  • About BritCham Indonesia

    • The British Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia (BritCham) has represented business for 40 years and builds on a British business presence that extends more than a hundred years.

      Over those years, we have had the pleasure of welcoming the most influential politicians, business leaders, world commentators, renowned experts in various fields and academicians as guests to over various forums. Last year, we hosted more than one hundred events that provided broad platforms for business development amongst our members.

      Working in partnership with the British Embassy (DIT) and the British Council, whose senior representatives sit on our Board of Management, BritCham is committed to developing a services infrastructure that supports all stages of business development right from their inception in Indonesia.

      Recently, the Chamber established a new unit; BritCham Education Centre. This unit is a wholly-owned business unit of BritCham Indonesia sitting within the BritCham Executive Office. Departing from the results of Business Confidence Index Survey that BritCham Indonesia has been doing for the past 8 years, it shows that talent acquisition, development and retention of top graduating talent is a major challenge to achieving commercial potential.

      This unit offers a holistic approach not only to bring together Indonesian nationals looking to the UK for their education, including internship, work experience, and formal education providers but also blue-chip employers seeking the best returning talent.

  • About Altilium Group Ltd

    • Altilium Group Ltd is a British company established in the UK in 2019. Its operating business has a much longer heritage, dating back to 2008 when it initially acquired the rights to the ground-breaking DNi Process™. In the early stages of development, the company worked closely with Australia’s highly respected Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), testing the process at a pilot plant in Perth, Australia. That test work, which was completed in 2014, delivered highly successful and encouraging results. The recent development of the EV industry delivered a new opportunity for the DNi Process™.
