INDONESIAN ambassador Teuku Hamzah Thayeb visited Green Fuels in Stonehouse on Monday.
Stroud MP Neil Carmichael and Gloucester MP Richard Graham accompanied the ambassador to the green energy company in Oldends Lane during a tour of businesses in Gloucestershire with links to Indonesia.
The group was welcomed by Green Fuels managing director and owner James Hygate, who has seen the company grow since it was founded in 2003.
Green Fuels designs and makes biodiesel processors and exports around 90 per cent of their goods to markets such as Indonesia – which consumed 670 million litres of biodiesel in 2012.
Speaking during the visit Mr Carmichael said: "I am delighted to welcome the Indonesian Ambassador to Stroud today.
"Green Fuels is an excellent example of a local company exporting successfully around the world, not least to Indonesia, and I am very pleased that he can see the kind of engineering and manufacturing expertise which makes our district so distinctive."
