    “Indonesia is our key partner in Southeast Asia. We appreciate its role as the leader of ASEAN and we witness its growing positive activity on the world stage,” Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said after his meeting with Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi of the Republic of Indonesia.

    The agenda of the Friday consultations included Polish-Indonesian economic cooperation. Trade between the two countries exceeded USD 1 million in 2018, and continues to grow. “Poland has a lot to offer, specifically in the agri-food sector and in high-end technologies. The stage is set for cooperation in the maritime, defence, mining and electronics industries,” stressed Minister Czaputowicz. He went on to say that more and more Polish businesses invest in Indonesia.  

     

    Minister Czaputowicz recalled that in 2019, Poland and Indonesia are both members of the UN Security Council. “I am confident that our cooperation on the Security Council will help promote peace and security in the world,” he said. The ministers declared their willingness to forge closer relations in the areas of human rights and understanding between cultures and religions. “We have agreed that Indonesia will host the 4th round of Polish-Indonesian intercultural and interreligious dialogue next year,” said Minister Czaputowicz. He also mentioned that 2020 will mark the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Poland and Indonesia. To mark this occasion, a number of events will be held with Polish and Indonesian partners in attendance.
