JAKARTA, November 12. /TASS/. Russia is prepared to increase supplies of Sukhoi Superjet 100 medium-haul passenger airliners to Indonesia, the speaker of Russia’s upper house of parliament, the Federation Council, said on Wednesday.
Addressing Indonesia’s parliament, the People's Consultative Assembly (MPR), Valentina Matviyenko marked the high level of trade and economic relations between Russia and Indonesia.
“In 2013, trade turnover reached almost $3 billion. The leaders of our countries have set the goal of bringing this figure to $5 billion in the coming two years. This is a rather real level,” she said.
Matviyenko mentioned a range of major projects involving Russia in Indonesia, namely the construction of a railway road on Kalimantan Island to transport coal, which is due to be completed by 2016.
“A joint project on building an alumina refinery in Indonesia, being implemented by Rusal, is getting real shapes. An idea is studied to set up a facility for assembly of KAMAZ vehicles in Indonesia,” she added.
Matviyenko said a possibility of Russia’s participation in the construction of the Asian country’s first nuclear power plant involving Russia's state nuclear corporation Rosatom is being considered.
Russia’s upper house speaker also marked Russia’s interest in expanding imports of Indonesia’s fish and agricultural products and invited Indonesian investors to the country.
“We wait for the Indonesian business, capital and investments in Siberia and the Far East, where major projects are being implemented on developing this important Russian region,” she added.
