According to Salman’s statistics, the value of Indonesia’s exports to Africa exceeded 10 billion US dollars per year (about 336 billion Taiwan dollars) from 2010 to 2014. The export value to Nigeria and South Africa, among them, grew more rapidly. Each year it grows by more than 10 percent.
Salman further pointed out that Indonesia’s economic growth slowed in 2015 due to the decline in global trade activities, but trade between Indonesia and Africa has risen considerably, and the African market should be taken seriously. He said: “We will increase our products that have been exported to Africa and will continue to encourage growth.
