PUTRAJAYA: Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo will undertake a two-day working visit to Malaysia starting Wednesday (June 7), which holds significant importance in the mutual effort to further strengthen the longstanding and close relations between the two countries.

During the visit, Joko Widodo, popularly known as Jokowi, is scheduled to have a meeting with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to review the progress of cooperation and discuss outstanding bilateral issues.

"The Prime Minister and the President are expected to also exchange views on regional and global issues including on the strengthening of Asean post 2025.

"In addition, both leaders will also witness the exchange of several agreements after they are signed by the representatives of the relevant ministry and agency,” said a statement from Malaysia’s Foreign Ministry (Wisma Putra).

The President will be accompanied by his spouse, Iriana Joko Widodo, his Cabinet Ministers and senior officials of the Indonesian government during his visit.
