The group, which is led by Sumadi Kusuma, the owner of the 6 billion USD Indonesian logistics and transportation corporation Global Putra International Group, have expressed an interest in the concession of Osijek Airport.  Reports suggest that the Indonesians plan to use the Slavonian metropolis as a gateway for goods from Indonesia and China into Central and Eastern Europe, but also open up a channel for the distribution of Croatian products to markets of 1.7 billion people in Asia.

“Besides Osijek Airport, they are also interested in Rijeka and Ploče ports. Croatia’s entry in the EU has created interest from east asian companies,” said Transport Minister Siniša Hajdaš Dončić after meeting the delegation on Thursday. The group were also met by Croatian President Ivo Josipović.
