SUBJECT: OFFICIAL GOI INVITE TO FOREST ELEVEN MINISTERIAL

REF: JAKARTA 1757

1. Post has received the official invitation to the upcoming
Ministerial Meeting of the Tropical Rainforest Countries (Forest
Eleven/F-11) Plus Partners in Jakarta on October 17, 2008 (reftel).
The GOI Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and Forest Ministry will
co-host a Ministerial Meeting of the F-11 from October 15 - 17,
2008. Participants are requested to register by October 10.

2. The invitation, signed by both the Minister of Foreign Affairs
and Minister of Forestry, is reproduced below.

Jakarta, 22 September 2008

Excellency,

We are writing to you in the spirit of the consensus reached during
the Meeting of Tropical Rainforest Countries (Forest Eleven) with
other rainforest countries and partner countries held in Bali in
December 2007 on the sideline of the United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). On that occasion we all
stressed the need to strengthen international cooperation in the
field of sustainable forest management.

Thus all participants reiterated the commitment to promote among all
stakeholders cooperation in sustainable forest management and in
addressing the challenge of deforestation.

Accordingly, Forest Eleven (F-11) is now drafting a Tropical
Rainforest Countries (F-11) Cooperation Framework to translate the
commitments reached in the Joint Statement of Tropical Rainforest
Countries' Leaders of 24 September 2007 into a set of concrete and
concerted cooperation to complement the process towards post-2012
international climate change arrangement.

In the light of these developments, we are pleased to invite you to
Jakarta for an F-11 + Partner Countries Ministerial Meeting on 17
October 2008 to further strengthen our cooperation.

We look forward to welcoming you and working closely with you in
Jakarta.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of our highest
consideration.

Dr. N. Hassan Wirajuda
Minister for Foreign Affairs

Dr. (HC) M.S. Kaban
Minister for Forestry

3. For additional information on the F-11 Ministerial Meeting,
including for participant registration, please contact Machut
