Obama to arrive in Indonesia on June 14
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Tue, 05/25/2010 5:09 PM
US President Barack Obama is scheduled to arrive in Jakarta on June
14 for a much-anticipated visit to the country where he spent part of
his childhood over 40 years ago.
US Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs Maria
Otero told a press conference in Washington on Monday that Obama
would launch during his trip a US-Indonesian comprehensive
partnership that would cover various fields, ranging from the economy
Otero made a trip to Indonesia on May 17-21 and discussed potential
partnerships with senior government officials, nonprofit
organizations, nongovernmental organizations and civil society activists.
"One of the key goals of [Obama's] trip is to engage with government
officials on how our democracies can cooperate to support and
strengthen the democratic institutions in the region."
This will all be part of the partnership, Otero said.
Obama was slated to visit Indonesia in November during a trip to an
APEC meeting in Singapore. The visit to Indonesia was rescheduled to
March, but postponed later because of a key US Congress' vote on health care.
