"This inaugural export is the delivery of the first phase of the cooperation that has been agreed in the Indonesia Africa Infrastructure Dialogue which was also witnessed by President Joko Widodo," said Director of Marketing, Research & Development of PT Kimia Farma Tbk, Jasmine Karsono, Wednesday, May 25.
