Yudhoyono to meet PM Lee in Singapore for Leaders' Retreat

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono visits Singapore on Monday for a Leader's Retreat with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

They will review the progress made since their last retreat in Bogor, West Java, in March last year and discuss ways to further deepen bilateral ties, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said in a statement on Sunday.

The leaders will take stock of six working groups covering investment, tourism, air connectivity, manpower, agribusiness and the special economic zone in Batam, Bintan and Karimun islands, as well as a seventh working group on counter-terrorism.

President Yudhoyono will also receive an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters from Nanyang Technological University on Monday, said the MFA statement.
