India-Indonesia Joint Defence Cooperation Committee to Convene in New Delhi

New Delhi is set to host the seventh Joint Defence Cooperation Committee (JDCC) meeting between India and Indonesia on May 3, 2024. The meeting, a pivotal platform for strategic dialogue, will be co-chaired by Defence Secretary Shri Giridhar Aramane and Secretary General of the Ministry of Defence, Indonesia, Air Marshal (Retd.) Donny Ermawan Taufanto, MDS.

During the gathering, both sides are slated to exchange perspectives on regional and global issues of mutual interest, reflecting the depth of the bilateral relationship between the two nations.

The India-Indonesia friendship, elevated to the level of a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in 2018, has significantly broadened the horizons of bilateral cooperation. Embracing new avenues of collaboration in defence industry, science, and technology, the partnership underscores the importance of defence relations as a key pillar of the burgeoning relationship.

Over the years, defence engagements between India and Indonesia have witnessed a multifaceted expansion. This includes a diverse array of interactions between the armed forces, military exchanges, high-level visits, capacity-building and training programs, collaboration in UN Peacekeeping missions, ship visits, and bilateral exercises.

Established through a defence cooperation agreement inked in 2001, the JDCC serves as a mechanism to identify potential areas of cooperation, address common interests, and coordinate approved cooperative activities.

During his visit to India from May 2 to May 4, 2024, the Secretary General will engage in discussions with Indian Defence Industries, spanning New Delhi and Pune, further cementing the ties between the two nations in the realm of defence cooperation.
