Southeast Asia's Largest Market—and World’s 4th Largest Country!
With its population of over 253 million, APTech Members have an exciting opportunity to enhance and advance Indonesian printers’ productivity and competitiveness with U.S. technology.


Packaging & Publishing Markets in Growth Mode!
Driven by thriving economic conditions and a growing middle class, the demand for a wide range of non-commodity packaged products and services is fast tracking in all sectors. Plus, the expanding urbanization rate and rising education levels are increasing demand for all publishing print products: books, newspapers, and magazines.


The Geographic Advantage!
Strategically located, Indonesia borders on the South China Sea—one of the world’s busiest sea lanes that transports over U.S. $5 trillion in global cargo annually


Booming Economic Growth!
The U.S. Commercial Service currently ranks Indonesia 4th in the East Asian Pacific region for new-to-market export success of U.S. Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs), and 2nd in the Southeast Asia region overall.
