China is willing to further align its development strategy with Indonesia, enhance the Belt and Road cooperation, and create high-standard and sustainable cooperative projects for the well-being of both nations. 

This statement was made by Chinese Premier Li Qiang during his meeting with Indonesian Vice President Ma’ruf Amin, who was on an official visit to Nanning, the capital of China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

During their meeting, Li Qiang called on both sides to strengthen political mutual trust, firmly support each other, engage in high-level strategic cooperation, and continuously improve the quality, level, and effectiveness of building a bilateral community.

China also expressed its readiness to strengthen multilateral cooperation with Indonesia, uphold the unity and centrality of ASEAN, and maintain the correct direction of East Asian cooperation. This will contribute more stability and positive energy to regional and global development.

Vice President Ma’ruf Amin expressed Indonesia’s readiness to deepen bilateral economic cooperation and enhance coordination and mutual support in regional and multilateral affairs.

China has been ASEAN’s largest trading partner for 14 consecutive years, and both sides have been each other’s largest trading partners for three consecutive years. 

Trade between China and ASEAN countries in 2022 exceeded US$ 970 billion, reflecting the deepening economic relationship between the two sides.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning stated that through this exhibition, China aims to work with all parties involved to explore opportunities, address challenges, enhance cooperation, promote the high-quality implementation of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), advance trade and investment liberalization, improve regional connectivity, and build an open regional economy.
