Done by : Lee Jeong Hoon ASEAN BUSINESS INDONESIA, CHINA SEAL ECONOMIC Presidential spokesman Dino P. Djalal told the press that Jakarta and Beijing had agreed to set up an investment promotion center to increase two-way investment between the countries. China also signed deals with Indonesia on four infrastructure projects: the construction of the Tuban refinery in East Java, the development of a 158-kilometer railway line connecting Cirebon in West Java and Kroya in Central Java, the construction of a power plant and the development of the Jatigede dam in West Java. The Tuban refinery, to be build by state oil and gas company Pertamina in cooperation with China Petroleum & Chemical Corp., would be Indonesia's 10th refinery. Indonesia currently has nine small and large refineries with a total processing capacity of close to one million barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil. The construction of the Tuban refinery is expected to begin next year at the latest. When it is completed, the refinery will have a processing capacity of between 150,000 bpd and 200,000 bpd. On the trade front, Dino said Jakarta and Beijing wanted to see two-way trade rise to US$30 billion by 2010, from $13 billion in 2004 and $10.2 billion in 2003. Indonesia's trade with China could soon surpass its trade with the United States, which reached $13.5 billion in 2003. Chinese exports to Indonesia include electrical machinery and equipment, electronics goods and home appliances, textiles and motorcycles. China's principal imports from Indonesia are mainly natural resources and resource-intensive goods like crude oil, natural gas, palm oil, paper, pulp and timber.
