Last year, the two heads of state reached important common understandings on jointly building a China-Indonesia community with a shared future, and bilateral relations have ushered in a new historical period.

Wang Yi pointed out that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the Belt and Road Initiative proposed by President Xi Jinping. Indonesia is where the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road initiative was first proposed, and China is ready to work with Indonesia with all-out efforts to ensure that Jakarta-Bandung High-speed Railway will be built and put into operation on schedule, actively promote projects of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Corridor and the "Two Countries, Twin Parks", and advance priorities of the Belt and Road cooperation between the two countries at the next stage. The two sides should strengthen cooperation in such fields as development financing, green economy, and food security, deepen cooperation on maritime affairs, and increase and improve bilateral economic, trade and investment cooperation. The two sides should also strengthen defense and law enforcement cooperation, and enhance personnel exchanges, to deepen strategic mutual trust and people-to-people friendship between the two countries.
Wang Yi said that the Global Civilization Initiative recently proposed by President Xi Jinping is another important public good that China provided for the international community. China is ready to strengthen inter-civilization exchanges and mutual learning with Indonesia, and encourage the governments, parties, parliaments, localities and non-governmental sectors of the two countries to play a positive role, so as to constantly enrich and improve the content and format of inter-civilization dialogue.
