Busworld South East Asia in 2019

The 3rd edition of Busworld South East Asia will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia. The exhibition and congress are scheduled on March 20-22, 2019. “Busworld decided to organise a new exhibition in Indonesia because of the promising bus and coach markets in Indonesia as well as in its neighbouring countries”, said the organizers. Indonesia has a population of 260 million people (40% of ASEAN population) spread over 34 provinces with 415 districts. Due to traffic congestion by cars, the government of Indonesia is continuously improving the public transport system with for example a Bus Rapid Transit system in Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Solo and other provinces. The Indonesian Ministry of Transportation has planned for procurement of 3,000 new BRT system buses in the 34 provinces by 2019.
