Cadre Study Group of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle visits Fujian
A 20-member cadre study group of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) visited Fuzhou and Quanzhou from July 25 to 29 at the invitation of the International Department of the Central Committee of CPC.
During their meeting on July 26, Gao Xiang, member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Fujian Provincial Committee and head of its Publicity Department, pointed out that Fujian is implementing President Xi’s Belt and Road Initiative and accelerating the construction of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. Indonesia, an important stop on the ancient Maritime Silk Road, is endowed with abundant resources and a vast market, providing great room for Fujian-Indonesia cooperation. Hopefully, both sides would work to deepen industrial capacity cooperation, facilitate information and people-to-people exchanges and build more sister cities to achieve a win-win outcome. Ribka Tjiptaning, head of the group and President of the PDI-P Disaster Management and Social Affairs Committee, thanked Fujian for its hospitality and expressed the wish for a sound and friendly relationship through strengthened exchanges, inter-party cooperation and deepened collaboration in disaster prevention and relief as well as work concerning women and children.
Leaders of the Provincial Foreign Affairs Office, Development and Reform Commission and Civil Affairs Department offered detailed introduction to Fujian-Indonesia cooperation, Fujian’s socioeconomic development, building of the Maritime Silk Road core area and the disaster prevention and relief work. They also answered questions regarding provincial industrial development, disaster prevention and relief mechanisms, the CPC’s history of revolution and party governance.
While in Fuzhou, the group made field trips to learn how the two sides cooperated in fishery industry and visited the base of the Fujian Marche Cold Chain Logistics Project, a joint venture by Fujian’s Chasun Group and Indonesia. During their stay in Quanzhou, the guests visited Peak Group and Qingjing Mosque. They were also deeply impressed by watershed management of the Tao Creek and the traditional White Crane Fist at Dayu Village in Yongchun.
Tjhai Chui Mie, Mayor of Singkawang, West Kalimantan, expressed the wish for friendly exchanges between Singkawang and Jinjiang and Dr. Daniel Rohi looked forward to sending business delegations of East Java to Fujian for further cooperation and promoting exchanges between universities in East Java and Fujian.
