Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer Haier says that it plans to open a mobile phone production factory in Indonesia later this year.

"They have set a target to begin the operation [of the factory] by the end of this year," the Industry Ministry's director general for high-technology priority industries Budi Darmadi said as quoted by Kontan.

The handset factory will be based at Haier's existing electronics production facility in West Java, and it is investing US$800,000 in the production line.

In addition to own-brand smartphones, it will produce phones for the Smartfren mobile network operator who will sell them as operator-branded handsets.

It's reported that Indonesia imported 60 million cellular phones in 2013.
