Bahlil Lahadalia and also members of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Also present was the Founder of Agung Sedayu Group, Sugianto Kusuma.

 “KIKT is the only committee in KADIN that has an office. KIKT not only develops trade relations between the two countries, but also wants to encourage cultural diplomacy, people to people diplomacy to be established between Indonesia and China. So I hope there will be an increase in trade relations, as well as relations between people, the Chinese and Indonesian, culture and tourism,” said Garibaldi.

 The reason for choosing the KIKT office at Agung Sedayu Tower according to Garibaldi Thohir is because of its strategic location so that when guests or delegates from China or other places visit, PIK area is quite representative where there are many restaurants and other culinary tourism areas that can make guests or delegates to be fond of the place and feel at home so that they will be interested in investing in Indonesia.

 As part of the cultural diplomacy efforts, KIKT will receive a cultural mission visit from Xinjiang Province, China in July. They will presenting stage performances in several cities and collaborate with Indonesian cultural artists.

 On this occasion, Erick Thohir explained that the relationship between Indonesia and China has so far been very beneficial to both parties. The KIKT plan to expand diplomatic relations between the two countries was greeted with great enthusiasm where it was believed that the plan would make the relationship between the two more mutually beneficial, sustainable and stronger. This was also confirmed by Shinta W Kamdani who also gave a speech.
