Poland has been eyeing Indonesia’s railway sector, according to the diplomats and business representatives. In the 2022 Railwaytech Indonesia exhibition, Polish Ambassador Beata Stoczyñska mentioned, “Currently, Polish railway companies are looking at Indonesia’s ambitious railway development strategy.” Stoczyñska said she expected these business-to-business (B2B) discussions to drive investment and cooperation opportunities. She added Polish companies “produce trains, state-of-the-art equipment, IT solutions, and infrastructure systems for the railway networks.”
“Poland is very pleased to observe that Indonesia plans to announce the ASEAN-Indonesia infrastructure strategy as one of its priorities during its chairmanship next year. Poland is very much interested in contributing to this priority, with a strong emphasis on the railway sector,” Stoczyñska emphasized.
In effect, Polish rolling stock manufacturer Pesa, who was present at the exhibition, is interested in Indonesia according to Railway Supply Magazine. The Polish company is keen on delivering urban and suburban trains, and trams. Representatives of the Pesa company have held numerous meetings in Indonesia on cooperation with the local market. Nonetheless, no final decision has been taken though there is a breath of fresh optimism.
