Ireland and South Africa are likely to explore unexploited prospects in business in Indonesia, due to the country's strong economic growth in the recent past. As reported by the Jakarta Post, Brendan Howlin, the Irish minister for public expenditure and reform, stated that Ireland is likely to focus on the nation for trade and investment cooperation, since it has gained acknowledgment for its increasing economic importance. The non-oil and gas exports to South Africa grew 16.72% y/y registering USD 236.4mn last year, while the bilateral trade with Ireland increased 16% y/y registering USD 209.5mn.
