 May 30, 2018: PM Narendra Modi, who arrived on his first-ever official visit to Indonesia as a part of a 5 day visit to three East Asia nations, will meet President Joko Widodo on Wednesday to discuss bilateral cooperation in a broad range of areas, including maritime, trade and investment. He will also travel to Malaysia and Singapore to further booast India’s Act East Policy. 

The two leaders would attend some events, including a CEO Business Forum organized by the Indonesia Chamber of Commerce and the Industry, and the Confederation of Indian Industry. 

On Tuesday, PM Modi was accorded a ceremonial welcome on his arrival in Jakarta. “This is my first visit to Indonesia as Prime Minister. I am looking forward to my discussions with President Widodo on 30 May, as also to our joint interaction with the India-Indonesia CEOs Forum. I will also address the Indian community in Indonesia,” Modi said on the eve of his visit.

Expressing confidence that his visit will create synergy between the two countries, he said, “Both countries are multi-ethnic, multi-religious, plural and open societies. I am confident that my visit to Indonesia will create greater synergy between Asia’s two largest democracies and further elevate our bilateral ties.”

On May 31, on his way to Singapore, he will make a brief halt in Malaysia to congratulate the new Malaysian leadership and looks forward to meet Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

In Singapore, Prime Minister Modi will deliver the keynote address at Shangri-La Dialogue, an annual security meet, on June 1. “This will be the first time that an Indian Prime Minister would deliver this address. It would be an opportunity to articulate India’s point of view on regional security issues and maintenance of peace and stability in the region,” he said. Modi will also meet Singapore President Halimah Yacob and hold delegation level talks with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

On June 2, he will unveil a plaque at Clifford Pier, where Gandhiji’s ashes were immersed in sea on March 27, 1948. He would also visit some places of worship that have civilisational linkages with India.
