The event will also attended by 2 ministers : Dr. Mari E. Pangestu, Minister of Travel & Creative Economy and Gita Wirjawan, Minister of Trade where both of them will be talking about Google’s effort in building the internet business in Indonesia. Julian Persaud, Managing Director, Google Southeast Asia will represent Google and do opening ceremony for this specific event.
Besides officially announcing their Indonesian office, Google will also use this opportunity to introduce their new Country Head for Indonesian operations. DailySocial broke the news about former MNC director Rudy Ramawy who joined Google to lead Indonesian operations together with Krishna Zulkarnaen as Chief Marketing.
As you might also remember, Google has been flirting with Indonesian government to setup their office in the country. And before they even officially operating in Indonesia, Google has been doing someseriousstuff for Indonesia’s emerging internet market.
