On 9 July 2014, after a closely contested political campaign, over 130 million Indonesians across three time zones went to the polls to elect the next president of Southeast Asia’s largest country. This ISIS International Affairs Forum will examine the outcomes of this landmark election and explore their implications for Malaysia-Indonesia relations. What will be the priorities of the next President of Indonesia? What are the key issues that will shape the nature of Malaysia-Indonesia diplomatic relations over the next five years? What will be the opportunities and challenges for Malaysian and Indonesian business interests and investors in both countries?
