Indonesia and South Korea on Thursday signed business deals potentially worth 1.9 billion US dollars, covering transportation and other sectors.

The pacts came before a forum attended by visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in earlier in the day. At the forum, Moon said that his country wanted to boost economic ties with Indonesia.

Moon arrived here Wednesday on a three-day state visit. Indonesian President Joko Widodo welcomed his South Korean counterpart at a palace in a botanical garden near the country's capital on Thursday afternoon.
