The task of public diplomacy – to enlist the public – is becoming particularly significant today. Programs in the field of information, culture and education, used in states foreign policy and generally defined as the public diplomacy, are experiencing today a new stage of development and attention from governments, various non-government international actors and experts. Indonesia is the most populated Muslim country in the world and one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia. However, it’s fair to note that major constraint in the development of Russian-Indonesian relations is still remaining a low level of information exchange on very extensive possibilities of unrealized cooperation potential in the field of trade, investment, tourism and other spheres of interaction between both countries business circles. Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia in the Russian Federation Mr. Djauhari Oratmangun in his interview with the head of the Center for Eurasian Cooperation and Development (CECD) Olga Biryukova specially for the “Economic Strategies” magazine told about the intricacies of Russian-Indonesian relations and the public diplomacy possibilities in this context.
