The 4th Ministerial Meeting of the AIS Forum - 


The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut B. Pandjaitan gave a speech at the Welcoming Dinner of the 4th Ministerial Meeting of the AIS Forum in Bali, on Monday (5-12-2022).

Coordinating Minister Luhut warmly welcomed the delegates who attended the welcoming dinner.

"Welcome to Indonesia, on the beautiful island of Bali. I hope you can enjoy your visit, feel a warm welcome and bring a wonderful experience when you return to your country," said Coordinating Minister Luhut.

Coordinating Minister Luhut stated that the presence of the delegates at the AIS Forum event was proof of the dedication of each country to strengthen cooperation. In a world that is always changing, this meeting is a hope for us to be able to change the future.

“Through this AIS Forum, we are optimistic that we can become a resilient and adaptive society that relies on our own strengths and abilities to come up with solutions. We have committed to produce a better future through collaboration," he said.

The Coordinating Minister Luhut further said that as guardians of the vast ocean areas in the world, our commitments and actions today are important for the future of the world. The ocean regulates the climate, conserves enough carbon and provides a large amount of food sources for the world.

"We as island and archipelagic countries must ensure that we are the driving force to accelerate the sustainable use and protection of the world's oceans," said Coordinating Minister Luhut.

According to a release received by Voice of Indonesia on Monday, the series of discussions that have been carried out over the last four years have brought us to a critical point to form a more effective collaboration, he added. Much progress has been made and positive results have been produced, but there are also some challenges that we must overcome.

"Indonesia in this case facilitates meaningful discussions, cooperation and positive results and we have committed to continuing our modest contribution to creating an effective secretariat for the next five years and holding a meeting of leaders of AIS Forum participating countries as mandated in the second ministerial meeting, "explained the Coordinating Minister.

The AIS Forum is a space for bridging collaboration, strengthening coordination so that each country can strategically increase capacity, resilience and maximize the benefits they have for the good of the people, nation and global community.

“Despite the uniqueness that we have, I believe we have one goal. Let's mark this peaceful night as a good intention for our future collaboration," concluded Coordinating Minister Luhut//VOI
