Russia and Indonesia are aiming to double their bilateral trade to $10 billion by 2018, Sergei Rossomakhov, Russia’s Trade Representative in Indonesia told Sputnik News.

“We are aiming at high figures of the trade turnover,” Rossomakhov told the news agency.

Indonesian food producers are keen to export to Russia, while Russian companies would like to supply Indonesia with machinery and technical products, and also set up joint manufacturing facilities, Rossomakhov said, according to the report.

A Russian business delegation will visit Indonesia soon to discuss cooperation in aerospace technology, shipbuilding, and mining projects, the news agency said.
