The United States and Indonesia share a variety of interests in Asia and have many areas of mutual concern. Indonesia takes a broad view on potential integrated solutions to emerging challenges. Successful economic development can serve as a positive force against radicalization and terrorism. Greater prosperity can provide vital support to regional security and stability. Now is an important time to follow on the momentum of Vice President Pence’s visit to Indonesia in April. How can U.S. presence in the region assist Indonesia to achieve its economic and security goals? How can the U.S. and Indonesia work together actively to strengthen opportunities for cooperation? Please join us for a special lecture by Coordinating Minister Luhut Pandjaitan as he outlines the important nexus of economics and security in U.S.-Indonesia engagement.
