The Minister of Trade encouraged US investors to invest in Indonesia's new capital, namely the Indonesian Capital City (IKN). This new capital city will become a super hub equipped with industrial areas and strategic trade routes. IKN will also contribute to the world economy in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2035.

In addition, Indonesia's trade balance in September 2023 again recorded a trade surplus of USD 3.42 billion.

The Minister of Trade expressed his gratitude for the positive enthusiasm from business actors. He hopes that Indonesia and the US can increase the status of cooperation from Strategic Partnership to Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP).

Also present on this occasion was the Director General of International Trade Negotiations, Djatmiko Bris Witjaksono; Special Staff to the Minister of Trade for International Trade Agreements, Bara Krishna Hasibuan; Deputy for Funding and Investment of the IKN Authority, Agung Wicaksono; and Deputy for SMEs at the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs, Hanung Harimba Rachman.
