Southeast Asia, with open countries, welcomes foreign investments very much. Indonesia, as a member of ASEAN,also has a development plan in accordance with China's "Belt and Road" initiative. The strategy of the “Belt and Road” initiative will bring enormous amount of investments and expertise to ASEAN, meet ASEAN's needs in time and drive ASEAN to become a new engine for global economic growth. During future development, China will cooperate with Indonesia on many fronts. We are looking forward to further cooperating with CMIG in many other projects in Indonesia.

As a rather special investment company, CMIG is playing an increasingly significant role in the "going global" of Chinese private economy. In addition, as ASEAN's largest economy,Indonesia also welcomes Chinese capital to be invested in Indonesian development projects in the future.
