JAKARTA, KOMPAS.TV – The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves), Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, asked not to look down on China.
The reason, he said, is currently China has entered the category of high-class countries that have various advantages in the world.

“So, we ourselves sometimes feel that China is a second-class (country) but not. Because it has entered the high end now,” Luhut said in a virtual press conference, quoted from Kompas.com on Wednesday (16 /6/2021).
One of China’s advantages, according to Luhut, is in the health sector. Because, China is the largest producer of medicines in the world which are often consumed by the people of Indonesia.
Therefore, Luhut then asked that the intimacy between Indonesia and China should not be questioned.
