EU relations with Indonesia (a G20 member) are strong, reflecting Indonesia's status as the country with the 4th largest population in the world and an economic giant, accounting for 35 % of ASEAN GDP. The EU and Indonesia share similar values on regional development, democracy, human rights and the environment.
The EU and Indonesia have entered into a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA). The PCA covers areas such as trade, environment, energy, education, science and technology, migration and counter-terrorism. Thriving trade links, democracy and human rights, action on climate change and terrorism at home and abroad and expanding people-to-people links are all key areas of focus. Both the EU and Indonesia have historically been committed to peace and stability in the country, one notable feature being the EU's support for the Aceh peace process.
