Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
May prosperity be upon us all.
This morning we will discuss the preparation for state visits to South Korea and Vietnam.
This is a reciprocal visit for the visit of President Moon Jae-in back in 2017, and we hope to discuss concrete and real measures for the cooperation enhancement between Indonesia and South Korea.
We will strengthen cooperation in economic sector, notably investments in industrial sector. I think this is a strength that South Korea has, and it is also related to the strenght of relationship between young generations of Indonesia and (South) Korea.
Hence, I want the visit to be well-prepared, and we could bring concrete benefits for our national importance.
I conclude my remarks here. I invite Madam Minister to have the floor. (PR Division of Cabinet Secretariat)(AW/YM/Naster)
