Dutch minister, 18 CEOs to visit Indonesia
Publication Date : 26-03-2014
Dutch Infrastructure and Environment Minister Melanie Schultz van Haegen and 18 CEOs from several infrastructure companies are scheduled to visit Indonesia from March 31 to April 4.
“During the visit, they will discuss the master plan of National Capital Integrated Coastal Development (NCICD) with their Indonesian counterparts,” said the first secretary of the Indonesian Embassy in The Hague, Berlianto Situngkir, on Wednesday as quoted by Antara news agency.
The meeting will also cover the future course of RI-Netherlands bilateral investment agreements after the current agreement expires in June 2015.
Indonesia is currently preparing a new framework for bilateral investment agreements, which it will discuss with its partner countries and adjust to match recent changes and developments.
Berlianto said Vice President Boediono held talks with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte at his official residence in The Hague on Sunday, during his working visit to the Netherlands.
The two leaders discussed initiatives to follow up from PM Rutte’s visit to Indonesia in November 2013.
Both Boediono and PM Rutte expressed their satisfaction over follow-ups from the visit that were regarded as significant, such as the signing of an RI-Netherlands defense agreement by Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro and his Dutch counterpart, Defense Minister Jeanine Hennis-Passchaert.
