JAKARTA, NNC - Working Group on Energy of the Republic of Indonesia and Russia was held again in Russia. The second Working Group event was held in conjunction with the 12th Indonesian and Russian Joint Commission (SKB) Session, in Moscow, Russia, on October 24-26, 2018.
In the working group Indonesian delegation for the energy and mineral resources (EMR) sector led by the Secretary of the Research and Development Agency at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Sujatmiko offered Russia to invest in the EMR sector, because according to Sujatmiko, the energy sector investment is still very promising and the investment climate in Indonesia is now better and more friendly for investors.

The Indonesian government is also currently encouraging the use of renewable energy mainly from solar power and bio energy. It is hoped that Russia can become a reliable cooperation partner for Indonesia and cooperation that has been established can develop in the future," said Sujatmiko, Friday (10/26/2018).
In the electricity subsector, Sujatmiko added, Russian investors can invest and cooperate in building power plants and improving existing projects.
