    JAKARTA, Jan 13 (Reuters) - Indonesia's foreign minister on Wednesday urged China to remove trade barriers for the country's palm oil and other main export products in order to make trade between the two countries more balanced.

    Minister Retno Marsudi made the comments in a joint statement with the Chinese government's top diplomat, State Councillor Wang Yi.

    Wang said he supported Indonesia's plan to become a regional hub for the production of vaccines. (Reporting by Agustinus Beo Da Costa, Angie Teo, and Stanley Widianto; Editing by Ed Davies)
