Jakarta. Building resilient national health security and strengthening ties for economic recovery are among Indonesia’s five diplomatic priorities in 2021, according to Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi.
The minister kicked off 2021 by announcing Indonesia’s diplomatic agenda for the year ahead. With the Covid-19 pandemic still in full swing, it is no surprise the country’s first two diplomatic priorities are within the health and economy sectors.
“Our first [diplomacy priority] is building a self-sufficient and resilient national health security,” Retno said at the virtual annual year-end conference on Wednesday.
