The Consul General met with top Saint Louis Trade Center officials, the County Executive Dooley, UMSL Chancellor George, local businesses and entrepreneurs as well as local Indonesians currently living in the Saint Louis area.
The Consul General was also interviewed on UMSL radio by SLBSC team member Alex Soetjipto and DJ Stephen Francis Engelmeyer.
The first of many expected visits to Saint Louis by the Consul General, the day’s events offered many insights to all who attended. Plans are now being put into action for events in Summer 2010 specifically designed to more fully educate the Saint Louis business community of Indonesian resources available and partnership opportunities with Indonesian businesses.
