Jakarta – Indonesia’s Ambassador to Namibia, Wisnu Edi Pratignyo, hopes to strengthen co-operation between Jakarta and Windhoek, especially in the economic sector, as diplomatic ties between the two countries enter their 30th year.
"I hope that during my tenure in Namibia, the relationship between Indonesia and Namibia will be stronger and more agreements and co-operation will be established," he said at a media briefing in Windhoek on January 13, 2021, according to a statement released by the Indonesian Embassy in Windhoek on Thursday.
Although Indonesia established diplomatic relations with Namibia on May 13, 1991, the relations between the two countries date back to 1955, and Indonesia even participated in helping Namibia fight for its independence at the United Nations, Ambassador Pratignyo pointed out.
In the past three decades, Indonesia and Namibia have agreed on several areas of economic co-operation, including in trade, investment, tourism and agriculture, he noted.
“The relationship between the two countries has become significantly closer after President Hage Geingob's State Visit to Indonesia in 2018, which, among others, resulted in the signing of the MoU on Maritime and Fisheries Co-operation and between the Chambers of Commerce and Industry,” he said.
The Indonesian Embassy in Windhoek has also established communication with Namibian businesses as part of an effort to increase economic and trade cooperation between the two countries. For example, it held a recent meeting with Namibian importers and introduced palm oil products and their derivatives. - Antara News
