Political Cooperation

Since the establishment of diplomatic ties between Indonesia and Denmark in 1950, the bilateral relations have expanded significantly and several high-level visits have been carried out. Most recently, Queen Margarete II and her deceased husband visited Indonesia in 2015 while the former Prime Minister came to Jakarta in 2017 followed by the latest visit by Crown Princess Mary in 2019.   

The two countries carry out political consultations every year to discuss progress under the strategic partnership, which has strong emphasis on green diplomacy and sustainable development. 

As part of the political cooperation, Denmark is also supporting local institutions such as the Jakarta Centre for Law Enforcement Cooperation (JCLEC) and the Indonesian Ombudsman among others. Moreover, Denmark cooperates with Indonesian religious organisations when it comes to enhancing tolerance and interfaith dialogue.
