Her Excellency, Maria UBACH FONT,
Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Principality of Andorra,

His Excellency, Gilbert Saboya,
Minister for Economy of the Principality of Andorra,

Excellencies, Ladies and gentlemen,
Good evening,


Bona nit.
És un honor per l'Ambaixada de la República d'Indonèsia donar-vos la benvinguda al Colors d'Indonésia
 
After almost four years, the Indonesian Embassy is proud to once again be in the beautiful Andorra, and present to you, Colors d'indonésia, espectacle de música i dansa. The objective of this wonderful event is to bring to our Andorran friends, a glimpse of Indonesia
 
 
 Ladies and Gentlemen,

Indonesia is the fourth largest population in the world with around 260 million people. It is also the biggest archipelago in the world with more than 17 thousand islands in its territory. Indonesia's economy has grown steadily at 4 to 6% per year to become one of the fastest growing economies in Asia and among the G-20.

Indonesia invests heavily on the development of infrastructure. It continuously improves its business and investment environment to attract foreign investors. I believe these are measures Andorra can relate to. Andorra has carried out transformative economic steps, the cornerstone of which, has been called economic openness. Such steps will encourage economic diversification, attract foreign investment, and open up opportunities.

 

In this respect, it is important to note that since we established diplomatic relations back in 26 March, 1996, Indonesia and Andorra have a good bilateral relation. Following up on our Foreign Ministers meeting earlier this September in New York, we need to explore more opportunities in working together, particularly in trade, tourism, two sectors which we both benefit from.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests.

Every strong cooperation starts with close relations between the two sides. Tonight, let this be a part of our efforts to strengthen our people to people contact. Please allow us to introduce to our Andorran friends, just a small piece of Indonesia.

  
Allow me to extend my great appreciation to the Government of Andorra, for helping us put this event together. Your kind assistance has demonstrated the friendship and commitment of our two countries.
Thank you, I wish you have a wonderful evening!


Moltes gràcies
