Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces has arrived in Jakarta for his state visit to the Republic of Indonesia. He was warmly welcomed by President Joko Widodo of Indonesia at the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
When Sheikh Mohamed arrived with his delegations at the Bogor Palace, an official reception ceremony was upheld and both countries’ national anthems were played. Sheikh Mohammed is visiting Indonesia after his historic three-day visit to China which made strong the relation between UAE and China.

Many vital aspects including investment, economic, cultural, developmental and agricultural fields touched the meeting.
“The visit of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to the friendly Republic of Indonesia in 1990 underscored the great importance the UAE leadership attaches to the UAE-Indonesian relations. These relations have witnessed growth and progress in various fields, and there is an Emirati vision for further developing these relations during the next stage,” Sheikh Mohamed said.
“The UAE, under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa, has great interest in strengthening relations and partnerships with the Republic of Indonesia in many important and vital areas, especially in the fields of oil, gas, renewable energy, agriculture, tourism, investment, and others. The economic relations between the two countries have a lot of opportunities and elements of development and prosperity, which is important to invest in, in the future, to further strengthen development links,” Sheikh Mohamed added.
The Indonesian President expressed his confidence that the visit will no doubt make stronger the outstanding relations between the two countries and also emphasized his nation’s eagerness to make stronger its relations with the UAE.
