Prime Minister Narendra Modi has left for Jakarta to attend the 18th East Asia Summit, where he will speak about digital advancements, healthcare, and the environment.

On Wednesday, PM Modi left for Jakarta to take part in ASEAN-related talks.

PM Modi announced on his social media platform “X,” formerly known as Twitter, that he was heading to Jakarta to attend meetings pertaining to the ASEAN. This includes the 20th ASEAN-India Summit, which is dedicated to a relationship we adore.

Additionally, he declared that he would attend the 18th East Asia Summit.

The 18th East Asia Summit, which focuses on crucial development sectors including healthcare, the environment, and digital advances, will also feature me there, he continued.

Arindam Bagchi, the official spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), recently published on social media an image of PM Modi participating in former ASEAN-India Summit and EAS formats.

He wrote on Twitter, “As PM @narendramodi is en route to Indonesia, take a quick look at engagements in ASEAN-India Summit and EAS formats.”

Ten countries and one observer state are members of the ASEAN, or Association of Southeast Asian Nations, according to the video. “The ASEAN-Indian Summit will be an opportunity to take the relations between India and ASEAN to newer heights,” the video’s additional statement said.

The prime minister had earlier stated in his statement before leaving that he was looking forward to discussing concrete ways to work together to address global concerns with other leaders.

He also referred to India’s “Act East Policy” and its interaction with the ASEAN bloc as key pillars.

The Indonesian President, Joko Widodo, invited the Prime Minister to visit Jakarta.

The 20th ASEAN-India Summit will be my first involvement. I’m looking forward to addressing the future directions of our alliance, which is entering its fourth decade, with ASEAN leaders. The ‘Act East’ strategy of India is based in large part on engagement with ASEAN. Our relationships have gained new vigour as a result of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, the prime minister stated.

“I’ll be attending the 18th East Asia Summit after that. Discussions about important regional topics like environment, health, digital transformation, and food and energy security can be had at this forum. I’m interested in discussing realistic collaboration strategies with other EAS Leaders so that we can all work together to overcome these global concerns, he continued.

In advance of the September 9–10 G20 Summit, PM Modi will return to New Delhi on Thursday night.
