The Head of the EU Delegation to Indonesia and Brunei acts as an Ambassador in both countries.
The EU Delegation is involved in a range of activities with Indonesia and Brunei. Its main roles in both countries are to:
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Delegation of the European Union (EU) to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam. We are located in Jakarta and represent the EU in the Republic of Indonesia and to the Sultanate of Brunei Darussalam. This website is intended as a source of information and news on EU-Indonesia and EU-Brunei relations, as well as the EU's cooperation projects and activities. The website will give you the full picture. An average of 4,600 people visit our website each month.
Europe and Indonesia have long-standing relations that continue to deepen and enrich our respective societies. Over the past years, our relationship with Indonesia has become closer and stronger. Since 2014, the EU and Indonesia have been linked by a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement, which has been ratified by the respective Parliaments on both sides. Indonesia is the first ASEAN country to have signed up such a high level and comprehensive agreement with the EU which deepens our political relations and provides the legal basis for a broad range of bilateral dialogues.
The depth and breadth of our relationship was best illustrated by the official visit of the Indonesian President Joko Widodo to the EU Institutions on 21 April 2016; as well as the official visit of the EU High Representative/ Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini to Jakarta on 8-9 April 2016 as well as by the numerous visits of EU Commissioners to Indonesia and Indonesian ministers to the EU institutions.
Indonesia is a key partner of the EU as the fourth most populous country in the world with 265 millions inhabitants in 2017, the eight largest world economy in purchase price parity and a G20 member. The EU is the world’s number one economy and integrated trade actor, the biggest donor of aid and a major high-tech hub. The depth and the importance of Indonesia's relations with the EU can be well illustrated by the following facts:
The objective of the EU Delegation is to strengthen even further these relations in all fields, including on defence and security issues, through enhanced dialogues and contacts not only between governments and parliaments but also with civil society and more broadly by people to people contacts both with Indonesia and with Brunei. We work very closely with the embassies of the EU Member States present in Jakarta through coordinated action in many fields (political, economic, consular, cooperation, etc.). Illustrations of our EU projects in Indonesia are the annual "European Higher Education Fair" which attract close to 20,000 students and the "Europe on Screen Festival", which presented 93 films to 23,500 viewers in six Indonesian cities in 2018.
I invite you to visit our website regularly and hope that you will find the information you are looking for, including useful links to the activities of the EU. We look forward to your involvement and if you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us. Your feedback will be very welcome. You can follow our activities also on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube!
Thank you, Terima kasih.
