Didi explained that in order to encourage business transactions at JMFW, the Ministry of Commerce also cooperates with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin), the Association of Indonesian Retailers and Tenants of Shopping Centers (Hippindo), and the Association of Indonesian Retail Employers (Aprindo). The goal, to attract buyers, including domestic retailers and distributors, optimize the role of trade representatives to be present at JMFW, and encourage business cooperation between international buyers and Indonesian companies.

There are also representatives from associations that participated in the implementation of JMFW, namely the Indonesian Pertextilan Association (API), the Association of Indonesian Cosmetics Companies (Perkosmi), the Association of Companies and Cosmetics Associations (PPAK), Indonesian Fashion Chamber (IFC), Rahaman Gadis, Hippindo, Aprindo, as well as 202 entrepreneurs engaged in modest fashion, accessories, and cosmetics.

“Indonesia is optimistic that it will be able to dominate the distribution of the world modest fashion market because it is supported by the trend factor of increasing the global Muslim population, which is dominated by millennials. It seems to me that millennials are influencing modest fashion trends. In addition, Indonesia also has the advantages of rich cultural diversity, local wisdom, and high quality of human resources,” Didi said.

Deputy Minister for International Relations Anne Patricia Sutanto said, JMFW does not only belong to a specific party, but belongs to the Indonesian nation. “We want JMFW to belong to Indonesia, not only from the business side or other ministries/institutions. This is because the ecosystem created at JMFW is not just from one ministry/agency. We are one. I also hope that all programs at JMFW are sustainable to make an impact for the people in the ecosystem,” Anne said.

This activity can be a synergy for all of us,” Loto said.
