TEMPO.CO, Nusa Dua - PT Penataran Angkatan Laut (PAL) Indonesia plans to export warships to countries in Southeast Asia and Africa in 2018 and 2019. The export income is expected to increase company revenues.
"We have already listed in the tenders of several Southeast Asian nations like Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, as well as several African countries,” PAL Indonesia president director Budiman saleh said after a meeting of SOEs in Nusa Dua, Bali, on Friday, Feb. 9.
The company is waiting for the tender results at the end of 2018.
During the meeting in Nusa Dua, SOE Minister Rini Soemarno conveyed her wishes for PT PAL Indonesia to be the best warship producer among ASEAN members. She hopes the same for aircraft manufacturer PT Dirgantara Indonesia.
This year, PT PAL is targeting a sales value of Rp2.4 trillion, doubling last year’s post of Rp1.2 trillion.
