JAKARTA (The Jakarta Post/ANN): Three Indonesian ministers sent off a ship carrying Rp9.9 billion (US$686,113.47) worth of swiftlet’s nests to China last week as part of Indonesia’s efforts to boost exports of the product to the world’s second-largest economy.

Agriculture Minister Syahrul Yasin Limpo, one of the three ministers present, said the government would focus particularly on promoting swiftlet’s nest exports because China did not have an import quota on the product.
