Vietnam and Indonesia set up diplomatic relations on December 30, 1955, but the year 1990 marked the start of a new period in bilateral ties with the historic visit of President Suharto to Vietnam in November that year.
New milestones in bilateral ties included the signing of the “Framework of Friendly and Comprehensive Partnership Entering the 21st Century” and the Agreement on the Delimitation of Continental Shelf in June 2003 during President Megawati Soekarno’s visit and the official establishment of their strategic partnership during the then President Truong Tan Sang’s state visit to Indonesia in 2013.
Particularly, the visit to Indonesia by Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, the first by a General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam to Indonesia, in August 2017 opened a new chapter in bilateral relations.
According to Vietnamese Ambassador to Indonesia Pham Vinh Quang, in terms of political and diplomatic relations, the two sides have maintained high-level visits, including those made by Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh, and many Indonesia leaders.
In 2019 alone, the two countries organized 27 military exchanges and held activities to mark the 60th anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh’s visit to Indonesia and President Sukarno’s trip to Vietnam.
Ambassador Quang also said that Vietnam and Indonesia have worked to boost economic, trade and investment relations, with two-way trade rising from USD 8.4 billion in 2018 to USD 9.1 billion in 2019. Two countries aim to achieve the target of USD 10 billion in import-export revenue in 2020./.
