Denis Manturov stressed that, particularly in today's complex geopolitical environment, Russia will continue to work to support trade flows from the Asia Pacific region. “Indonesia is one of our key partners, not only in the Asia Pacific region, but internationally as a whole. Bilateral trade and economic cooperation is a crucial part of the relations between our two countries. It is important to note that, from industry's perspective, our two countries are not in competition, they complement each other,” he said.
