Success Story

Coconut flower sugar – a niche product from Indonesia

The ambitious start-up company KULAU GmbH from Berlin has specialised in importing coconut-based products. The name of the enterprise speaks for itself: in Papua-New Guinea’s creole language Tok-Pisin, “kulau” means “young, green coconut”.

The company exclusively sells sustainable, naturally manufactured fair-trade organic products. In its selection of suppliers, KULAU adheres to the highest standards. Both in regard to product quality, good working conditions and environmentally-friendly cultivation methods at the plantations, the German importer makes high demands on its foreign partners. Professional sourcing is therefore very important to the company when it comes to locating suitable buying markets for its products in tropical countries. This is where the help of the Import Promotion Desk (IPD) came in handy. The agency introduced KULAU to the suitable partner, saving the company a lot of time and money.

Legal and sustainable tropical timber from Peru

The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) and its partners in Peru support responsibly operating companies in their efforts to export certified timber products to Europe.

In this way, international development cooperation and import promotion go hand in hand.

BGA Broschüre Import

Import - Garant für Deutschlands Wirtschaftsstärke

Die Bedeutung der Importe für den deutschen Außenhandel wird vielfach unterschätzt. Das spiegelt sich auch in der Außenwirtschaftsförderung Deutschlands wider: Unternehmen werden bei der Erschließung neuer Absatzmärkte unterstützt. Die Suche nach neuen ausländischen Lieferanten hingegen wird kaum gefördert. Dies ist nicht mehr zeitgemäß. Durch die fortschreitende Globalisierung werden Importe immer wichtiger für die deutsche Volkswirtschaft.

Der Bundesverband Großhandel, Außenhandel, Dienstleistungen (BGA) möchte mit dieser Broschüre auf die zunehmende Bedeutung von Einfuhren für das Wirtschaftsmodell Deutschlands aufmerksam machen. Mit der Errichtung des Import Promotion Desk ist dem BGA gemeinsam mit Partnern der Einstieg in die entwicklungsorientierte Importförderung gelungen. Der BGA setzt sich dafür ein, dass die Importförderung in Deutschland weiter verstärkt wird.

Herausgeber: Bundesverband Großhandel, Außenhandel, Dienstleistungen (BGA)

Guide to Successful Trade Fair Participation

A survey conducted among business leaders in Germany revealed that 86% of all of them consider trade fairs as one of the most important tools in the sourcing and procurement process.1 For a simple reason: business is done between humans. People want to meet each other, see each other and get to know each other. Especially in a world that is characterised by growing digitalisation, real-life experiences make the difference.

Participation at a foreign trade fair is a not all that difficult. However, it requires good planning and meticulous execution. Especially for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), planning a participation at a foreign trade fair may be a daunting task.
This guide is intended to help SMEs approach this task successfully.

Fast-growing timber from Indonesia showcased at interzum 2017

Bonn, May 22nd, 2017 – Indonesian fast-growing timber is significantly lighter than local timber species, its cultivation helps preserve the natural forests and its import is zero risk with respect to the EUTR. And its use for construction, furniture and interior works has been constantly increasing. This trend has been confirmed at interzum 2017, the world's leading trade fair for furniture production and interior design, at which six Indonesian lightweight timber exporters have successfully presented their products.

Important volumes of the lightweight species Balsa, Albasia and Jabon are being planted by Indonesian small-scale farmers, therewith reforesting damaged areas. The big advantage: these lightweight timber species grow up to five times faster than spruce does in Europe – the tropical climate in Indonesia allows for constant growth.
On the other hand, the European industry can take advantage of the outstanding characteristics of Indonesian lightweight timber. A closet made from these species has only half of the weight compared to one made from spruce; shelves are less vulnerable to deformation due to empty weight; and lightweight timber block boards weigh only 50 percent of particle boards.
The success of the Indonesian participation in interzum 2017 confirms the growing importance of low weight solutions in for construction, furniture and interior works. The Indonesian pavilion saw many visitors that wanted to learn more about the six exporters which offered a wide range of products, from doors for interior and exte-rior use to boards and panels for use in vehicles, ships, for furniture and instru-ments. Their attention had also been caught by the stand construction entirely made from lightweight timber, serving as an example for the multiple use of the material.
The Indonesian exporters at interzum have up to 40 years’ experience in wood processing. Indonesia, which had issued legality certifications based on the “Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu” (SVLK) sine 2013, is also the first country to issue FLEGT licenses for all exports. The competent authorities in Indonesia confirm with these FLEGT licenses the legality of the exported products – which means that importers of FLEGT licensed products do not have to apply the due diligence required by the European Timber Regulation (EUTR).
The Indonesian participation in interzum has been initiated by the Import Promotion Desk (IPD. The main reason for supporting qualified exporters in accessing the German and European market is the high level sustainability of these tropical timber species. Frank Maul, Expert Sourcing & Purchase at IPD, states that “we are convinced that the preservation of tropical forests can only work if the still existing natural forests are being managed in a sustainable manner; and on the other hand, damaged areas are being reforested and thus can serve as a puffer zone.” The IPD brings together timber importers and Indonesian producers, closely coordinating with associations and initiatives of the timber sector.
