An initiative such as this will help us meet our targets that much quicker. We welcome this project and look forward to working closely with Nokia Siemens Networks."

"We have been deploying and operating networks in Indonesia for over 20 years, and have witnessed the rapid transformation of the country's ICT industry during that time," said Christian Fredrikson, head of APAC, Nokia Siemens. "Today, we are pleased to announce that we are once again matching our belief in the country's growth potential with concrete plans that support our customers in the region, while improving local ICT skills and growing the industry."
