Indonesia is first place to get UKEF Country Head based in-country
Indonesia has become the first country in the world to have a UK Export Finance (UKEF) Country Head to be based in-country. Richard Michael will be based in the British Embassy in Jakarta, leading UKEF’s efforts to grow the UK-Indonesia trading relationships, working closely with the teams involved.
Established in 1989 UKEF, the UK Government’s Export Credit Agency, helps buyers around the world to trade with UK suppliers by offering financing options. With a local presence in Jakarta, UKEF will be better placed to deliver competitive finance to Indonesian companies and public bodies doing business with the UK.
