Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia (RI) to Malaysia, Rusdi Kirana wants Indonesia and Malaysia to have a joint promotion. He told the media on Thursday, February 15th at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jakarta, that the joint promotion in some potential sectors was one of efforts to realize a better bilateral relationship between Indonesia and Malaysia.
“When I have a meeting with Malaysia Indonesia Business Council I have to say, one way to make a better relationship is through joint promotion. We make twin city for tourism together, we go to a third country, for example to China or Korea. We both introduce our culture. Because, claiming cultures to be its cultures is not good for both countries. Well, both countries promote their culture and also tourism. In trade, we promote our respective trade,” Rusdi Kirana said.
Rusdi Kirana added he is optimistic that there will be some potential developed from the joint promotion between Indonesia and Malaysia. To that end, the Indonesian Embassy in Malaysia continues to make efforts to realize the joint promotion between the two countries. However, on the other hand, Rusdi Kirana also wants all cases involving Indonesia and Malaysia especially related to Indonesian Migrant Workers (BMI) can be resolved soon, because it is related to the successful joint promotion between the two countries.
