In the investment sector, President Jokowi welcomed the increase in investment by Italy in Indonesia including the inauguration of the two-wheel motor vehicles manufacturer Piaggio factory in the country last year.

The President also expressed his appreciation for Italy’s commitment to the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP) scheme, while expressing hope that the commitment can be realized in the near future.
