To achieve this target, the Deputy Arcandra explained three things. First, he asked the delegates to sit mingled between the Indonesian and Czech delegations.

"Do not we need to know each other before making a commitment to do business that is useful," he said in front of the Czech delegation led by the President of the Czech Senate, Milan Stech and the Czech Ambassador to Indonesia, Ivan Hotek, the second, Arcandra explained that to achieve the target in a business forum is to have a strong commitment.

He added that by having a commitment, business people from both countries can carry out and work together to fulfill what they want to achieve.

"We can imagine we already have a lot of business forums, what are the results? The result is a pile of papers, and that is not our goal of holding a business forum," said Arcandra.

Third, said Arcandra, do not waste time to sharpen existing problems, but must be able to explore opportunities. Because according to him, business forums are a way to explore opportunities.
