Zhang Jinxiong, Chairman of Indonesian Chinese Entrepreneur Association, delivered a speech at the forum on jointly building a demonstration park for economic and trade innovation and development:
I am very pleased to be invited to participate in today's "Jointly Build Economic and Trade Innovation Development Demonstration Park Forum" event. First of all, please allow me to extend my sincere greetings to you on behalf of Indonesian Chinese Entrepreneur Association.
Indonesia is located at the confluence of the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, with a population of about 270 million. It is the fourth most populous country in the world, a founding member of ASEAN, the only G20 country in ASEAN, and the largest economy in Southeast Asia. It is an emerging country that has attracted much attention from the global market. economy country. Indonesia is rich in natural resources, with abundant reserves of various minerals, forests and marine fishery resources.
Indonesia's natural gas reserves are about 165 trillion cubic feet, and it has 40% of the world's geothermal resources. It is the world's second largest coal exporter, second largest tin producer, and fourth largest bauxite producer. , iron, copper, gold and silver resources are also abundant. In terms of international commodities, Indonesia is the world's largest producer of palm oil and the world's second largest producer of rubber and cocoa. At the same time, Indonesia has an excellent demographic dividend. Young people under the age of 30 account for more than half of the total population. Walking on the streets of Indonesia, you can feel it everywhere. This is a vibrant and energetic place with huge development potential country.
Indonesia's unique geographical advantage has made it a transit hub for East-West trade exchanges and freight transportation as early as the era of great navigation. It has a long coastline, abundant and diverse mineral resources, a diverse, open and inclusive culture and warm and friendly people. The people have also become a valuable resource for the sustainable development of Indonesia's economy and culture.
Indonesia and China are friendly neighbors facing each other across the sea. Whether it is the business exchanges started in the Song Dynasty, or the more widely praised great navigator Zheng Heqi led a fleet to Sumatra, Sri Vijaya and other places. Since ancient times, Indonesia and China have had close economic, trade and cultural exchanges.
Today, whether it is in the “Belt and Road” infrastructure construction cooperation, high-level government visits between our two countries, non-governmental personnel exchanges, economic and trade cooperation between medium, small and micro enterprises, or cross-border e-commerce and other fields and industries , our two countries have very close cooperation and a good development trend of mutual assistance and mutual benefit.
Despite the slowdown in Indonesia's economic growth last year due to the impact of the new crown epidemic, thanks to the government's active actions and efforts, the total GDP in 2021 will still reach US$1.185 trillion, achieving an annual growth rate of 3.69%. In addition, we are also very pleased to see that with the effective control of the new crown epidemic, the active and effective government's various fiscal stimulus policies, and the good coordination among various departments, Indonesia's economic operation is gradually returning to normal. In particular, industries such as manufacturing, construction, wholesale and retail, and communications have shown rapid growth, and hotels and catering services, and transportation and warehousing have also rebounded significantly. At the same time, we also see that foreign investment, including China, is actively flowing back to Indonesia. Among them, since 2016, China has firmly ranked among the top three sources of foreign investment in Indonesia. In 2021, China will invest 3.16 billion US dollars in Indonesia, and the bilateral trade volume between Indonesia and China will be 124.34 billion US dollars, a year-on-year increase of 58.4%.
When global economic integration is being challenged today, we should see that truly responsible countries are using wisdom and practical actions to resolve the crisis and break the deadlock.
As the rotating presidency of the G20 this year, Indonesia is facing the challenge of hosting the most difficult "G20 Summit" in history, but we are very happy to see that the Indonesian government upholds the spirit of objectivity, fairness, diversity and inclusiveness, and actively cooperates with all parties. Communication and coordination. At the same time, we have also seen that China is actively promoting the implementation and implementation of initiatives such as the Belt and Road Initiative and RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership). At the beginning of this year, RCEP has been implemented in China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and some ASEAN countries that already have the conditions. We believe this will be a good start, not only allowing more consumers to enjoy real The preferential treatment will also actively and effectively activate the vitality and development space of the enterprise. At the same time, through government-enterprise linkage and effective cooperation between upstream and downstream of the industrial chain, we will jointly build a demonstration park for economic and trade cooperation among our ASEAN 10+3 countries, and explore more effective and efficient cooperation methods for the implementation of the RCEP cooperation model.
We believe that the development of the world requires openness, inclusiveness, bold innovation, and efficient cooperation and linkage of a broader industrial chain and supply chain. It belongs to sustainable development, and it belongs to win-win cooperation and mutual benefit. The effective cooperation and common development of ASEAN 10+3 will also be a new engine for the future world economic development.
Finally, I would like to thank the organizing committee again for the invitation. On behalf of the Indonesian Chinese Entrepreneurs Association and Indonesian entrepreneurs, I sincerely invite all the guests, leaders, entrepreneurs and friends to come to Indonesia for inspection and exchanges at a convenient time. Come and learn about the business opportunities and potential of this equatorial hot land, feel the hospitality and enthusiasm of the Indonesian people, and build a better future together!
