Bosowa chief executive officer Erwin Aksa Mahmud said the company chose to use only internal fund to finance its business plan this year.

The company also decides not to pursue program of cooperation with other investors for business expansion, Erwin said yesterday.

The company earlier discussed business cooperation with The Siam Cement Co. Ltd from Thailand, YTL Corporation Berhad from Malaysia and Lafarge, the newspaper Bisnis Indonesia said.
