Indonesia’s Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi, has encouraged firms from Denmark and Norway to join forces in building a sustainable marine infrastructure in Indonesia.
On 28 November, Budi Karya Sumadi has issued a financing team focusing on investments in the transportation sector.
“Denmark and Norway are home to the world’s leading shipping companies. Therefore, we encourage them to develop the Malacca Strait and invest in marine navigation,” said Budi Karya Sumadi.
