As one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and already the largest in Southeast Asia with over 270 million people, Indonesia offers immense business opportunities for brands. What’s more, Indonesia is a first-to-file trademark jurisdiction. This means that proactive registration of your trademarks is not only vital to taking advantage of these opportunities, but is also crucial to safeguard control of your brand and its reputation as well in this dynamic market.
