From MONESCO point of view itself, TEI 2017 is a good opportunity to provide a broader picture of MONESCO both for Indonesians participants and to participants from other countries. At this time MONESCO also continues to expand its reach to new and existing markets such as to Iran, China, Pakistan, India, Malaysia, Japan, and also Egypt. Not only to show and offer products from MONESCO, but TEI 2017 becomes an opportunity for us to share stories, maintain relationship, and get to know our fellow businessmen who are also doing export and import activities. This big event, we did not want waste our time just only to meet our partners spread over several continents in the world, because this is a good opportunity to maintain relationships with our partners who have basically have been providing support for us up to this moment.
