Pakistan and Indonesia enjoy excellent relations. Both countries are tied in strong bonds of friendship, which has grown deeper and deeper with the each passing day.

The former Ambassador of Indonesia Iwan S Amri who has just left Pakistan after completing his term, played key role in bringing both countries even closer.

During his tenure people to people contacts between Pakistan and Indonesia were increased besides a marked improvement in trade and business activities.

Population wise both countries happen to be the biggest among Muslim countries, therefore their population size makes them important and relevant in the comity of nations. People in both countries are industrious and resilient, which ostensibly is a big plus point.

The new ambassador is expected to take charge in few weeks. It is hoped bilateral relations will further be cemented and diversified during his tenure as well.
