ISLAMABAD: The Ambassador of Indonesia to Pakistan, Adam M. Tugio Tuesday said since Indonesia is refined in the coal industry, it could provide coal for the power projects under the CPEC and to Large Scale Manufacturing Industries (LSMI) in Pakistan.

Indonesia currently exports 8.51 million tons of coal to the world market, accounting for 26 percent of the total global coal exports, he said.

The Indonesian envoy met with prominent businessmen in Lahore for promoting bilateral cooperation especially the Indonesian coals in Pakistan, said a press release issued here.

The meeting was attended by several businessmen from different sectors, such as textile industry, steel, ceramic and cement, all of which have the potential to import coal for their energy generators.

The Government of Pakistan has been paying special attention to the development of infrastructure and energy supply as it is one of the ‘Belt and Road’ Initiative countries, where coal is a major part of energy projects.
