KIRKLEES firms have been invited to hit the export trail to Indonesia.

RTC North, based in Sunderland and Leeds, is leading a trade mission to the country in early December.

The visit is open to all sectors, but should be of particular interest to manufacturers and businesses with an interest in innovation and technology services. It is timed to coincide with South East Asia’s largest manufacturing event, which takes place between December 5 and 8.

RTC North is well-connected with the Business and Technology network in Indonesia, which will help by providing introductions to research and science-based organisations. In addition, the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce has offered to provide contacts with local businesses.

The British Embassy in Jakarta will host a reception on December 3 and will arrange for specialist market research if required.
