Indonesia`s gas supply policy

Japanese businessmen grouped in Nippon Keidanren (Kadin`s Japanese counterpart) have started to wonder about Indonesia`s gas supply policy after the Indonesian government prioritized the meeting its domestic needs, rather than exports to Japan. Chairman of Nippon Keidanren Fuji Mitarai told chairman of the Regional Representatives Council DPD) Ginandjar Kartasasmita about this development in Tokyo on Monday afternoon, when the two met at the Keidanren head office in Otemachi prefecture. Ginandjar is in Tokyo to hand President Susilo Bambang Yudhyono`s personal letter to Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, an old friend during the New Order administration. Indonesia and Japan are currently engaged in bargaining in the energy sector. And Vice President Jusuf Kalla when on a visit to Tokyo by the end of May this year, have also touched on this sector.
