State Visit to Indonesia
King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will pay a State Visit to Indonesia on 22–24 May 2017 at the invitation of President Joko Widodo. The Swedish Government will be represented.
The State Visit is an opportunity to strengthen the political, economic and cultural relations between Sweden and Indonesia in the long term. Trade, sustainability, research and innovation are the main themes of the visit.
With 260 million inhabitants, Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous country and its third largest democracy. It is a high-priority export market with great potential, and a Swedish business delegation will accompany the State Visit.
Further information about the programme and participants will be published closer to the time of the visit.
