MEDIA ADVISORY INDONESIA – AFRICA FORUM
Bali, Indonesia, 10 – 11 April 2018
Relations between Indonesia and Africa have always been strong and vibrant for decades. Indonesia has a legacy as the host of the 1955 Asia-Africa Conference which was aimed to build global solidarity in opposing colonialism and seeking economic and cultural cooperation among newly independent countries. The conference shed light for the advancement of cooperation between Asian and African nations through initiatives such as the Non – Alignment Movement and the New Asian-African Strategic Partnership (NAASP).
Indonesia has the ambition to seriously improve economic relations with Africa. To realize all economic potential, it is important to generate possible economic cooperation through a forum that targets all relevant stakeholders, encompassing government, business and other private sectors. As part of its efforts to increase business cooperation with Africa, Indonesia has decided to host “Indonesia-Africa Forum” or IAF 2018.
The forum aims to explore various economic opportunities, to strengthen technical cooperation and to enhance existing partnership between both sides. It intends to provide a unique opportunity for around 550 people of the business society, high level government officials and other attending stakeholders, to gather, interact and explore ways to establish concrete economic cooperation and expand business networks.
The IAF is going to be held on 10 – 11 2018 at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC), Bali, Indonesia. The BNDCC contact details are as follows:
