"The Indonesia-China Organization (LIC) is organizing the 12th conference which Indonesia will host for the second time after the third event was also held here in 2008," head of the LIC, Sudrajat, said at a press conference in Jakarta, Thursday.
The biennial event aims to promote people-to-people friendship between the ASEAN members and China, focusing on the economy, social, and cultural sectors, while highlighting development and the involvement of millennials, Sudrajat noted.
“We hope the conference results in a joint communique on what we will be doing in two to ten years,” he said.
Some 91 delegations of non-government organizations from 10 ASEAN members and China are expected to attend the conference, along with hundreds of investors and businessmen. Governor of West Java, Ridwan Kamil, is scheduled to open the conference.
