Primaduta Award as an Appreciation Event for Loyal Indonesian Products Importers

The Primaduta Award holds a special place in the hearts of importers who have tirelessly promoted Indonesian products in their respective countries. Established in 1996, this annual award, named after the Indonesian word for “excellent” or “outstanding,” is bestowed by the Indonesian government to honor foreign importers who have made remarkable contributions to promoting and selling Indonesian goods in their respective countries. It serves as a testament to their unwavering dedication and hard work, while simultaneously creating a broader awareness of Indonesian products and culture worldwide.

This prestigious accolade recognizes importers who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to showcase Indonesian products through various channels. These dedicated individuals have played a vital role by providing valuable market insights and information to Indonesian exporters. Some of the benefits experienced by these companies are that they might collaborate and be supported in various means by the Indonesian government to strengthen their business with Indonesian companies.


In 2022, the distinguished recipient of the Primaduta Award from Italy was Balibali Srl, a company that has been importing Indonesian handicrafts and textiles to Italy for over two decades. Through their extensive efforts, Balibali Srl has not only fostered a greater appreciation for Indonesian culture and heritage but has also played a pivotal role in raising awareness of Indonesian products within Italy.
