Maharani welcomed Vuong to Indonesia on the occasion of the 10 founding anniversary of the two countries' strategic partnership (2013-2023).

She said Vuong's visit would countribute to the development of the traditional friendship and strategic partnership, including parliamentary cooperation, between the two countries.

Vuong, for his part, congratulated the Indonesian House of Representatives on successfully hosting the G-20 Parliamentary Forum (P20), and expressed his belief that Indonesia would successfully assume the role of ASEAN Chair 2023 and AIPA Chair 2023.

The two leaders agreed on major directions to promote bilateral relations in the time to come, including increasing visit exchanges at all levels, people-to-people exchanges, parliamentary and local-to-local cooperation.

The two sides agreed to strive to raise their two-way trade turnover to more than US$15 billion in the near future and towards a more balanced direction.

They vowed to facilitate trade through reducing trade barriers, promoting the development of a new strategic supply chain, and taking advantage of their potential and strengths.

The pair agreed to create favorable conditions for businesses of the two countries to diversify fields of investment and business cooperation. 

They stressed the need to share experience in legislative work, creating a legal corridor for the two countries to cooperate closely in such fields like just energy transition and safe digital transformation.

The two sides also agreed to fortify maritime and fisheries cooperation while promoting the settlement of issues related to illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

Comparing notes on regional and international issues in the context of complicated and unpredictable developments, both host and guest agreed to continue to strengthen consultation and close coordination between the two countries at regional and international forums, such as the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA), the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), and the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF)

They voiced their strong support for ASEAN's solidarity and central role, as well as their positions on regional and international issues of mutual concern.

The two leaders reaffirmed the importance of peace, stability, safety, security and freedom of navigation in the East Sea. 

They emphasized the need to maintain the solidarity and common stance of ASEAN in the East Sea issue, promote the implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC) and closely coordinate in formulation of the Code of Conduct (COC) in the regional waters in accordance with international law and the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

On this occasion, Maharani said Indonesia would send a delegation to attend the 9th Global Conference of Young Parliamentarians to be hosted by the National Assembly of Viet Nam in September 2023.

After the talks, the two leaders signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation between the two legislative bodies./.
