"Our target is to control the train market in ASEAN member countries. So far, PT INKA has cooperated with Malaysia and Singapore and hopes for cooperation in future with Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and also Cambodia," the companys president director, Agus Purnomo, said here on Wednesday.
While receiving delegates of the 38th ASEAN Railways CEOs Conference (ARCEO) recently, he reminded that the technology used by PT INKA was very reliable and competitive. Besides, it meets the needs of railway service in ASEAN member countries.
He referred PT INKA's success in penetrating many export markets, including Malaysia, Singapore and Australia.
"PT INKA recently entered Bangladesh. We have been ready to meet the need for trains in the ARCEO countries," he pointed out.
Agus used the opportunity to promote his company by inviting the delegates to tour the companys manufacturing plant, including its technological design center and workshop.
Seven railway operators from Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar, besides Indonesia as the host, attended the 38th ARCEO Conference in Yogyakarta.
