"We will invest in the electricity sector, in solar power and biogas power plants," he said as quoted by tribunnews.com on Sunday.
Aside from investment in the sustainable energy sector, Yang further said, a Taiwanese state-owned enterprise planned to build sugar mills in several cities in Java. "We are working on the study, we must meet with the [Indonesian] government officials to find the right locations”.
