This year, the National Electronic Catalogue Association (AKEN) as the host ties with Indonesia Procurement Functional Association (IFPI) to enliven the event.
Heaptalk, Jakarta — Indonesia Sustainable Procurement Expo (ISPE) is gearing up to be held on March 15-16, 2023, at Jakarta International Expo (JIEXPO). Adopting the theme “Sustainable Procurement through E-catalogue Transaction and Synergizing Global Products to Amplify Local Eco-friendly Products,” the expo will open opportunities for local and foreign suppliers as well as MSMEs to showcase their products and services to the government.
To achieve this goal, National Electronic Catalogue Association (AKEN), as the host, and PT Keren Indonesia as the organizer, have collaborated with Indonesia Procurement Functional Association (IFPI) to bring its members to the event. IFPI reportedly has 3,000 members who consist of stakeholders that are responsible for managing procurement necessities for the government. The organizing of ISPE also will coincide with the 7th anniversary of IFPI, which will be attended by over 1,000 IFPI members.
By combining these moments, the event is expected to drive the Authorities in embodying transparency in the procurement system through e-catalogue. In addition to IFPI, AKEN also has partnered with Government Agencies and Association, such as the National Public Procurement Agency (LKPP), the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN), the Association of Indonesian City Government (APEKSI) to enliven the event. The Indonesian Public Accountant Institute (IAPI), IT Entrepreneurs Association (APTIKNAS), and WIRANESIA – an organization that supports digitalization for MSMEs – also are invited to join the event. This procurement expo is free, and the ticket can be accessed through ispe.kreen.id.
As additional information, ISPE was carried out for the first time at Westin, Bali Convention Centre. On its first organizing, the pioneer of sustainable procurement expo in Indonesia has attracted over 600 functionaries who are responsible for the Government’s procurement and expenditure.
