Croatian Orbico and Indonesian Global Putra International to establish joint-ventures


Branko Roglić, owner of the Croatian company Orbico and a distinguished CEA member and one of the founders of the Croatian Employers’ Association, and Sumadi Kusuma, Global Putra International CEO ( transport and distribution Co.) signed an agreement on establishing a joint-venture Orbico Global, the first of three planned joint ventures, one Zagreb-based, two of them in Jacarta and Hong-Kong. Branko Roglić expressed his satisfaction with the collaboration he established with the Indonesian partner and pointed out good potential for investments in Croatia, despite some difficulties foreign investors might encounter.
Global Putra CEO Sumadi Kusuma also displayed interest in collaboration with the Osijek Airport, and ports of Rijeka and Ploče, as a trade link of China and Indonesia to the EU. Kusuma said that Indonesia was the world's largest producer of palm oil, which is used in biodiesel production in the European Union and that his company was seeking strong logistical infrastructure in Croatia - a river port, an airport and a sea port.
The overall aim of joint ventures is to enhance support for Croatia to become a new European gateway for Indonesian and Asian products, as well as to promote Croatian products in Indonesia and Asia.
