Indonesia will host an international conference on forest restoration on Monday, the country's largest news portal quoted an official as saying on Sunday.

The International Conference on Forest Restoration for People, Biodiversity and Environmental Service will be conducted by the Forestry Ministry in cooperation with the Environmental Leadership and Training Initiative (ELTI) and the Agriculture Institute of Bogor.

"The conference will be attended by more than 300 participants from 10 countries, the U.S., the Philippines, Indonesia, Britain, Australia, Costa Rica, Germany, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, and Singapore, " said Head of Public Relation at the ministry Masyhud.

The conference will also promote Indonesia's genuine flora and fauna.

Masyhud also said that Singapore was invited as the country still has natural forest of 3,043 hectares in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. The country does not "interrupt" the area even though its development is very fast.
