Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous nation and southeast Asia’s largest economy, will host the G20 on the island of Bali at the end of next year. Some 150 preliminary meetings will also be held across the country in the run-up to the main summit.
Given the evolving global disruption caused by the pandemic, the Indonesian government has chosen ‘Recover Together, Recover Stronger’ as the theme for its G20 presidency.
Indonesia’s president, Joko Widodo, also known as Jokowi, has repeatedly stressed his intent to pursue an ‘inclusive and green recovery’ that not only builds trust in the international response to Covid, but also ensures that no one country is left behind.
‘We must encourage investment in a resilient, fair and green recovery,’ Jokowi said. ‘More sustainable, inclusive and pro-poor development must be the foundation.’
