Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said at the joint press conference that they talked about cooperation in tourism and in many creative industries. “Korean pop music and films are quite popular in Indonesia at the moment, so I hope our cooperation in these sectors can be strengthened in the future.
