Indonesia is pushing for a travel corridor arrangement for Southeast Asian countries to be in place in the first three months of 2021.

President Joko Widodo said a declaration on the travel corridor will be issued during the ongoing Asean Summit. Indonesia proposed the move in June, when Thailand and Malaysia said they backed the move, while other countries haven’t signaled their support for the arrangement.
