"The deals were struck during the Indonesia-China Business Forum and China Coal Import Summit," Indonesian Ambassador to China Djauhari Oratmangun stated in Beijing on Tuesday.
Coal imports dominated the contracts inked on the sidelines of the second China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai.
Furthermore, the contracts encompassed the imports of other products, including electronics, agriculture, food, beverages, plastic pellets, and mining products, the ambassador noted at the Indonesian Pavilion of the CIIE officially opened on November 5, 2019.
"Swallow nest products, recycled plastic pellets, oleochemical, coal, and food products are among Indonesian products liked most and well sold in Chinese markets," the former Indonesian ambassador to Russia remarked.
