A number of Chinese companies in Indonesia are pooling up money to help mark the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Around 150-thousand yuan worth of goods have been dolled out to local Muslim communities in the suburbs of Jakarta.

Jin Hongyue, cultural attache to the Chinese embassy in Jakarta, says the donations should be viewed as a symbol of China's support for the people and culture of Indonesia.

"I think it is very meaningful that our Chinese-funded companies made donations on the eve of Ramadan's conclusion. China and Indonesia are very active in trade. But these donations are a sign that Chinese companies in Indonesia respect the Muslim holiday, and want to bring our two peoples closer together. I think it is very commendable."

Ramadan, the 9th month of the Islamic calendar, calls on all Muslims to fast during daylight hours.

It's conclusion, which falls on Tuesday, is a major celebration, which often includes large-scale banquets and other activities.
