Indonesia intends to increase food supplies to Russia

Indonesia is considering increasing exports to Russia of food products, including fruits and seafood, the press service of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation said after the meeting of the head of the ministry Alexei Ulyukayev with the Indonesian trade minister Rahmat Gobel.

Russia in August banned the export of a number of food products from countries that imposed sanctions against Moscow for a year. According to the authorities, this will help domestic farmers to strengthen their presence in the market. Many states that did not introduce a sanction regime against the Russian Federation also announced their intention to increase the supply of food to our country.

Opening the meeting, Ulyukaev noted that for the period from 2009 the trade turnover between Russia and Indonesia increased more than 3 times and in 2013 amounted to almost 3 billion dollars. However, Russia and Indonesia have set themselves the task of increasing the volume of bilateral trade in the next two years from 3 to 5 billion.

"Indonesia is considering expanding the supply of fresh and canned fruits, fish products and seafood to the Russian market," the ministry said.

The ministers also discussed a number of projects of Russian-Indonesian cooperation, including the creation by Russian Railways by 2016 of a transport infrastructure for transporting coal to the island of Kalimantan, the construction of a bauxite-alumina complex in West Kalimantan, the creation of a monitoring system for the 200-mile exclusive economic zone of the Republic of Indonesia , as well as satellite broadcasting based on technologies and under the management of a Russian holding.
