Introduction

Indonesia Canada Chamber of Commerce is an organization dedicated to serving the Indonesian-Canadian business community by:

  • Providing information and analysis on business trends in Indonesia;
  • Hosting events providing opportunities to learn about and discuss business in Indonesia and in Canada;
  • Representing the general interests of Canadian business to the Indonesian government;
  • Organizing social networking events to bring our members closer together.

Many of our members are Canadians doing business in Indonesia, but we also have members from around the world, including many from our host country, Indonesia. One of our most important aims is to be a “bridge”, either between representatives of various business interests or between business and government.

ICCC was formed through the merging of two existing independent organizations. The Canadian Business Association which largely represented Canadian business people in Indonesia, while the Indonesia Canada Business Council which largely consisted of Indonesian business people interested in closer business ties with Canada. Feeling that much effort was duplicated, it was agreed that one strong organization was preferable to two smaller ones, and both organizations decided to merge. Subsequently we have expanded operations where now we also represent Canadian business interests in the International Business Chamber. This group actively lobbies the Indonesian government to ensure that the views of international businesses are heard when new legislation or regulations are being discussed.
