On July 22, electoral authorities announced that Joko Widodo (a.k.a. Jokowi) had won Indonesia’s presidential election. From the Canadian viewpoint, this is a favourable outcome. Unlike his rival, Prabowo Subianto, Jokowi does not have a record of human-rights violations that could impede relations between our countries, and of the two candidates, he was the most open to economic co-operation with the outside world. The warm relations between Canada and Indonesia look set to continue.
