Both countries also plan to develop the Masela gas block in Indonesia’s Maluku Province and Patimban port in West Java, Mr Widodo said after a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Indonesia’s presidential palace in Bogor.

Indonesia’s transport minister told Reuters in October that the government had invited Japan to submit proposals to work on a railway line connecting Jakarta to Surabaya.

Japan has historically been one of Indonesia’s biggest investors, but was dealt a blow in 2015 when the South-east Asian nation awarded China a high-speed train project linking Jakarta with the city of Bandung.
