EU-Indonesia Cooperation Publication 2020
EU-Indonesia reaffirm commitment to Green Growth
The Minister for National Development Planning/ Head of Bappenas of the Republic of Indonesia Suharso Monoarfa, together with the European Union (EU) Ambassador to Indonesia, H.E. Mr Vincent Piket, launched the EU-Indonesia Cooperation Publication 2020 in a virtual online event in Jakarta on Thursday (17/9).
Encapsulating efforts in advancing sustainable development to mitigating the impacts of climate change, the publication also highlights key achievements of the EU and its Member States’ development programmes with Indonesia.
“We are aware that the post-pandemic-economic recovery period would be challenging, especially on how to keep the economic recovery efforts still on the sustainable development track. The sustainable environment is one of the national priorities and agenda that needs to be considered on all sector’s targets. We believe that efforts to pursue quality economic growth can only be obtained if, at the same time, we also preserve the environment,” Minister Monoarfa said via video conference.
“The coronavirus pandemic is the most abrupt and biggest social and economic shock of our generation, affecting all societies globally. As “Team Europe”, the EU and its Member States are determined to cooperate with Indonesia to face the crisis. Through joint efforts, we can overcome the health crisis and ensure a green and sustainable recovery,” said H.E. Vincent Piket, EU Ambassador to Indonesia.
