"We will always be prepared to listen to the complaints faced by investors, and will strive to create a transparent and accountable business flow, and for polish companies currently operating in Indonesia to understand the flow of business in Indonesia to join local companies" explained Arcandra.

Deputy Minister of Energy of Poland, Grzegorz Tobiszowski, who is also the leader of the delegation, said his readiness to cooperate with the Indonesian government.
