This week Indonesia will have its own defense forum in Jakarta to discuss regional security.

Indonesia will host the first-ever Jakarta International Defense Dialogue (JIDD) from Wednesday (23/3) to Friday (25/3).

“The Jakarta International Defense Dialogue (JIDD) will be the region’s principal security coordination mechanism on a global scale,” the organizers, defense minister and the Indonesian Defense University, announced on their website www.jidd.org.

Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said recently that the main aim of the JIDD was to bring together defense officials, experts, academics and policymakers from Asia Pacific, Europe and Africa to discuss regional security architecture,

True to its name the JIDD has attracted more than 500 participants, including Timor Leste Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao, defense ministers as well as defense chiefs, from more than 40 countries across the globe.

The three-day dialogue will be inaugurated by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Wednesday (23/3).
