Indonesia to Iron Out Glitches on Detained Barges

Tuesday, June 26, 2007
According to reports, Indonesia is looking to iron out the glitches on the Singapore-bound granite barges that are still detained when trade officials from both countries meet on Tuesday.

But when contacted, the Economic Development Board (EDB) said its agenda for Tuesday's meeting would focus on the Riau Islands Special Economic Zone (SEZ). EDB added that it also plans to explore ways to improve efficiency and create a more attractive business environment in Indonesia. Last month, Indonesia released six of the 12 granite barges and tugboats, after their captains paid a fine of $2,219 (13 million rupiah) for committing minor maritime offences, such as failure to have legal papers and not having medical kits on board.
