Indonesia and China have agreed on the establishment of a working committee reflecting China’s support of Indonesia’s 2011-2025 Master Plan for the Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesian Economic Development (MP3EI).

“The agreement was made when Coordinating Minister for the Economy Hatta Rajasa, a special envoy to the Indonesian president, met with Prime Minister Wen Jiabao in Beijing,” the Indonesian Embassy in Beijing said in a press release on Thursday, referring to a meeting on Wednesday.

The statement said Hatta was accompanied by Indonesian Trade Minister Mari Elka Pangestu and Indonesian Ambassador to China and Mongolia Imron Cotan, among others.

It also said Hatta explained to Wen the MP3EI concept and its key position in Indonesia’s economic development policy for the year 2011-2025.

Hatta expressed hope that China will take part in the implementation of the master plan, which has been apparently welcomed by Wen, Antara news agency reported.
