Trade Envoy for Indonesia

I lived and worked in Indonesia years ago as an airline manager, and speak Bahasa Indonesia. As the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy I help UK businesses with high level contacts, where they have something to offer that meets Indonesian needs – project management or engineering design skills for the Asian Games 2018 or national infrastructure projects, for example – as well as encouraging Indonesian businesses to set up in the UK.

I am also Chairman of the Indonesia All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) which exists to promote interest in and understanding of Indonesia among parliamentarians and to develop contacts with parliamentarians and others in Indonesia.
