Prime Minister Anthony Albanese was ceremoniously welcomed at the presidential palace on his first full day in Indonesia.

Mr Albanese was seen riding a bicycle around the grounds of the Bogor Palace next to Indonesian President Joko Widodo.

Sky News Political reporter Trudy McIntosh says the prime minister aims to “strengthen and renew ties with one of Australia’s closest neighbours”.

“Many prime ministers have talked in recent years about the need to strengthen ties and boost economic cooperation, but it hasn’t quite materialized yet,” she said.

“Anthony Albanese and his new team believe they can go further in strengthening economic ties and people-to-people connections.”
