Indonesia-Gujarat to sign sister city cluster twinning arrangements

Along with a group of industrialists from Gujarat, Acting Consulate General of Indonesia to India, Hariyanta Soetarto recently visited Cluster Pulse, an economic development agency based in Ahmedabad, along with his colleagues Budi Santoso, Martin Hutabarat, Vijay Tawde and Tapan Chakravarty. They discussed the possibility of cluster twinning between Indonesia and Gujarat to create competitiveness of both economies.


17 clusters were identified, which are common between India and Indonesia (List attached). It was proposed to sign sister city arrangements between these clusters. The benefit will be joint research and development, sharing of best practices, innovation promotion, SME competitiveness, access to finance, training of manpower for skill development and greater market access to both clusters in each other markets.   


Indonesian officials also invited Gujarat-based businesses to participate in the 29th Trade Expo Indonesia which is being organised in Jakarta from 8 to 12 October 2014. Cluster Pulse will be organising a delegation of 20 members from Gujarat to visit the expo for display and one to one meetings.
