Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Todays limited meeting will follow up the results of the Governments state visit to Saudi Arabia. Firstly, regarding the addition to Indonesia’s Hajj quota up to 10,000. Secondly, regarding the Saudis intention to increase their investment in Indonesia.
Both results must be followed up immediately to finalize responds of the Government of Saudi, particularly on the intention to invest in Indonesia. As I had mentioned yesterday, Saudi wants to establish a cooperation with Indonesia and makes our country a hub for petrochemical industry in Southeast Asia.
I think we have to make decision immediately and follow up the results.(PR of Cabinet Secretariat)(RAS/AW/YM/Naster)
