SBY to hold dialogue with 220 US CEOs
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is slated to attend a business forum held by the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) in Boston on Saturday, with around 220 CEOs from various American companies confirming their presence.
Kadin chairman Mochammad S. Hidayat said in Pittsburgh on Thursday that SBY would address the business forum, focusing on infrastructure development in the country in the coming five years. “The issue is important as we lag behind in infrastructure development,” Hidayat said.
After the president’s speech, a number of CEOs of prominent companies will speak about business climate in Indonesia. The CEOs in attendance will then hold a dialogue with the president.
“The forum will be interesting, given the enthusiasm expressed by the CEOs,” said Hidayat, who is part of the president’s entourage in the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh.
