Jan '16
Indonesia wants to trade with Surat in the field of textiles, along with diamonds and tourism, Saur Siringoringo, counsel general, Indonesia has said, according to media reports.

The Indonesian government is working to create a direct connectivity between Bali and Delhi and Bali and Mumbai in order to promote bilateral trade between both the countries. Siringoringo is with Hariyanta Soetarto, consul (economics), and Siti Fatimah, vice-consul (economics), as part of the Indonesian delegation in Surat for the ongoing international industrial exhibition, Udyog 2016.

Fatimah said, “There is immense scope for Indonesian companies to export and import textiles and textile machineries and diamonds to the city. Tourism too has a great potential.”

The ASEAN-India free trade agreement (AIFTA) has provided a boost to the trade ties between India and Indonesia. The trade between both the nations has increased to $16.20 billion in 2014 compared to $4.79 billion in 2009. (HO)
