Japan eyes stable energy supply with Indonesia pact
Resource-poor Japan is the world’s largest importer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and Indonesia is its number one supplier, as well as the second-biggest provider of coal to Tokyo and sixth for crude oil.
An Indonesian official said last month that Jakarta hoped to boost its non-oil and gas exports to Japan to $20 billion in 2010, up from $11 billion in 2006. Indonesia imported about $8.65 billion of goods from Japan in 2005, Japanese government data showed.
