Letter of congratulations from the President of the European Council Donald Tusk and the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker to Joko Widodo on his re-election as President of the Republic of Indonesia
On behalf of the European Union, we would like to congratulate you warmly on your recent re‑election as President of the Republic of Indonesia.
Indonesia is a key political, economic and trade partner of the European Union. As two of the world's largest democracies, we look forward to deepening this partnership further. An ambitious Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement between the European and Indonesia would be a major step in increasing the prosperity of our people.
We wish you and your government every success and look forward to continuing to work with you bilaterally but also within ASEAN, ASEM, G20 and the United Nations building on our commitment to multilateralism and the rules-based international order.
