Indonesia-South Korea Bilateral Relations Are Getting Stronger and More Solid
Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia Dr. (H.C.) Puan Maharani
is pleased with the stronger and solid Indonesia-South Korea bilateral relations that have been going on since 1968. The reason is, since November 2017, through the "Republic of Korea-Republic of Indonesia Joint Vision Statement for Co-Prosperity and Peace
", Indonesia's bilateral relations and cooperation with South Korea have entered a new chapter.
Not only that, the two country leaders agreed to upgrade the status of the partnership to a special strategic partnership and continued with the agreement of the Plan of Action for the Implementation of the Special Strategic Partnership
(2021-2025). "With a focus on cooperation on four areas, namely: defense and foreign relations, bilateral trade and infrastructure development, people-to-people exchanges, and regional and global cooperation," said Puan in a written statement received by the Parliamentary
team, Thursday (6/10/2022)
In addition, the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia appreciates the strengthening of cooperation between Indonesia and South Korea in the field of defense and security through The First RI-ROK Foreign and Defense Senior Officials Meeting. The cooperation is in the form of the defense equipment project of the KF-21 Boramae fighter aircraft and submarines.
"This includes capacity building for Indonesia's defense human resources," he continued. As for bilateral trade and infrastructure development, I appreciate the progress in several aspects, namely the IK-CEPA economic agreement to increase the pace of Indonesia's exports to South Korea, strategic investment cooperation in the electric car and battery industry and investment in the development of IKN reaching USD6.37 billion with 58 thousand workers.
"In 2020, it is a sign of the increasing synergy between Indonesia and South Korea with the signing of the first cooperation in the field of digital economy and Start-ups
of the Republic of Indonesia-South Korea in the era of the G20 Presidency of Indonesia," explained the PDI-Perjuangan Faction Politician.
Puan believes that the cooperation relationship between Indonesia and South Korea will be stronger, especially in the economic sector where the increasing trend of bilateral trade reached USD18 billion in 2021, an increase quite sharply from the previous year of USD13 billion. Moreover, the synergy between Indonesia and South Korea is increasingly solid and productive. He also encouraged the concrete implementation of the Indonesia-Korea Economic Partnership Agreement
"I invite the House of Representatives of South Korea to jointly support and encourage the two Governments to continue to develop bilateral cooperation for the common prosperity and welfare of the two countries," concluded Puan. (p/aha)
