Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - RIYADH: Prominent figures from the Saudi business community attended an iftar party and awards ceremony at the Indonesian Embassy in Riyadh on Tuesday to celebrate the close collaboration between the two nations.

The big winners on the night were Bin Shihon Trading Co. and Jarir Marketing Co., which were presented with Primaduta Awards by Indonesia’s ambassador to the Kingdom, Dr. Abdul Aziz Ahmad.

The awards, which were established in 1996, are presented annually by the Indonesian government to Saudi importers that have shown commitment to trading with the Southeast Asian nation and promoting good business ties.

They take their name from the Indonesian word for “outstanding.”

As well as the two main prizewinners, Abdul Latief Jameel Co., Said Bawazir Group and Sami Al-Khatiri Trading Est. each received special recognition for their work.

“I hope this could further motivate Saudi businesses to deepen cooperation with Indonesian businesses seeking to expand their footprint in Saudi Arabia and the wider Middle East region,” Ahmad said.

He also sent an open invitation to all Saudi businesses to take part in Trade Expo Indonesia 2024, which will be held in October.

According to figures from the embassy, Saudi Arabia is the 21st biggest buyer of Indonesia’s exports, including products such as cars, rubber tires, fish, paper goods, charcoal and plywood.

Indonesia imports ethylene glycol, sulfur, polypropylene, polyethylene and iron from Saudi Arabia.

Political and trade ties between the two countries have increased significantly since King Salman visited Indonesia in 2017.

In October last year, Riyadh and Jakarta established the Saudi-Indonesia Supreme Coordinating Council, headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Joko Widodo, during the Indonesian president’s visit to Kingdom.
