Visit to Indonesia

At the end of this week, I will travel to Jakarta for meetings with His Excellency Mr Joko Widodo, President of the Republic of Indonesia.

By making my first overseas visit as Prime Minister to Indonesia, I want to make a clear statement about the importance of our relationship, and the commitment of my government to deepening our economic and security cooperation.

Australia and Indonesia share geography, deep historical ties, a vibrant contemporary relationship and a vision of a peaceful and prosperous region. Our close collaboration across economic, security and strategic domains makes both countries stronger, safer and more prosperous.

I look forward to working with Indonesia’s President to lay the foundation for the next stage of our bilateral partnership.
