Nathiagali, 31 October 2022 (TDI): Indonesian Ambassador to Pakistan, Adam M. Tugio, spoke to the Indonesian diaspora in Nathiagli, in a ceremony.
He stated that the northern areas were very important in world tourism, including Pakistan. Important tourist destinations including Nathiagali will play an important role in future tourism promotion in Indonesia and Pakistan.
In this vein, he spoke to the local electronic media that the beautiful scenery of Nathiagli with its natural beauty and colors will attract people.
He underscored that these natural colors and natural scenes are extremely important in Nathiagali, and they must be preserved.
Along these lines, he reiterated that the future agreements regarding Nathiagali and other tourist destinations in Indonesia and Pakistan as well as mutual tourism cooperation cannot be completely ruled out.
Regarding the economic cooperation taking place in Indonesia and Pakistan, he stated that mutual relations and collaboration are crucial in both nations’ major cities. There is a good chance that similar agreements will be reached in Lahore and Karachi.
Additionally, discussions about the region’s sister cities and other Indonesian tourist destinations should take place. This will improve mutually beneficial economic, commercial, and tourism sector cooperation.
The Ambassador claimed that Indonesia’s diaspora in Pakistan served as the country’s original voice and helps both nations’ economic, commercial, cultural, and interpersonal ties grow.
In response to a question, he said that the governments of both countries were still working on extensive plans for further enhancing economic and trade relations between Pakistan and Indonesia. Many Indonesian businesses and investors are prepared to make investments in Pakistan.
Likewise, there was potential for additional investments from Indonesian investors in the food and palm oil sectors after two Indonesian companies recently conducted business in Faisalabad and Karachi.
Ambassador Adam stated that there was a need to increase trade between Pakistan and Indonesia at the current rate because it is currently lower than it could be.
Pakistan and Indonesia share cultural similarities, which was crucial for advancing bilateral ties between the two nations.
The Ambassador stated that there was hope for significant progress in this area soon as direct air flights between Pakistan and Indonesia are currently being discussed in both nations.
He stated that talks with the two airlines are ongoing in order to establish a direct flight between Pakistan and Indonesia from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Lahore.
