The United Arab Emirates plans to invest $9.5 billion in aluminium smelters in Indonesia’s Kalimantan region, Indonesia’s ambassador to the UAE said on Wednesday.

“Emirates Aluminium will invest $4 billion in West Kalimantan to build an aluminium smelter and a power plant ... Ras Al Khaima Investment Authority will invest $5.5 billion in East Kalimantan to build an aluminium smelter, a power plant and a railway line related to the projects,” M. Wahid Supriyadi told reporters.

Earlier this month, Indonesia’s trade minister said India’s state-run National Aluminium Co Ltd will invest $4 billion in an aluminium smelter and power plant in Indonesia’s East Kalimantan province.
