Dialogues

1. Joint Committee on Offshore Plant Service Industry

  • The Joint Committee, co-chaired by Deputy Ministers, is established with the following functions:
    To devise, review, advise, and recommend plans for cooperation in the area of the Offshore Plant Service Industry;
  • To coordinate, monitor, and evaluate the implementation of programs and projects;
  • To identify projects and establish implementation plans for future cooperation.

The Joint Committee Meetings for the Offshore Plant Service Industry is established through an MoU between the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment of Indonesia, and the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of Korea (KMOF) in 2021 on Maritime Cooperation in the Field of Offshore Plant Service Industries.

The Joint Committee determines its own procedure for an equal decision-making process between Sides and takes into account prevailing national laws and regulations. These meetings are hosted annually and are alternately hosted by each country.

2. Joint Research Commission

Provisions on Joint Commissions are further supported by the 2019 Implementing Arrangement (IA) between the KMOF and the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries of the Republic of Indonesia (KKP) regarding the establishment of a Korea-Indonesia Offshore Research Cooperation Center (KIORCC).

Here, the IA elaborates on the Joint Commission; which functions are to plan, review, and adjust the planning and implementation of projects. These functions allow the Commission to examine, review and give input on yearly research plans, joint research implementation, final reports, and other important issues related to the KIORCC.

These provisions are given in the IA so that both Indonesian and Korean parties can promote the further development of communication and cooperation in conducting projects in marine and ocean-related activities.

Bilateral Maritime Dialogues (BMD) are held annually between Korea and Indonesia since 2017. This dialogue is represented by the Coordinating Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Investment of Indonesia, the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries of Indonesia, along with the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of the Republic of Korea to strengthen the bilateral cooperation between the two countries in the maritime sector.

  • The 1st Bilateral Maritime Dialogue which was held on December 15th, 2017, explored capacity-building technology and safety in the maritime sector, as well as increasing fisheries resources through well-defined regulations. In this BMD, KMOF presented topics on offshore decommissioning markets, the history of KMOF cooperation with Indonesia, abandoned platform re-utilization (fishery cold storage, artificial reefs), and the road map for future collaboration projects of the two nations.

  • The 2nd Bilateral Maritime Dialogue which was held on April 24th, 2018, had delegates of both States discuss the details of future cooperation in developing capacity in the fisheries sector. Here, the results of the location study and follow-up cooperation on the use of offshore platforms as media for fisheries development (Rig-to-Reef and Fish Farm Programs) were also delivered. It was shown that Rig-to-Reef was the most effective. Furthermore, costs, benefits, and future plans for decommissioning were discussed.

  • The 3rd Bilateral Maritime Dialogue on December 17th, 2019 focused on strengthening the implementation of previous dialogues. The forum agreed to focus on four strategic sectors, namely marine research and development capacity; aquaculture and marine environmental protection; port development; and maritime safety and security. Decommissioning was the focus topic presented by KIORCC in this BMD, and the possibility of starting a pilot project in Indonesia, specifically in Pertamina’s Attaka Field, was also raised.
