JAKARTA, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Indonesian Vice President Boediono met with co-chairman of the British government's Asia task force Lord Powell here on Tuesday, discussing Indonesia's progress on economy that may push more British investors to invest into the country, officials said.
Powell who is in charge of encouraging the British firms to invest in Asia, including Indonesia, may push more British firms to invest in the Southeast Asia's largest economy as the country' s investment climate has improved, said vice presidential spokesman Yopie Hidayat after the meeting.
Powell who last met with Boediono two years ago expressed his appreciation over Indonesia's economic progress over the past two years, said the spokesman.
Nevertheless, Powell warned over the risks of the uncertainty of the global economy. "We seem have to be cautious as the global economic crisis still persist,"said Yopie.
Indonesia's economy grew by 6.5 percent last year and is expected to grow at the same speed this year, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said in August.
