High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell to visit Indonesia and ASEAN

From Tuesday 1 to Friday 4 June, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Josep Borrell will visit Indonesia. He will hold discussions with the Indonesian government and will have meetings at the headquarters of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The visit demonstrates the EU’s wish to deepen relations with Indonesia, one of the world’s largest democracies and economies, which will hold the G20 Presidency in 2022 and the ASEAN Chairmanship in 2023. The visit also comes in light of the upgrade of EU-ASEAN relations to a Strategic Partnership, the recent adoption of Council Conclusions on an EU Strategy for Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific, and ongoing efforts to address the military coup and the ensuing political crisis in Myanmar.
