The President of Indonesia, Dr Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, will visit Australia from 9 to 11 March.

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.

Prime Minister Rudd and President Yudhoyono will discuss ways to bolster our close cooperation across a number of security, economic, development and environmental challenges - both bilaterally and through forums such as the East Asia Summit, the G20 and the United Nations.

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