The Jakarta Fair 2019 held at the Jakarta International Expo in Kemayoran, Central Java, from May 22 to June 30 is the venue to showcase prime products from various regions in Indonesia.

Various unique local products of small and medium enterprises can be found in Hall B3-C3. To attract visitors, the booths are decorated by displaying the characteristics of each province.

One of the unique booths which attract a lot of visitors was seen on the booth of the Yogyakarta special region administration. Various products of small and medium enterprises (SME) such as batik, wood crafts, fashion, food, and bags are exhibited.

"These exhibits are excellent products from Yogyakarta," said an usher of the Yogyakarta stand, Jemi Hendri Sugito, Sunday.

He said the products on display had been curated in advance by the local Trade and Industry Service. These products must meet quality permit standards both in terms of hygiene and quality.

"Craftsmen are registered by the industrial service. This is one of the efforts of the provincial government to increase selling power and promotion," he said.

According to him, this year is the 14th year Yogyakarta joining the Jakarta Fair event. But different from the previous years, the number of craftsmen who want to participate in exhibiting their products is increasing this year.

In line with Jemi, one of the keepers of the product booth owned by the East Java provincial administration, Risma Hidayat, said that this annual event was very useful for the promotion of prime products guided by the local industry and trade offices.

According to her, this exhibition is also a medium to attract investors to invest in business development.

"Hopefully this year there will be investors who want to invest their capital," she said.

In addition to the booths from East Java and Yogyakarta, a number of regions also exhibited their unique crafts at the 2019 Jakarta Fair, such as Aceh, Palembang, Cilacap, Banten, and Jakarta.

The annual exhibition which has been going on since 1968 also exhibits other kinds of products such as automotive products, technology, sports equipment, fashion, furniture, handicrafts, and cosmetics.
