The two leaders will discuss, among other issues, continuing the transition to clean energy, promoting economic prosperity and promoting peace and stability in the region, the White House announced Tuesday.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden would “reaffirm the United States’ commitment to deepening our nearly 75-year partnership between the world’s second and third largest democracies.”
The meeting with Widodo at the White House comes just before Biden travels to San Francisco later in the week for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in San Francisco. Biden and Widodo also spoke at the Group of 20 summit in New Delhi in September.
Biden was in Indonesia last November, when the country hosted that year’s G20 summit.
