To implement the areas of cooperation that have been agreed upon, a number of activities will be carried out including information and experiences exchange, visits exchange between experts and specialists, work conferences and seminars, joint studies, and cooperation between energy companies.

“Besides, the two countries also agreed to develop a qualitative partnership to localize materials, products and services related to all sectors of the energy, supply chain and technology, as well as the development of the chemical industry,” Arifin explained.

As an initial follow-up to the MoU, a special working team consisting of representatives of both parties with the same number of members will be formed. The team aims to hold consultations on procedures and steps that need to be taken to strengthen and develop cooperation under the MoU.
