Jakarta (ANTARA) - Indonesian Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati discussed tax reform with her Australian counterpart James Edward Chalmers on the sidelines of the 3rd G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors (3rd G20 FMCBG) Meeting in India.

"One of the topics of discussion is taxation, especially related to tax reform," she said on her official Instagram account @smindrawati, which was accessed from Jakarta on Monday.

Apart from taxation, Indrawati and Chalmers also discussed other topics relevant to India's Presidency of the G20.

On climate change financing, they explored the potential for collaboration regarding taxonomy and green financing in the Asian region.

They also discussed infrastructure and its financing by integrating public-private partnership.

"I also take this opportunity to express my appreciation for Jim's support regarding Indonesia's membership in the Financial Action Task Force (FATF)," Indrawati said.

She attended the FMCBG meeting organized under India’s G20 Presidency in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India.

As part of the agenda, she shared her views on economic development and increasing cooperation with various stakeholders.

The dialogue will discuss policies ranging from the highest level to the technical level. The discussion will be targeted at meeting the domestic development needs of each country, as well as efforts to maintain high economic growth performance, create jobs, reduce poverty, and increase cooperation, not only within a bilateral framework, but also at the multilateral level.
