First, an additional 10,000 Hajj quota. Second, Saudi Arabias plan to boost its investment in Indonesia, the President said in his introductory remarks before a limited meeting on the Follow-up of the President’s Visit to Saudi Arabia, at the Presidential Palace, Jakarta, Thursday (18/4).
According to the President, both aspects must be immediately followed up, particularly Saudi Arabias plan to boost investment in Indonesia. Saudi Arabia wants to make Indonesia a hub for its petrochemical industry in Southeast Asia, said the President. (RAH/JAY/ES)
