RI Invites Russia to Invest in Tourism
JAKARTA – Indonesia Government invited the Russian Government to broaden their investment in Indonesia. This was said by Minister of National Development Planning/Head of National Development Planning Board Bambang Brodjonegoro in Indonesia-Russia Business Forum held by the Embassy of Moskow in Indonesia at World Trade Center (WTC), Jakarta.
According to Bambang, tourism and infrastructure sectors become the key in partnership between Indonesia and Russia. “Through this partnership, we hope that we can improve export and import numbers between both countries, to face the current economic challenge that caused by The Fed’s interest rate increase,” he said on his written statement, reported by KONTAN.CO.ID (8/7).
Currently, Russia is doing investment for about 90% in Indonesia in tertiary sectors such as hotel, restaurant, and trading. Those investments mostly placed in Bali and Nusa Tenggara. Bambang hoped that Russia could get the information that now Indonesia is exploring investment opportunities in special economic areas, ports, and the New 10 Bali development.
