About Us

Global Indonesia Professionals’ Association (GIPA) was kickstarted in 2019 with the aim of promoting business and investment links through highly talented Indonesian professionals and executives overseas— a true partner for Indonesia’s economic diplomacy.

As part of this effort, we run initiatives to:
Support the transition of Indonesian students to professionals and professionals to executives overseas
Represent common concerns/pain points of Indonesian professionals and executives abroad through the production of strategic bi-annual white papers
Facilitate business and investment links to encourage the flow of foreign investments into Indonesia
Since our initiation, we now represent 2500+ Indonesian professionals
and executives working across G20 and ASEAN countries.
