Commenting on the newly established China (Guangxi) Pilot Free Trade Zone, Simandjuntak said that Indonesia should use the opportunity created by the Free Trade Zone to study how to enter the Chinese market. "The establishment of the Free Trade Zone is definitely good news. We should encourage free trade and enhance the efficiency of Indonesia's entire trade process. We should do what needs to be done as it is the only way by which we can develop the Belt and Road initiative together."

Referring to cooperation on creative economy, Simandjuntak also said frankly that Indonesia's creative industries are still exploring a business model suitable for the Chinese market. "The creative economy has unlimited potential, but cooperation cannot be one-way. I hope that the China-ASEAN Expo can help Indonesia and China strengthen cultural exchanges, in a move to develop creative products that can represent the cultures of the two countries, giving birth to new trends in creativity. Only when the cultures of the two countries are a feature of such products, can they be welcomed in both countries."
