On 1-6 October, 2012, HD AsiaAdvisory led a group of major Indonesian transportation stakeholders to visit Dublin and Kilkenny, Ireland. The event was organized by Enterprise Ireland, an Irish Government Body on Investment, to extend the country’s business cooperation with Indonesian counterparts in transportation sector.

Meanwhile HD AsiaAdvisory is represented by Bambang Gunawan, and Marcel Roos who represented HD AsiaAviation.

During the visit, Enterprise Ireland brought the Indonesian delegates to directly experience Intelligent Transport System in Ireland. In Dublin,  Delegates were transported by eCars, boarding to Dublin Tram (Luas), Dublin Bus and Train; watched and learnt the operational of Central Control Room or Ireland’s National Roads Authority (NRA), Railway Procurement Agency (RPA), and Dublin City Council; and visited Irish Rail Works and Maintenance.

Moreover, during the ITS Conference in Kilkenny, delegates were matched with Irish Companies through “unique” method. Irish Companies and Indonesian delegates had done speed dating in which both sides had to do a match making process that had been appointed before with time limitation. This kind of meeting would allow and decide if there is any company that they would like to get to know better and possibly have an actual cooperation with in the future.
