Australia PM offers climate assistance, stronger ties in Indonesia visit
JAKARTA — The leaders of Australia and Indonesia discussed stronger Indo-Pacific cooperation, security and climate change during a meeting on Monday, which included the offer by Canberra of a $200 million climate partnership.
Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese met with President Joko Widodo on Monday as part of a trip to shore-up relations between the two neighbours, in his first bilateral visit since being elected last month. Albanese also offered technical assistance for Indonesia’s green, high-tech new capital.
It was not immediately clear if the climate package was denominated in Australian or U.S. dollars.
