BANDUNG - Chairman of Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) Faction of DPRD of West Java Nur Supriyanton said that the party welcomes King Salman's visit to Indonesia.
He said that as a country with the world's largest Muslim population, Indonesia might get the Government of Saudi Arabia to pay more attention to Indonesia. It is because Indonesia has greatly contributed to the Saudi's national revenue as the biggest sender of hajj pilgrims.
"We welcome the visit of His Majesty and his entourage. Indonesia as the country with the world's largest Muslim population deserves special attention from the Government of Saudi," he said to the reporters in Bandung, Monday (03/06/2017)
He argued that it is very natural for Indonesia to become an investment destination for the Government of Saudi Arabia as Indonesia has a very large market.
"It's normal if Indonesia becomes an investment goal of the Saudi due to our large market," he said.
The party expects the relation between Indonesia and Saudi Arabia to be stronger especially in terms economic relations.
"Citizens of Indonesia would like to thank the Governments of Indonesia and Saudi for the bilateral relations which can increase the economic growth of Indonesia," he said. (MAT)
