Business Management Hungary checked in to the “Indonesian days” event at the Millenáris last weekend. And we saw the wonder…
Indonesia is located in South-East-Asia on 18 100 smaller-bigger islands, its population is about 250 000 000. The biggest island is Java, its population is 140 000 000. Here we find the capital, Jakarta as well. But why Indonesia is uniquely interested to Business Management Hungary?
Because Indonesia is:
– an emerging market,
– member of G20,
– the 16th largest economical country based on nominal GDP,
– the 8th largest based on the PPP,
– holding an exceptional relationship with Hungary both on diplomatic and commercial levels.
And because Business Management Hungary loves smiling people! (Indonesia is the happiest country in the World based on Ipsos’ Global Happiness Report.)
We did have the honor to meet H. E. Ms. Wening Esthyprobo FATANDARI, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Indonesia to Hungary. (As for the dress code: we have been invited to an informal, family event. Next time I will know what it means!)
She was not just extremely kind and polite, but also, knowing her main goals as an ambassador we are really suspenseful about the results. She does a lot in order to bring Indonesia closer to the Hungarian people, especially to students. That’s why she often visits high schools countrywide because as she told in an interview: she believes that it’s more effective to visit among the future generation to introduce her mother country which this way becomes much more evident to them to see, how rich it is ethnically. And also European and Hungarian people will know better where this beautiful country lays.
Another “secret” information about her: her son, Ras Muhamad is a famous reggae singer in Indonesia. Also called Reagge Ambassador. Like ‘mother’, like son?
During the event Business Management Hungary had been represented by Ms. Boglárka VINCZE and Mr. Adorján TÓTH.
We saw there amazing hand made products, traditional Balinese dance, furniture, jewelries and of course we could taste a tight but really delicious segment of the Indonesian gastronomy.
Maybe it did not come to light finally why Business Management Hungary visited to the Indonesian day, what we have to do at all with Indonesia? To stay a little bit mysterious let me quote an Indonesian phrase:
“Ada asap ada api.”
The meaning is: There is smoke if there is fire. Or in English: Every why has its wherefore. Well … yes, it has.
Special thanks for the invitation to Mr. Hikmat Rijadi director- and Mr. Attila Kovács attache of ITPC for the kind invitation.
