About Jakarta

Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia. Different from most capital cities around the world, Jakarta is not only the centre of government administration, but also the centre of trade and culture in the country. For that particular reason, Jakarta has attracted people across the country with various ethnicities. Regarded as one of the most populous city in the world, Jakarta is dense with skyscrapers and modern shopping centres, while maintaining its edgy culture and tradition. Its diversity has led Jakarta to be nicknamed as The Big Durian, equivalent to that of New York’s Big Apple. 

Celebrate the multicultural experience of Jakarta by attending the Indonesian Biotechnology Conference in 2020.
