In January 1952, a group of Indonesian entrepreneurs/industrialists undertook the establishment of an association under the name of PUSPI (Indonesian Employers’ Council on Socio-Economic Affairs) as a forum of employers, workers and the government. After more than three decades, in 1985, the name transformed into APINDO (Asosiasi Pengusaha Indonesia or The Employers' Association of Indonesia).
Recognizing the importance of collaboration and partnership for international business success, APINDO launched the Indonesia’s International Strategic Partnership Centre (ISPC) that accelerates strategic business cooperation among foreign and Indonesian enterprises.
The Indonesia’s ISPC is supported by APINDO's members (Indonesian industrialists and enterprises) in 26 respective provincial and 173 district boards that actively creates new investments and trade opportunities for sustainable markets. The organization’s strategies are to match up the foreign and local businesses by investing the business in Indonesia and/or by creating global market for Indonesian products/services, and also to create more Indonesian global entrepreneurs.
Our activities aim to facilitate, encourage, and support business cooperation between foreign and Indonesian companies for strategic networking, business matching programs, and accelerating trade and investment process by working with trade associations, private corporations, chambers of commerce, government entities, and other organizations to achieve one of APINDO’s mission of enhancing Indonesia’s investment and global trade competitiveness.
