In order to attend the 20th ASEAN-India Summit and the 18th East Asia Summit (EAS), Prime Minister Narendra Modi will depart for Indonesia on Wednesday.

PM Modi will depart for Indonesia in the evening of September 6 and return to New Delhi the next day in the late hours of the evening.

On the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo,’s invitation, the Prime Minister will travel to Jakarta. On September 7 (Thursday), there will be the 18th East Asia Summit (EAS) and the ASEAN-India Summit.

The schedules for both summits were altered by Indonesia, the ASEAN’s current chair, to allow for Modi’s early departure.

Prior to the G20 Summit, which will take place in New Delhi from September 9 to 10, under India’s Presidency this year, PM Modi will travel to Indonesia.

Indonesia is a member of the G20 “troika” because it presided over the organisation last year.

The upcoming ASEAN-India summit would be the first summit since the ASEAN member countries and India upgraded their relations to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in 2022.

According to the foreign ministry, the summit will assess the development of relations between India and ASEAN and determine the future course of cooperation.

Indonesia will serve as the chair of the ASEAN Summit this year, which has the theme “ASEAN Matters: Epicentrum of Growth.” This motif reveals Indonesia’s expectations for the ASEAN’s relevance and significance as the engine of its economic progress.

The East Asia Summit, according to a release, would give leaders of the ASEAN nations and its eight conversation partners, including India, the chance to discuss issues of regional and international importance.

The ASEAN-India Trade in Goods Agreement (AITIGA), which was signed in 2009, was the primary item on the agenda of the ASEAN-India Economic Ministers’ conference in August in Indonesia.

A joint committee approved a regular, quarterly negotiation plan that would see the ASEAN-India FTA review completed in 2025.

In 2018, Indonesian President Widodo invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Jakarta. In order to usher in a new era in the bilateral relationship between Indonesia and India, both leaders decided during this visit to intensify bilateral cooperation in all areas by forging a New Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.
