    Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesia recorded transactions worth US$4.74 billion at the China International Import Expo (CIIE) held in Shanghai, China, on Nov 5-10.

    Minister of Trade Enggartiasto Lukita noted in a written statement that the transaction revenue demonstrated the potential for an increase and expansion of Indonesian exports to China.

    "This (big transaction value) is preliminary evidence that Indonesian products have the potential to attract more Chinese consumers. I am certain this is just the beginning, as there will be more potential for future cooperation," Lukita noted on Saturday.

    The superior products that attracted Chinese importers comprised margarine, coal, plastic, coffee beans, swallow`s nest, palm oil and its derivatives in the form of oleo fatty acids and oleo chemical; and the potential for cooperation in the electronic commerce sector.

    According to Lukita, the government always strives to establish profitable cooperation with entrepreneurs in each partner country.

    "We always strive that at every working visit, the Indonesian government`s representatives not only meet with officials in the destination country but also with the entrepreneurs in order to have a business forum. We are grateful that in Shanghai there were so many participants attending the forum," the trade minister remarked.

    The Indonesia-China Business Forum and business matching, initiated by the Indonesian Ministry of Trade in collaboration with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) held on the sidelines of the CIIE, successfully attracted several Chinese entrepreneurs.

    Of some 300 participants attending the forum, some 190 were partners from China and 130 participants were from 54 Indonesian companies and agencies.

    Through the business forum, the Chinese entrepreneurs were introduced to the economic potential, strengthening infrastructure, wealth of natural resources, and human resources dealing with businesses owned by Indonesia.

    Good job. I think Asia has a lot potential for trade and such opportunities should be availed. If EU can protect European trade, why not Asians do the same to benefit themselves and not get exploited by non-Asians.

    :lol: what is it used for ?

    Jakarta (ANTARA News) - President Joko Widodo met with the President of the People`s Republic of China (PRC) Xi Jinping and discussed trade to the digital economy in a bilateral meeting held on the sidelines of the APEC Summit.

    The Deputy of Protocol, Press and Media of the Presidential Secretariat, Bey Machmudin, in a statement received in Jakarta on Saturday, said that the meeting was held at the Stanley Hotel, Port Moresby, Saturday evening.

    Starting the meeting, President Jokowi congratulated President Xi Jinping for the success of the PRC in holding an international export exhibition in Shanghai which took place recently.

    "I would like to congratulate you on the holding of The 1st China International Import Export Expo in Shanghai recently, where Indonesia became the `Country of Honor`," said President Jokowi.

    In addition, President Jokowi also appreciated the PRC for expressing sympathy and cooperation given in handling natural disasters in Lombok and Central Sulawesi.

    The two heads of state then discussed several matters related to the relations between the two countries. In the trade sector, the President hopes that the two countries can work together to overcome the Indonesia-China trade deficit through various means.

    These methods include the ease of export of tropical fruit from Indonesia to China, such as fresh pineapple, dragon fruit, avocado, rambutan, mango, banana and durian.

    "The ease of import of swallow nests from Indonesia," he continued.

    The President also hopes for the sustainability of palm oil exports and derivative products, including cooperation in developing biodiesel such as B5, B20 biofuels and replanting oil palm.

    In addition, President Jokowi wants China to not apply a quota or anti-dumping for Indonesian manufactured products such as steel.

    "I also hope that His Majesty can encourage Chinese tourists to visit Indonesia, especially to Bali and 10 new Bali," he added.

    The two Heads of State also discussed cooperation in the investment sector, including to develop industry 4.0.

    In this bilateral meeting, the President was accompanied by Maritime Affairs Coordinating Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi, Minister of State Pratikno.

    If its not haram to consume any parts of a bird, then birds nest is halal, because its made solely from the coagulatified saliva of a swallow

    Congratulations to the Indonesian companies for securing big value orders in China. In many cases, companies particularly small and medium ones are struggling to find customers but because their products are not attractive but because they don’t have the resources and connection to the market. The CIID is designed to provide such a venue where foreign enterprises can meet the Chinese buyers and showcase their best the products.

    China coal power station is the most efficient in the world. The amount of co2 produce is lesser than European standard. Coal power station are easy to setup compare to nuclear or natural gas. Even if nuclear fission is available, I can forsee, coal will still be used but in much limited amount.

    Swallows nest is a local delicacy (In China, The Koreas, and in Indonesia) that is sweet and very expensive. Literally edible birds nests.

    Swallow's Nest is a traditional Chinese dish.

    It is anti-oxidant and it allow smooth skin and also anti-aging.

    People eat swallow nest is not a nest make out of twigs and crap, it's made out of Solidified Swallow's Saliva, so basically, you are eating Swallow's Spits "Don't put Swallow's Spit on google tho, you've been warned"
