First Meeting of the Polish Business Club in Jakarta


Dear Friends and Club Members,

A BIG step is now complete and the first meeting of the Polish Business Club in Jakarta has taken place.

On the 19th of October at a great venue, Maroush Restaurant, located in Crowne Plaza Hotel, which proudly uses Polish KROSNO-made glasses, Polish Business Club members hosted a group of Polish businessmen whose trip to Indonesia was organized by the Indonesian Embassy in Warsaw.



Nine men assisted by three members of the Indonesian Embassy staff, lead by the Third Secretary of the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Warsaw, Department of Economic Affairs, Mr. Aditya Kardin, arrived in Indonesia for a week, looking for opportunities to expand their businesses. Some of them came for the second and even third time to learn what else can be done for their business to succeed.



The Club’s first meeting, a cocktail evening, included delicious snacks prepared by Maroush Restaurant accompanied by beer and wine, and of course Zubrowka (Polish Vodka). The night included some special events organized by Mr. Adji Sudjianto, a member of our Club. Overall, I think the night was a great success and a good experience for the Club Members.



So far, we have 35 officially registered members in our Club and twelve took part in this event.



For the next meeting I am hoping for two of our members to step forward and present a short talk about their experience in handling business with Indonesian partners/companies/clients. A quick 10–15 minute presentation, an educational anecdote of sorts that you have experienced, will certainly help us all learn something new about doing business in Indonesia.

A full description of the event and photos will be available soon on our website. Meanwhile, I will try to stay in touch with you, recruit new members, and research the best time and venue for our next gathering.

If you still have not paid membership dues or are interested in joining the Polish Business Club in Jakarta, please contact me at or visit our official website
