Indonesia in the changing world: A conversation with President Joko Widodo of Indonesia

Strobe Talbott, Brad Sherman, Joko Widodo, and Richard C. Bush

On October 27, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at Brookings hosted President Joko Widodo of Indonesia for a discussion on the role of Indonesia in the changing world, focusing on economic opportunities and reforms, geopolitics, ASEAN, and international commitments. Brookings President Strobe Talbott provided introductions and Congressman Brad Sherman of California delivered opening remarks. Director of the Center for East Asia Policy Studies Richard Bush moderated the discussion and concluded with his closing remarks.

President Widodo took office in October 2014, defeating his opponent through an unprecedented, volunteer-based campaign that called for government reforms. Previously, he served as the governor of Jakarta (2012-2014) and as the mayor of Surakarta (2005-2012).
