Indonesia Encourages Cooperation on Maritime Products
AACC2015, Jakarta – Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs, Indroyono Susilo said on Tuesday that Indonesia encourages cooperation in the management of maritime products.
“Not just raw materials, but also processed materials, so there is added value for the member countries,” Indroyono said during a press conference at the 2015 Asian African Business Summit (AABS), a side event of the commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the Asian-African Conference (AAC) at the Jakarta Convention Centre, on Tuesday (21/4).
He stated that the 2015 AABS is a great opportunity for Indonesia to strengthen cooperation negotiations in the maritime sector with various countries in attendance. “Indonesia will work closely to be the front guard to strengthen negotiations,” the Minister said.
The Indonesian government also invited the island states and countries of the Indian Ocean to join the 2015 AABS forum in order to support the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) documents, especially No. 14 regarding maritime and marine resources on the world stage.
“Currently, SDG documents are being finalised. The SDG documents are a continuation of the 2002–2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). These documents have been distributed worldwide,” the Minister said. (Translator: Muhardi)
