Indonesia eyes more joint development with Japan: Widodo

Indonesian President Joko Widodo

JAKARTA -- Infrastructure development is one of Indonesia's top priorities, President Joko Widodo said Tuesday, singling out stronger cooperation with Japan as particularly important.

The Southeast Asian nation has a "long history with Japan," Widodo told The Nikkei in an interview. Accelerated efforts at joint development are likely intended to warm relations that have cooled slightly amid growing Chinese involvement in public works projects here.
