Jakarta: The trade war between the United States and China has made the world turbulent. It does not only affect the global economy but also global politics and even relations between communities. As a developing country, Indonesia needs to survive the trade war.
Therefore, to find out the foreign policy used by Indonesia in the face of the trade war, the Indonesian Foreign Policy Community (FPCI) held the Conference of Indonesian Foreign Policy (CIFP) which is the largest Indonesian foreign policy conference in the world.
This event has been held five times. The theme of this year's event is 'Hot Peace'. Acccording to Dino Patti Djalal, the founder of FPCI, the theme is relevant to the current world situation.
"The theme is Hot Peace. Why? Because people call this the new cold war, but in our opinion, this is hot peace. It's not the cold war anymore," Dino told Medcom.id on Thursday, November 28, 2019.
At this time the situation is 'peaceful' but still haunted by rivalry. This CIFP activity will highlight the role of Indonesia in dealing with the hot peace. Various prominent figures are set to attend this event, including Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi, Deputy Foreign Minister Mahendra Siregar, Coordinating Minister for Economy Airlangga Hartarto, Nobel laureate Jose Ramos Horta and former Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith.
