Indonesia still keen on gaining nuclear power

Jakarta aims to acquire nuclear energy to aid economy, despite concerns following Fukushima incident.


    The nuclear crisis at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant has forced many countries to reconsider plans for nuclear energy, but Indonesia is not one of them.
    The government says it is continuing with plans to acquire nuclear energy as it needs more energy sources to support its growing economy.
