“Palestine holds a special place in the hearts of the Indonesian people, Anies Baswedan stated”
GETNEWS.ID, Jakarta – Governor of Jakarta Anies Baswedan received a visit from Palestinian Ambassador to Indonesia Zuhair Al Shun and his delegation at the City Hall, here, on Monday.
The visit was aimed at exploring cooperation in the economic field between Palestine and the capital city of Indonesia.
“I hope that the relations between Indonesia and Palestine would become closer through trade ties between the two countries. As we have already established people-to-people ties and diplomatic relations, business-to-business ties remain to be intensified,” Baswedan remarked, adding that Palestine holds a special place in the hearts of Indonesian people.
By forging mutual cooperation in business, Palestine will have an opportunity to introduce its products — dates, olive oil, and baklava — to Jakarta’s residents.
The governor invited Palestine to participate in a people’s bazaar to be organized along Sudirman-MH Thamrin Boulevards, Jakarta, in September this year.
The governor vowed to provide facilities, such as information and business permits, required by Palestinian businessmen to market their products.
