The Council is headed by General (ret) Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, a former Minister of Industry and Trade (2000-2001). Mr. Didie Soewondho, Deputy Chairperson of KADIN is appointed the Council’s Executive Director and is in charge of communication with the Russian Council. There in 2009 during the session of the Russian-Indonesian Joint Commission in Jakarta an MOU on cooperation between to two councils was signed.

One of the main forms of reciprocity between the business councils is annual joint sessions held in the framework of Russia-Indonesia business forums normally matched with sessions of Russian-Indonesian Joint Commission on Trade, Economic and Technical Cooperation. Yet working meetings of the national councils senior management (President and VP) are to be held during the gaps between the sessions.
