President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo is slated to attend various meetings with his counterparts from ASEAN member states as the Indonesian leader hosts the International Monetary Fund-World Bank Group (IMF-WB) annual meetings on the resort island of Bali next week.

On the margins of the major financial and monetary policy forum, Jokowi will also play host to the ASEAN leaders’ gathering on Oct. 11, which is to include opportunities for Southeast Asian leaders to meet among themselves and interface with United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, World Bank president Jim Yong Kim and IMF managing director Christine Lagarde.

“[While the] IMF-WB event is a ministerial forum this year, Indonesia has also invited leaders of ASEAN member states to the ASEAN Leaders’ Gathering,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arrmanatha Nasir said at a weekly briefing on Thursday.
