SAI Backs Service Sector Reform in Indonesia

Jakarta, Indonesia, 28 June 2007. SAI Global Limited (ASX: SAI) has joined a high level trade and investment delegation to Indonesia in a bid to help drive reform in the country’s service sector. The Federal government backed delegation of 35 Chief Executives Officers from leading Australian companies was the largest official group to visit Indonesia since the 1997 financial crisis.

Led by the Australian Minister for Trade Warren Truss, the senior business figures met with the Indonesian Trade Minister, Dr Mari Pangestu, to discuss a potential free trade agreement and promote dialogue between the two countries. They also met with other key economic ministers and a range of Indonesian business organizations.

SAI Global’s Chief Executive, Ross Wraight, said: “We are delighted about the prospect of further developing our significant interests in Indonesia and will be working with both the government and industry to continue to build confidence in the products and services Indonesia brings the world.”

“Our Indonesian operations, which help drive productivity and improvement across the Indonesian business landscape, remain one of our most successful globally and were significantly enhanced in 2004 with the acquisition of the management systems certification business in Indonesia of the Dutch company, KEMA.”

“We are the second largest provider of independent assurance services in Indonesia and are now among the top ten providers globally. We have been operating here for ten years and we intend to continue expanding our operations through our offices in Jakarta, Surabaya and Medan.”

“We are committed to helping Indonesian businesses drive productivity and access the technologies, standards and services they need to trade freely across the region and into the Northern hemisphere.”

“All businesses, large and small, require quick and easy access to the relevant technical and business standards and government regulations if they are to operate effectively in a modern economy. For many small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) navigating their way through the regulatory maze can be an overwhelming burden and coupled with the cost of compliance can often make accessing a market an impossibility.”

Other Australian based organization on the delegation included Rio Tinto, Macquarie Bank and Commonwealth Bank of Australia. For further information please visit or phone +61 2 8206 6863.
