Australia's relationship with Indonesia is multi-faceted, vibrant and growing. It is in the top rank of our bilateral partnerships. We share democratic values and are working together constructively to address regional and global challenges.
President Yudhoyono's visit to Australia early in his second term demonstrates our high-level shared commitment to strengthen this vital relationship further.

President Yudhoyono will visit Sydney and Canberra, where he will address the Australian Parliament.
