The Indonesian Ministry of Transportation has planned for procurement of 3,000 new buses for BRT systems in the 34 provinces by 2019.

Described as a perfect place for an exhibition in a venue built to international standards, this event is an exclusive marketplace and a unique opportunity to network, learn and source new technology, launch/promote new products and also an ideal platform to find more technologies and services from the bus and coach industry, organisers state.

Busworld is the world's largest B2B exhibition for the bus and coach industry, exhibiting buses, coaches and minibuses, as well as parts, components and services.

The procurement of 200 units of new buses will be opened by early 2019.

Indonesia is aiming for 20 million visitors by the end of 2019. Ten new destinations are ready now.

In order to serve the number of visitors, the travel companies are predicting to add 5,000 new coaches by 2019.
