Brazil, Indonesia to Sign Strategic Partnership

The accord will provide for joint actions in areas such as biogenetics and biofuels.

Brazil and Indonesia are to sign a strategic partnership at the start of a three-day visit by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Nov. 17, Brazil's foreign ministry said.

The accord, to be inked in Brasilia, will open the way to joint actions in areas such as biogenetics, biofuels, the fight against hunger, and science and technology, the ministry said.

Yudhoyono will travel to Sao Paulo to see a factory run by Embraer, Brazil's plane-maker, and a biofuel plant.
