Taiwan signs MOU with Indonesia to deepen metrological cooperation


To strengthen bilateral cooperation in the field of metrology, Head of the Indonesian Economic and Trade Office to Taipei (IETO) Robert James Bintaryo and Head of the Taipei Economic and Trade Office, Jakarta, Indonesia (TETO) John Chen inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on August 24, 2018 at the Bureau of Standards, Metrology & Inspection (BSMI). The event was attended by BSMI Director-General Liou Ming-Jong. The MOU will launch further cooperation in the aspect of metrology and benefit people and businesses in both countries.

Since the items of cooperation include metrological information exchange, comparison of measurement standards, expert exchange and training, the MOU is deemed helpful in promoting the share of information and experience, as well as the exchange of experts and talents.

The BSMI, Taiwan’s competent authority for metrology affairs, proposed cooperation with its Indonesian counterpart at a Taiwan-Indonesia Joint Commission on Trade and Investment (JCTI) working group meeting on trade in April 2017. After rounds of exchanges, both sides reached an agreement in August 2018 and finished signing the MOU on August 24, 2018.

The BSMI said that “metrology” is the basis for technology and social development and that it ensures fair trade, safeguards the health of nationals, promotes industrial development and lifts up the quality of living. Indonesia is an important leader among ASEAN member states and it is the 10th largest importer for Taiwan. The signing of the MOU on cooperation in metrology not only marks the beginning of a long-lasting and friendly relations between Taiwan and this growing economy, but also paves way for bilateral trade exchanges and industrial growth and competitive power.
