BEIJING — State Councilor Wang Yong will visit Indonesia from Jan 20 to 22, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei said on Jan 20 at a regular press briefing.
Wang will meet Indonesian President Joko Widodo and they will attend the groundbreaking ceremony for a high-speed railway (HSR) that will link Jakarta with the provincial capital of West Java, Bandung.
“This will be the first HSR in Indonesia,” Hong said, adding that the project will promote bilateral pragmatic cooperation and comprehensive strategic partnerships.
In October, China and Indonesia signed a joint-venture agreement on the construction and operation of the HSR. The Indonesian side will control 60 percent of the joint venture.
