With the COVID-19 pandemic ravaging the world over, countries across regions continue to explore ways to recover their economies, especially in the industries crucial to them. Indonesia and Spain are two countries tied by both history and affinity. As a member of EU and ASEAN, they both share the common concern and willingness to work on the bigger trade issues that have existed for quite a while, such as the issue of palm oil.
CSIS Indonesia - Centre for Strategic and International Studies in collaboration with Casa Asia and with the support of Directorate Europe I (Western and Southern Europe Cooperation) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, is hosting the 1st Indonesia-Spain Forum 2021. This session seeks to share the lessons learned on how to revive and recover some of the most crucial economic sectors between the two countries through exploring new economic sectors.
