Jakarta, 30 September 2016 – Welcoming the upcoming National Batik Day, Grab announced GrabBatik, a special program from the Southeast Asia’s leading ride-hailing platform, to show utmost appreciation to Indonesian and local heritage. Through GrabBatik, Grab brings a series of exciting events for both Grab’s partners and passengers.

“Batik, as the Indonesian cultural icon, is an integral part of Indonesian life. As the nation celebrates National Batik Day, Grab wants to take the opportunity to showcase our gratitude to our partners and passengers. Through GrabBatik, Grab will hand out 300 pairs of Batik shirt to GrabBike bikers and their partners, who have been supporting Grab ever since we first entered the market. Grab strongly believes that it takes a huge effort from numerous parties, for Grab to be the leading ride-hailing platform in Indonesia at this moment, and Grab’s partners are substantial components of it,” said Mediko Azwar, Marketing Director, Grab Indonesia.
