TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Doha set up the "Indonesia Corner" at one of the malls in Doha as a platform to promote Indonesia's trade, tourism, and investment potentials in Qatar.
The Indonesian promotion booth, called "Indonesia Corner," is located in Landmark Mall, one of the big malls in Doha, Qatar, according to a written statement from the Indonesian Embassy in Doha received on Saturday.
Indonesian Ambassador to Qatar Muhammad Basri Sidehabi, accompanied by Qatari businessmen and Indonesian citizens residing in Qatar, opened the "Indonesia Corner" at the main lobby of Landmark Mall, Gharaffa, Doha, on Thursday (Dec 5, 2019).
After the successful launch of the Indonesia Expo 2019, the first solo exhibition of Indonesian products in Qatar, the Indonesian Embassy in Doha has striven to maintain the momentum by continually stepping up promotion on Indonesia, particularly those linked to the trade, tourism, and investment potentials, through direct engagement with the Qatari community by setting up the Indonesia Corner.
The Indonesian Embassy in Doha utilized the nine-square-meter booth of the Indonesia Corner to promote varied tourism, trade, and investment opportunities through the dissemination of brochures, books, product samples, and videos.
Ambassador Basri, in his opening remarks, was buoyant that relations between Qatar and Indonesia, specifically in the economic field, will strengthen in due course of time and was optimistic that the Indonesia Expo 2019 and Indonesia Corner would contribute to boosting trade exchange, tourist visits, and investment between the two countries.
The Indonesia Corner will remain open to the public for at least three months on all days from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time, except Friday, when it will operate from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. local time. Periodic cultural performances will also enliven the Indonesia Corner.
