Singapore and Indonesia enjoy warm and friendly ties. Our Leaders and Ministers work closely together bilaterally, as well as at ASEAN and various international fora, to advance common interests. We have regular high-level exchanges, including the annual Leaders’ Retreat and the Six Bilateral Economic Working Groups Ministerial Meeting. These exchanges strengthen our ties with Indonesia both at the central government and at the provincial levels.
Our relations are underpinned by strong economic cooperation. Bilateral trade reached $59 billion in 2019, and Singapore has been the top foreign investor in Indonesia since 2014. Both countries also have substantive cooperation across a wide range of sectors, including education, culture, defence and the environment.
