Chief of the Presidential Staff (KSP) Moeldoko has encouraged electric vehicle manufacturers from Vietnam and Indonesia to collaborate in developing electric vehicles.
Moeldoko made the statement during his online meeting with Vietnamese Ambassador to Indonesia Ta Van Thong at the Bina Graha Building, Jakarta on Tuesday.
“Indonesia and Vietnam share a very good and strong relationship, as seen by the bilateral trade between the two countries that has reached more than US$10 billion.
I hope that this strategic cooperation would continue to be strengthened in other sectors,” Moeldoko noted in a press release received here Tuesday.
He invited Vietnam to collaborate with Indonesia to develop an electric vehicle ecosystem for both the domestic market and the Southeast Asian region.
Currently, Vietnam has become one of the countries in Southeast Asia with a rapidly growing electric car industry.
