Jakarta (ANTARA) – Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese expressed his commitment to attending the G20 Summit in Bali in November 2022.
“Today, I informed President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) that I will attend the G20 Summit in Bali in November 2022,” PM Albanese stated after holding a bilateral meeting with President Joko Widodo at the Bogor Presidential Palace, West Java, Monday.
Albanese stressed that the G20 summit meeting held immense significance amid the current global economic uncertainty.
“We must effectively overcome the many challenges we face in navigating the global economic recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic. I will work closely with President Jokowi to help make the G20 Indonesia Summit a success,” Albanese remarked.
Albanese expressed belief that Indonesia would rank among the top five economies in the world.
Australia will work with Indonesia to realize the potential of the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA).
“Our minister of economy will discuss regularly, and we will continue to provide support from the business side,” he affirmed.
Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan had earlier visited the Ngurah Rai Mangrove Public Forest and Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Park in Bali Province to review preparations for the 2022 G20 Summit.
Pandjaitan undertook the visit on May 6, 2022. At the public forest, he reviewed the construction of the 2022 G20 delegation’s drop-off and pick-up zone, the ‘wantilan’ (Balinese pavilion), as well as mangrove seedling nursery area.
The minister emphasized that the revitalization should provide security and comfort to the delegations.
“(This is) especially important at several main attractions of the forest, such as the ‘wantilan’, tracking lanes, photo spots, nursery areas, as well as viewing towers and deck,” he noted.
Furthermore, the coordinating minister, who is concurrently chairperson of the organizer of the 2022 G20 Indonesia Presidency, inspected the road and renovation work at GWK Park as well as reviewed the security of the park and traffic engineering of the surrounding roads.
“According to the (traffic engineering) simulation conducted by the head of Bali Regional Police (Inspector General Putu Jayan Danu Putera), it is necessary to revitalize and widen the road to GWK Park to facilitate the mobilization of G20 delegations,” he noted.
