Chancellor Scholz has departed on a trip to Southeast Asia on Saturday, 12 November. One of the main agendas of the visit is his participation in the G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia, preceded by two stops in Vietnam and Singapore respectively. His talks will focus on promoting free and open rules-based trade with Asia and strengthening global order and stability.

The four-day trip is taking place in light of Germany's increased engagement in the Indo-Pacific region. The talks will also focus on global challenges in relation with the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine.

The Chancellor is expected to arrive in Bali on Monday evening. The two-day G20 summit will then commence on Tuesday under the motto of the Indonesian G20 Presidency: "Recover Together, Recover Stronger".

In a total of three working sessions, the heads of state and government of the G20 will exchange views on the key issues of global food security, sustainable energy transition, global health architecture and digital transformation. These themes will also be discussed in the context of the Russian war against Ukraine.

Prior to the trip to Bali, the Chancellor will have his first stop in Hanoi to meet with Vietnamese government representatives and hold a business roundtable on Sunday. In his second stop in Singapore, he will participate in the 17th Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business (APK) taking place on 13-14 November in Singapore.

The Federal Chancellor will travel back to Berlin on Wednesday evening
