Indonesia, China to Draft Infrastructure Cooperation Blueprint

Indonesia is set to start drafting a blueprint for infrastructure development cooperation with China, The Jakarta Post reports. Details of the plan will reportedly be discussed during the April 23-24 visit of Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao.

China will invest up to USD15 billion in member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and a significant portion of this is earmarked for Indonesia, said Hatta Radjasa, the country’s coordination minister for the economy, in a statement. 

Radjasa added that China is paying close attention to the development of Indonesia’s infrastructure, particularly the transport sector.
