Press Secretary: Marcos’ second day in Indonesia was “extremely productive.”

Day 2 of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s state visit to Indonesia was “extremely constructive,” a Palace representative said on Monday.

Press Secretary Trixie-Cruz Angeles stated during a press conference at the Harris Suites in Jakarta that the President accomplished a lot in a single day.

Cruz-Angeles stated that the meeting was “very constructive” since the president had not anticipated how quickly the discussions between him and [Indonesian] President [Joko] Widodo would advance.

Marcos met with his Indonesian counterpart and other Indonesian officials in a bilateral meeting at the Bogor Presidential Palace in West Java just before noon, together with the Philippine delegation.

Four agreements on defense cooperation, cultural collaboration, the creative economy, and a plan of action for bilateral cooperation were all inked during the meeting between the two administrations.

Marcos emphasized his belief that the four accords reached between the Philippines and Indonesia will benefit the two nations and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) as a whole in a post on his official Facebook page.

According to Marcos, “We are sure that the accords struck between our countries would contribute to the development of a peaceful and more cohesive Asean region.”

In Jakarta’s Kalibata National Heroes Memorial Park, Marcos participated in a wreath-laying ceremony and paid his respects in front of the Heroes Monument.

At the solemn ceremony, he was joined by First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos.

The Kalibata National Heroes Memorial Park, which was constructed in 1953, serves as the final resting place for many of Indonesia’s national heroes, including the founding fathers, freedom fighters, revolutionary leaders, high-ranking government officials, military officers, and indigenous artists and scientists.

Just 200 meters separate the Heroes Monument from the cemetery.

In Jakarta’s Fairmont Hotel, Marcos also participated in a roundtable discussion with business executives from Indonesia.

According to Cruz-Angeles, the President was pleased with their interest in the Philippine economy.

She continued, “This is a component of his plan for economic recovery, and he also joyfully communicated to them the overall results of his agreements or his conversations with President Widodo.”

From September 4 to 6, Marcos will be in Indonesia for a three-day state visit.

On September 6 and 7, he will also pay a state visit to Singapore.
