Doing Business in Indonesia
Indonesian Market Spotlight:
Businesses with global footprints expect their greatest near-term growth to come from Asia, with Indonesia named as a leading second-tier rapid growth market in the region. This creates opportunities for mid-sized Indonesian companies, as well as foreign businesses with or seeking a presence in Indonesia. To implement their expansion strategies, however, those companies need commercial banking solutions that can be scaled and customized to meet their specific needs for risk mitigation, cash management and cross-border financing. Citi Commercial Bank's unique combination of global reach and local expertise offers those solutions and provides clients with access to experienced, dedicated Relationship Managers in Indonesia's top trading partner countries, including China, Singapore, South Korea, the US, India and Malaysia.
"Our first transaction with Citi Commercial Bank (CCB) was in October 2012 when we received trade financing to accommodate the growth and increased demand in the bottled water industry. Aside from financing, CCB has benefitted our company by actively supporting us with Foreign Exchange and with Cash Management services. Our business continued to rapidly grow and by 2014 we felt the need to raise further bank financing to meet our customers' demands. We were originally in discussions with several banks to tap into the syndicated loan market. CCB then showed us how a major bank such as Citi can effectively integrate services, solutions, and financing with their international networks. CCB provided us with more attractive and compelling alternative funding through the participation of Financial Development Institutions."
