CCC paves way for Canadian businesses to win government contracts in Indonesia


OTTAWA, Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) is pleased to announce two new Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) that will help qualified Canadian exporters secure government contracts in Indonesia. MOUs are formal arrangements that allow countries to engage in projects of mutual benefit to grow and deepen the bilateral relationship.

MOU for development of a Green Airport

On the sidelines of the 2022 G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia, CCC concluded an MOU with the province of North Kalimantan for the development of a Green Airport. The airport concept is part of COP21 commitments made by Indonesia to further develop the country's economy, while reducing emissions by 31.9% by 2030. The proposed airport will link 8 other airports, and provide local aquaculture and agriculture industries with more direct access to major international markets.

In addition, CCC is working with the Canadian Embassy and Canada's Trade Commissioner Service to foster other opportunities regarding airport assets in Indonesia.

MOU on food security, agricultural products and services

In the lead up to the G20 Summit, CCC also signed an MOU with the Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises of Indonesia concerning food production. It seeks to address rising food security concerns resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, by providing access to Canadian commodities, including but not limited to potash, wheat, grains, soybeans, plus other agricultural goods and services which may be appropriate. The MOU will not replace existing commercial orders and is intended to provide the Indonesian government as an option, the ability to procure and contract for products and services in this sector.

International Prime Contractor

Through these two MOUs, CCC will bring Canadian businesses to Indonesia and offer a unique Government of Canada guarantee. As part of the International Prime Contractor program, CCC signs government to government (G2G) contracts that have the legal effect of being signed in the name of the Government of Canada, providing an assurance of contract performance.

CCC has decades of direct experience developing MOUs with government buyers that enable government-to-government contracts in alignment with national procurement laws.
