Johannesburg - South Africa and Indonesia agreed to strengthen their bilateral relations to improve trade at the second session of the Joint Trade Committee held in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Tuesday, the department of trade and industry said.

Trade Minister Rob Davies and his counterpart Gita Wirjawan co-chaired the meeting, where market access and import regulation were discussed.

Davies said in a statement that emerging economies needed to work together to establish objectives.

"These will enable us to develop our economies, create employment for our people, and raise their living standards," he said.

South Africa could act as a gateway for foreign investors in Africa.

"We make a distinction between being gate keepers and gateway," Davies said.

"We do not try to say that any other player has got to relate to other countries on the African continent through us."
