14 juillet 2018
Hôtel Ritz-Carlton, Jakarta

Yang Mulia, Bapak Ignasius Jonan, Menteri Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral Republik Indonesia,
Yang terhormat hadirin dan hadirat,
Yang terhormat para wakil Pemerintah Republik Indonesia, Parlemen, dan Pemerintah Propinsi Jakarta,
Yang terhormat para wakil korps diplomatik dan lembaga-lembaga internasional,
Yang terhormat rekan sejawat, sebangsa setanah air dan para sahabat.

Hari ini, tanggal empat belas Juli, masyarakat Perancis di seluruh dunia memperingati Revolusi Perancis tahun seribu tujuh ratus delapan puluh sembilan (1789). Namun perayaan ini bukan hanya bagi negara kami, namun juga bagi semua sahabat kebebasan, kesetaraan dan persaudaraan. Malam ini, saya senang kita semua dapat berkumpul merayakan nilai-nilai yang kita junjung tinggi.

Indonesia and France decided in 2011 to enter into a strategic partnership. Our mission, along with our Indonesian friends, is to translate this partnership into concrete projects and joint initiatives, in line with the major priorities that we share, such as trade and investment, fight against the terrorist threat and all sorts of extremism, protection of the environment and biodiversity, as well as exchanges in the fields of culture and tourism.

As a member of the G20 and very soon of the United Nations Security Council, Indonesia is a nation that counts on the international stage. After President Hollande’s visit in early 2017 and the brief meeting between President Joko Widodo and President Macron in Hamburg last summer, we shall pursue this dialogue at the highest level.

Confronting the dangers of populism and of self-interest, and of trade wars leading to a dead end, Indonesia, like France, is committed to greater openness. This is confirmed by our shared political will to conclude as soon as possible the so-called CEPA agreement between the European Union and Indonesia.

On the sensitive issue of palm oil, France, like the European Commission and other Member States, has supported a solution of common sense and non-discriminatory. France calls upon a constructive dialogue between producers and consumers, and initiated an important meeting in this regard in Paris last 27th June. In practice, the direct imports of palm oil to France will increase very sharply next year, as a consequence of the start-up of the Refinery of “La Mède”, operated by Total group near Marseille.

Chers compatriotes, si la France rayonne en Indonésie, c’est essentiellement grâce à vous, quelle que soit votre fonction ou position, et je voulais vous en remercier.

Je voudrais aussi remercier les organisateurs de cette soirée, qui ont travaillé dur jusqu’au dernier moment, ainsi que nos sponsors, que je ne peux malheureusement pas citer nommément.

Je suis convaincu que l’Indonésie accueillera avec professionnalisme et son sens traditionnel de l’hospitalité les prochains jeux asiatiques, qui s’ouvriront à Jakarta le 18 août prochain.

Nos amis indonésiens adorent le football et je sais, car j’en ai rencontré beaucoup, que les supporters de l’équipe de France sont nombreux à travers tout le pays. Demain nous aurons besoin de votre soutien pour soulever à nouveau la coupe Jules Rimet, 20 ans après la mémorable finale du Stade de France.

Hidup Indonesia, hidup Perancis, hidup persahabatan Perancis-Indonesia, dan « allez les Bleus ! »
