How can Canberra and Jakarta advance efforts to bolster cyber security cooperation?
Earlier this week, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese met with Indonesian President Joko Widodo for the Annual Leaders’ Meeting in Bogor.
In a joint communique, the pair reaffirmed their commitments to deepening cooperation under the five pillars of the bilateral Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP) launched in 2018:
- economic and development partnership;
- connecting people;
- securing shared interests;
- maritime cooperation; and
- Indo‑Pacific stability and prosperity.
The pair stressed the importance of supporting ASEAN centrality amid growing instability in the region, with Australia renewing its support for the ASEAN outlook on the Indo-Pacific.
This was in addition to a bilateral commitment from Prime Minister Albanese and President Widodo for greater defence and security cooperation.
