BOGOR — Visiting Premier Li Keqiang said that China would increase its agricultural imports from Indonesia and enhance cooperation on Indonesia’s building of comprehensive economic corridors.

In a brief short statement made at the joint news conference after talks with Indonesian President Joko Widodo on May 7, Premier Li noted that more Indonesian tropical agricultural products, including cubilose, coffee and tropical fruits, would enter the Chinese market, adding that Indonesian agricultural products enjoy high competitiveness in the Chinese market.

He also expressed China’s willingness to further cooperate with the Indonesian side on the building of its comprehensive economic corridors.

More Chinese experts and entrepreneurs would be invited for bilateral cooperation in such key areas as ports, maritime economy, industrial processing and overseas warehouses, according to Premier Li.

Joko promised to provide a more convenient business environment for Chinese enterprises’ localization and investment in the Indonesian market.

Premier Li’s official visit to Indonesia started on May 6, which is the first stop on his first overseas trip since the new cabinet took office in March.
