JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The Indonesian Embassy in Brussels has conducted promotional activities for various environmentally friendly clothing and furniture products from Indonesia in the city of Antwerp, Belgium. The promotional activities were conducted together with representatives of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Adhyata Belgium.

According to a written statement from the Indonesian Embassy in Brussels received in Jakarta, on Sunday (06/20/2021), the event was opened by the Indonesian Ambassador to Belgium Andri Hadi, on Saturday (06/19), following the reopening of Belgium after a long lockdown period due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The momentum for the reopening of Belgium after a prolonged lockdown due to the pandemic was immediately seized by Indonesia by launching this promotional activity as an effort to increase Indonesian exports in Belgium, especially exports of environmentally friendly apparel and furniture," Andri Hadi said, as quoted from a written statement from the Indonesian Embassy in Brussels.

The event also featured eco-friendly clothing from Zoe and Wastu, the brands that created modern clothes using recycled materials from fabric left over from factories.

The promotion of environmentally friendly clothing and furniture uses the network of creative actors, namely Codesignhub which is located in the city of Antwerp in Belgium, and sells various unique products that have added value.

In addition to product exhibitions, the Indonesian Embassy in Brussels also presented a photo exhibition featuring various Indonesian cultural textiles that follow environmentally friendly themes, including batik, ikat, and ulos.
