On May 21, 2019, President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory message to President Joko Widodo of Indonesia, congratulating him on his re-election as President of Indonesia on behalf of the Chinese government and Chinese people, and in his own name.
Xi Jinping pointed out in the congratulatory message that as major developing countries, China and Indonesia share broad common interests at bilateral, regional and multilateral levels, and are natural cooperative partners. In recent years, by taking the joint building of the Belt and Road Initiative as an opportunity, the two countries have continuously deepened the synergy between development strategies and have achieved remarkable results in practical cooperation in various areas. China-Indonesia relations have entered a new stage of rapid growth. I attach great importance to China-Indonesia relations, and stand ready to work with President Joko Widodo to elevate the comprehensive strategic partnership between both countries to a new stage based on the foundation over the past five years, so as to bring benefits to the two countries and the two peoples.
