Indonesia’s President-elect Prabowo to Strengthen Ties with Japan During April Visit

Indonesia’s President-elect Prabowo Subianto is scheduled to embark on a diplomatic visit to Japan from April 2 to 3, aiming to enhance bilateral relations with the East Asian nation. During his visit, Prabowo is expected to engage in discussions with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and other officials.

Prabowo’s upcoming trip to Tokyo comes on the heels of his scheduled meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing on April 1, marking his inaugural foreign tour since winning the presidential race less than two months ago.

Addressing the significance of Prabowo’s visit, Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshimasa Hayashi emphasized the longstanding partnership between Japan and Indonesia, characterized by shared fundamental principles and values. The visit is anticipated to reinforce the close cooperation between the two countries across various domains.

As Indonesia prepares for a transition in leadership, Prabowo’s diplomatic overtures signify a commitment to strengthening international ties and fostering mutually beneficial relationships with key regional partners like Japan.
