Diposting pada 12 Juni 2024 oleh admin / Dilihat: 0 kali

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Trade Minister Zulkifli Hasan is trying to intensify trade cooperation between Indonesia and Turkey in several sectors, including defense equipment.

Hasan conveyed this hope during a bilateral meeting with Turkish Trade Minister Ömer Bolat, which took place on the sidelines of the Third Ministerial Meeting of the Trade Negotiations Committee (TNC) regarding the Trade Preference System – Organization of Islamic Cooperation (TPS-OIC), and the Informal Ministerial Meeting D -8 in Istanbul on Monday (June 10, 2024), local time.

“With Indonesia’s economic condition stable, economic growth above five percent, and controlled inflation, I am sure that cooperation with Turkey can be increased, especially in the field of defense and defense equipment,” said Hasan.

He noted that Türkiye excels in the defense field, and its defense companies are growing rapidly.

“In this way, Turkey can help supply defense equipment such as drones, frigates, helicopters and fighter planes to Indonesia,” he added.

He also said that Indonesia and Türkiye could increase cooperation in the construction sector through investment in the development of Indonesian cities.

Türkiye welcomes the opportunity to increase cooperation with Indonesia in the defense sector.

According to Hasan, Minister Bolat said several Turkish companies were ready to meet Indonesia’s needs, one of which was supplying Turkey’s flagship “ANKA” drone.

“Türkiye invited Indonesia to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) as a guarantee for investors,” he said.

Hasan said Turkey also hopes to increase the number of direct flights with Indonesia to increase business relations and tourist visits.

Apart from that, his party wants to realize halal certification cooperation, both in bilateral cooperation and under the OIC.

For this reason, Hasan pushed for the completion of the Indonesia-Türkiye Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IT-CEPA).

“Hopefully President-elect Prabowo can visit Turkey this year or next year and there will be concrete cooperation in the defense industry sector,” he said.
