Indonesia was the 27th biggest exporting country in the world in 2010, moving up three places from a year before and supplanting Norway, Sweden and Poland, according to data released by the World Trade Organization (WTO).

“Indonesia obtained the achievement because we maintained the market position in China, Japan and Malaysia,” Trade Minister Mari Elka Pangestu said Monday.

Mari said Indonesia also increased its market position in Brazil, Russia, Turkey and the United States.

Indonesian exports to Russia enjoyed the largest increase, of 63 percent from US$640.70 million to $1.04 billion, according to ministry data.
