East Timor looks to PT PAL for ships

East Timor looks to PT PAL for ships

Jakarta: Timor Leste Prime Minister Kay Rala Xanana Gusmao will explore the possibility of establishing maritime cooperation with Indonesia through his planned visit to the headquarters of the country's state shipbuilding firm PT PAL this weekend.
Xanana's spokesman Antonio Ramos told Antara on Wednesday that Timor Leste had made maritime development part of its strategic development plans for the 2011-2030 period.
"To realize the plan, we will develop cooperation in the shipbuilding sector with Indonesia, especially PT PAL," he said in Nusa Dua, Bali.
Antonio said Xanana, who is currently in Bali to attend the Bali Democracy Forum, was scheduled to visit PAL's headquarters in the East Java capital of Surabaya on Saturday.
He said the planned visit was also a follow-up to talks between Xanana and East Java Governor Soekarwo in Surabaya in October.
"We want to establish cooperation in agriculture, irrigation and maritime sectors." [09/12/10]
