Dear Mr. President,
I am very pleased to visit your beautiful country. Let me congratulate you again on the presidency of the G20 group in 2022, it was very successful. And, I wish you success for ASEAN presidency this year.
Indonesia is a very important partner for the Czech and the EU. ASEAN countries share the same values with us. Each ASEAN country is different but they are united in diversity. And, you work on the stability and prosperity of your region, same as the European Union. Our economic cooperation is growing and it is very important now. Our import from Indonesia was USD637 million last year.
Ladies and gentlemen,
With Mr. President today, we discussed our successful cooperation and I believe that we found new areas, new fields where we can cooperate more. I have representatives of Czech companies here with me. They would like to start or expand their business with partners from your country. Our traditional export to Indonesia is energy sector equipment, medical devices, and aviation products, but we have many other opportunities. We can bring more Czech products to Indonesian market. We can increase investment in Indonesia.
I am also glad that Indonesia is our strong partner in security and defense. I appreciate that Czech defense companies deliver products to Indonesia, these include L 410 NG aircraft. We are also interested in modernizing the Indonesian army. I am happy that we already have success for joint ventures and technical cooperation. I hope that we can cooperate more in security, defense, and cyber security.
As proof of great cooperation, it was mentioned that it will be signed the letter of intent of cooperation between Ministry of Transport of our country and also agreement on defense cooperation between Czech and Indonesia, and much more.
We also discussed the project of the new capital city in Kalimantan, the project is really ambitious. I am looking forward to seeing the presentation of it soon. Czech companies have interest in the project. Some of them are on this visit with me. They can provide smart and green technologies for example. Our goal is also deeper cooperation in the protection of the environment between our ministries, but also on academic, scientific and business levels.
Dear Mr. President,
I believe that our meeting will make the connection between our countries stronger. I am looking forward to seeing you in the future again. Thank you very much. Thank you very much.
