Chinese President Xi Jinping had a telephone conversation with Indonesian President Joko on January 11. Xi pointed out that since last year, China-Indonesia relations have gone against the trend and made steady progress under the epidemic situation in novel coronavirus pneumonia. The two countries launched a high-level dialogue and cooperation mechanism, which was driven by four wheels in politics, economy, humanities and sea, and constructed a new pattern of bilateral cooperation. China and Indonesia are both big developing countries, and they share the same interests on the road of seeking development for the country and happiness for the people. Facing the changes of the century and the epidemic situation in the past century, both sides should strive to build a community of destiny. To achieve this goal, the key is to do a good job in specific things.  


Xi Jinping emphasized that both sides should jointly fight the epidemic and create a model of health cooperation. China will continue to cooperate with Indonesia in the whole vaccine industry chain and drug research and development, help Indonesia build a regional vaccine production center, promote the improvement of global public health governance and build a community of human health and health on the basis of joint efforts to fight the epidemic. Both sides should develop together and set a benchmark for pragmatic cooperation. It is necessary to combine the co-construction of "the belt and road initiative" with the construction of a new development pattern in China and the Indonesian national medium-and long-term development plan, promote cooperation in the post-epidemic period as a whole, build an Jakarta-Bandung Highspeed Railway with high quality, implement key projects such as "regional comprehensive economic corridor" and "double parks between the two countries", and foster new growth points such as new energy, low carbon, digital economy and maritime cooperation. As long as it is conducive to promoting Indonesia's development and deepening China-Indonesia cooperation, China will actively participate and do its best.


Xi Jinping emphasized that China attaches great importance to Indonesia's role in regional and international affairs, and is willing to work with Indonesia to implement the consensus of last year's China-ASEAN Commemorative Summit, promote regional economic recovery and maintain regional peace and stability. China and Indonesia hold the chairmanship of BRICS and G20 respectively this year. China is willing to work with Indonesia to practice true multilateralism, actively implement global development initiatives, safeguard the interests of emerging market countries and developing countries, and contribute to promoting the recovery and development of the world economy and improving global economic governance.


Joko said that I would like to congratulate the successful convening of the Sixth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee and believe that under the leadership of General Secretary Xi Jinping, the Chinese people will continue to create new glory. Last year, bilateral trade and investment between Indonesia and China grew rapidly, and cooperation in health care, especially in vaccine production and drug research and development, achieved remarkable results. 80% of Indonesia's vaccines came from China. The construction of Yawan Railway is progressing smoothly and is expected to be completed and opened to traffic as scheduled. The good relations between Indonesia and China are based on mutual respect and win-win cooperation. Indonesia is willing to strengthen cooperation with China in the fields of economy, trade and anti-epidemic, actively promote the co-construction of "the belt and road initiative", build a "regional comprehensive economic corridor" and a "double park between the two countries", and welcome Chinese enterprises to invest in Indonesia and carry out cooperation in high-tech and green fields. As the presidency of the G20 this year, Indonesia is willing to work closely with China to promote the G20 to play an active role in promoting international solidarity and world economic recovery. I wish the Chinese people a happy Spring Festival! I wish Beijing Winter Olympics and Winter Paralympics success!
