Indonesian state-controlled pharmaceutical company Kimia Farma will construct Indonesia's first pharmaceutical salt factory in Jombang (East Java) in an attempt to supply the domestic market and curb imports of this type of salt. Minister of State-Owned Enterprises Dahlan Iskan said that the plant can commence operations near the end of 2014 and will have an annual production capacity of 2,000 tons of pharmaceutical salt (approximately two thirds of domestic demand).
