"From the start, Indonesia has been strongly committed, so that the G20 can produce tangible achievements in three priority sectors of global health architecture, digital transformation, and energy transition," Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno L. P. Marsudi noted in a statement received in Tuesday.
Marsudi delivered the statement during the Indonesia-Singapore Business Forum.
In the context of these priorities, Indonesia and Singapore have sufficient capital to support their achievements through various collaborations.
The minister noted that in the midst of the current recovery efforts, the world is facing various challenges, including the conflict in Ukraine, the decline in global growth rates, and problems related to poverty, energy, and food supply.
The G-20 is expected to overcome these problems, she remarked.
On the occasion, the minister also lauded the various forms of support from the Singapore Government for Indonesia’s G20 Presidency.
Meanwhile, Indonesian Ambassador to Singapore Suryo Pratomo encouraged various parties to work together to make Indonesia’s G20 Presidency a success in 2022.
He affirmed that the promotion of Indonesia’s G20 Presidency in Singapore was important, as the country was a hub with various global companies and had a representative office in Singapore.
The Indonesia-Singapore Business Forum was held by the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore along with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN), with the objective of not only inviting business actors to invest in Indonesia but also to promote Indonesia’s G20 Presidency.
