The Parliaments of Indonesia and Poland have committed themselves to increase inter-parliamentary cooperation through the Poland-Indonesia Bilateral Cooperation Group (GKSB), according to GKSB Chair Danuta Pietraszewska.
The commitment was conveyed by Pietraszewska during a meeting with Indonesian Ambassador to Poland Siti Nugraha Mauludiah and seven members of the Polish parliament who participated in GKSB at the Indonesian Embassy in Warsaw on Wednesday (12/6), according to a statement from the Indonesian Embassy here on Thursday.
The Indonesian Ambassador praised the collaboration between the parliaments of Poland and Indonesia in recent years, through the exchange of parliamentary visits.
Ambassador Siti Nugraha also suggested that meetings between Indonesia's representatives and GKSB in Poland should be held every six months to discuss the latest developments in relations between both countries.
Pietraszewska said that many members of the Polish parliament expressed interest in joining GKSB.
Some 16 members of the Polish parliament have participated in GKSB.
One of the 16 members of the Polish parliament, who is a member in GKSB, is a politician from the ruling party and former deputy defence minister.
GKSB was established to strengthen cooperation between Poland and Indonesia, including in inter-parliamentary, trade, investment, higher education, culture, and tourism.
