PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL British Prime Minister David Cameron arrived in Indonesia's capital of Jakarta for a 24-hour visit on Wednesday (April 11) to encourage trade and investment between the two countries. Cameron was greeted at Jakarta's Halim Perdanakusumah airport by Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa. The visiting delegation included Minister of Trade, Lord Green, Education Secretary Michael Gove and 35 business executives. Upon his arrival, Cameron visited a Garuda Indonesia Airbus A330 at Halim Perdanakusumah airport. Garuda Indonesia plans to buy 11 Airbus A330 passenger jets from European planemaker Airbus worth about $2.5 billion at list prices. The new jets would increase the number of long-haul A330s already delivered to Garuda or on order from the airline by two-thirds and would be powered by UK-supplied Rolls-Royce engines. Indonesia President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is scheduled to brief Cameron on the country's long-term economic development plan. Bilateral trade between Indonesia and the UK has risen by around 10 percent a year, topping US$2.89 billion in 2011, up from $2.63 billion in 2010, according to Indonesia's Trade Ministry. Cameron is the third prime minister to visit Indonesia following Margaret Thatcher's in 1985 and Tony Blair's visit in 2006, when Cameron was in Blair's entourage. Queen Elizabeth visited Indonesia in 1974, and members of the Royal Family have regularly visited the nation, most recently Prince Andrew, who came to Indonesia last year. Cameron will leave Indonesia for Malaysia on Thursday (April 12).
