"We are glad to take part as Senior Partner in the first edition of the High Level Dialogue on ASEAN Italy Economic Relations in Jakarta" - said Sergio Benocci, Co-Founder and Managing Director Europe & Asia of Building Energy - because we believe that Southeast Asia is an extremely interesting market for its great potential in the field of renewable energies. This is due to the wide availability of natural resources in the area, such as hydro, wind and solar. Southeast Asia is also one of the regions with the strongest growth rate for the coming years in the renewable sector and on which we intend to invest significantly. In particular, we have decided to enter the Southeast Asian market identifying in Vietnam and Indonesia the first target Countries for the development of solar and wind projects. This is why this summit is also an opportunity for us to get in touch with companies and professionals who already work in the area."
