The Jakarta Post
Two delegations from the European Parliament are in Indonesia to deepen European Union-Indonesia cooperation and support the strategic partnership with ASEAN.
Members of the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee are visiting Indonesia on Tuesday and Wednesday, the EU Delegation to Indonesia said on Saturday.
This delegation, led by committee chairman David McAllister, includes six Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
Meanwhile, MEPs from the Delegation for Relations with Countries of Southeast Asia and ASEAN (DASE) are visiting from Monday until Wednesday. DASE chairman Werner Langen will lead a delegation of seven MEPs and are scheduled to hold joint meetings with Vice President Jusuf Kalla, Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi, Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita and members of the House of Representatives.
In January this year, European Parliament approved a plan to seek restrictions on the use of palm oil in biofuels due to concerns about its environmental impact.
