Governor Vyacheslav Shport discussed prospects for cooperation between Khabarovsk Krai and the Republic of Indonesia

An official visit to the Republic of Indonesia of the Russian delegation headed by the Chairman of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Valentina Matvienko has come to an end, the press service of the Governor and Government of the Khabarovsk Territory reported.

Governor Vyacheslav Shport, who visited the Republic of Indonesia as part of an official delegation, discussed prospects for cooperation between the Khabarovsk Territory and the Republic of Indonesia.

Governor Vyacheslav Shport noted that the Khabarovsk Territory is ready to establish stronger ties with Indonesia. So far, this country is not one of the major foreign trade partners of the region. Nonetheless, the region is well known to Indonesian aircraft specialists. The Komsomolsk Aviation Enterprise, within the framework of a state contract, collected and delivered to this country a batch of Sukhoi combat aircraft. In addition, in 2010, a contract was signed between CJSC Sukhoi Civil Aircraft and the Indonesian regional air carrier Kartika Airlines for the supply of 30 Russian Sukhoi Superjet-100 aircraft, which will also be assembled in Komsomolsk.

During the meetings of the governor of the region with representatives of the government and business of Indonesia, promising areas of cooperation were discussed, including the joint development of port infrastructure in the Vanino and Soviet-Havana regions, the implementation of projects for processing agricultural products and fish, and the development of trade contacts.

In Jakarta, meetings and talks were held with the Chairman of the Council of Representatives of the Regions of the Republic, Irman Gusman, the Chairman of the Council of People's Representatives, Mr. Netoyo and the Vice-President of Indonesia, Muhammad Yusuf Kalla.

The meetings focused on increasing the pace of economic cooperation with the Republic, in particular, in the sphere of mutual trade and tourism. It was noted that from January 1, Indonesia 2015 cancels visas for Russians.

"This will undoubtedly contribute to a significant influx of Russian tourists to Indonesia, the interest in which is growing more and more. Last year alone, 100 Russians visited Indonesian resorts," Valentina Matvienko said.

The talks also dealt with the launch of direct flights between Moscow and Jakarta, as well as about increasing military-technical cooperation.
