“Our talks included plans to build a car battery ecosystem, investment in the affordable New Renewable Energy (EBT) sector, and downstream opportunities for raw materials to enter the European and American markets,” he added.

Minister Lahadalia explained that Indonesia has enormous potential for raw materials to support the electric car battery industry and renewable energy.

The Indonesian government encourages the downstream of mineral resources that still prioritize environmentally friendly and towards the use of new renewable energy.

“We want to invite investors from outside to build industries here, the products are exported, and the environment is maintained. Also, we want to explain downstream that applies environmentally friendly principles to achieve net zero emission. How about using technology from the UK? We combine it with raw materials from Indonesia,” he explained.
