Algeria and Indonesia
| Relations between
Algeria and Indonesia |
Algeria and Indonesia are bound by ties of faith
and history. The relations between the two country have always
been based on solid foundations. The longstanding friendship existing
between Algeria and Indonesia lies in the similar experiences
they share through their struggle for independence. The support
extended by Indonesia to the Algerian people during their liberation
war contributed, indeed, to the strengthening of these relations.
The two countries have furthermore forged a close cooperative
relations in the Non-Aligned Movement, the organization of Islamic
Conference, the G-77 and the group of 15 where they share the
same position on many issues.
On the economic fields, Algeria and Indonesia
have endeavored to promote dense bilateral relations and develop
a mutually profitable cooperation. To that end and in order to
give more impetus to the development of their bilateral relations,
widen their scope and increase significantly the opportunities
offered by their vast potentials, several agreements have been
concluded between Algeria and Indonesia.
This legal framework combined with the positive
result achieved so far attest clearly of the strong will of both
countries to foster their relations.
During the last three years, trade relations have
indeed progressed in a positive way with the volume of exchanges
reaching $ US 150 millions. If this positive result is a clear
indication of the good prospect that the future is holding for
the expansion of the bilateral relations, much remains to be done
by the two countries to take the best of their economic potentialities.
I remain, therefore, confident that Algeria and
Indonesia will succeed in a near future, in taking the best of
their potentialities, increasing the volume of their trade exchange
and in building a comprehensive and more diversified cooperation
thus giving a real sense to the South-South cooperation..
The next holding of the session of the joint
commission will, in this regard, certainly contribute to the strengthening
of the algerian-indonesian economic relations.
