During his working visit to Abu Dhabi on Monday, Pandjaitan remarked that hydroelectricity power plants will be developed in the provinces of North Kalimantan and Papua.
"We are optimistic that the UAE would partner with us to build renewable energy power plants in Indonesia," Pandjaitan noted in a statement received in Jakarta.
Apart from offering investment projects, Pandjaitan's working trip to Emirates also aims to prepare for the upcoming state visit of Indonesia's President Joko Widodo to the country in Jan 2020.
"I would like to make assurance that our plans to set up G-to-G (government to government) partnerships have been well-articulated with our counterparts in Emirates," Pandjaitan remarked.
During his upcoming state visit, Jokowi is scheduled to ink several memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with leaders of UAE in the fields of energy development, health, education, and sovereign wealth fund management.
On the similar occasion, both nations will also ink an MoU to support the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) to finance Indonesia's infrastructure projects.
