At the invitation of President Joko Widodo, Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima will pay a state visit to the Republic of Indonesia in the week of 9 March 2020.

The state visit affirms the close, wide-ranging relationship between the two countries. Its guiding theme will be future-oriented cooperation in the areas of agriculture, healthcare, coastal protection and maritime technology, and circular economy and water technology. The programme will also focus on nature conservation, science, culture and the many ties that exist between the peoples of Indonesia and the Netherlands, based in part on their shared history. The King and Queen will be accompanied during their visit by foreign minister Stef Blok.
