Indonesia Offers Investment Opportunities to Russia

Beijing (ANTARA News) — Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo offered investment opportunities to Russia at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit here on Monday.

“We have invited investors from Russia to invest in the sectors of energy, power plants, railways, irrigation, food, and manufacturing,” Jokowi said.

He stated that good relations between the two countries that have developed so far have to be further improved in the future.

Indonesia and Russia have been strategic partners since April 21, 2003, since they signed an agreement regarding the same in Moscow.

Since then, the two nations have developed cooperation in the fields of economy, trade and investment, including in heavy equipment and manufacturing satellite-based communication equipment. They have also cooperated in the development of security systems, information technology, and transportation.

Furthermore, while President Jokowi thanked Putin for sending his representative to his inauguration on October 20, President Putin congratulated his Indonesian counterpart for his election as the president for the next five years.

“I am convinced that relations between the two countries as strategic partners will further improve in the future,” he affirmed.

He added that the strategic Indonesia-Russia partnership has covered wider areas and “it is hoped they could be further developed and increased in the future.”
