Initiating the meeting, President Jokowi expressed appreciation to President MBZ for successfully hosting COP28 under the presidency of the UAE.

“Congratulations on the successful hosting of COP28. Indonesia is ready to support the breakthroughs initiated by the UAE Presidency to address climate change, especially for developing countries,” the President said.

During the meeting, the two leaders also discussed the enhancement of cooperation in various fields, including the energy sector, which is Indonesia’s largest import from the UAE.

“Indonesia hopes that the UAE can provide more competitive oil prices for Indonesia,” President Jokowi stated.

President Jokowi and President MBZ also discussed strategic investments between Indonesia and the UAE. President Jokowi expressed appreciation for the UAE’s support for the 145 MW solar power project in Cirata, West Java, and expressed hope for similar support for the realization of other strategic projects in the country.

“I also welcome the agreement on the MoU between BMKG (Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency) and the UAE National Meteorological Center,” said the President.

Regarding cooperation in the labor sector, President Jokowi stated Indonesia’s commitment to sending professional, educated, and trained workers to the UAE. Therefore, the President requested that the UAE government provide guarantees for the protection of Indonesian migrant workers (PMI).
