    • Investing

In this conversation, we cover the business of Bukalapak, who they are, their valuation, and interestingly, the role of the Salim group in both Bukalapak and the wider ASEAN economy.
 
Joining me to discuss and dive deep into Bukalapak’s business is Aaron Pek, the author of Value Investing Substack, and not surprisingly, a Value Investor in ASEAN.
 
Super interesting and very valuable, I hope you enjoy this deep dive on Bukalapak with Aaron Pek.
