Dr Desra Percaya, Indonesian Ambassador to the United Kingdom
As the UK shapes its post Brexit trade strategy, Indonesia – the world’s fourth most populous nation and tenth-largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity – is emerging as a key market for UK engagement. In December 2020, Indonesia and the UK concluded the third round of a Joint Trade Review, with both sides looking to strengthen trade and investment links, especially in the post-pandemic era.
Asia House Corporate Members will be briefed on Indonesia-UK relations by Dr Desra Percaya, the newly-appointed Indonesian Ambassador to the UK, on Monday 15 February. As well as outlining his ambitions in post, Pak Desra will also engage Corporate Members on Indonesia’s plans for COP26 and Indonesia’s G20 presidency in 2022.
Dr Desra Percaya was appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Indonesia to the United Kingdom, Ireland, and IMO in October 2020. Throughout his career, he has helped shape Indonesia’s policies, particularly regarding international peace and security, disarmament, human rights, economic development, as well as social and humanitarian affairs.
Dr Desra was previously Director General for Asia Pacific and Africa at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He has served as Permanent Representative of Indonesia to the United Nations in New York (2012-2016), as well as Ambassador and Deputy Permanent Representative of Indonesia to the WTO and other international organisations in Geneva (2009-2011).
