As part of the record on Indonesia’s South-South and Triangular Cooperation in 2014, the National Coordination Team on SSTC (NCT) formally launched an Annual Report of Indonesia`s  South-South and Triangular Cooperation on 14 December 2014 at Sari Pan Pacific Hotel attended by the four pillar members of the NCT, line ministries/institutions, implementing agencies and JICA CADEP Project Team.  The objectives of this report are to present the Government of Indonesia’s positioning towards its SSTC, appeal Indonesian potentials on SSTC, increase domestic supporters of SSTC among varieties of people, and globally show the GOI’s commitments to development cooperation.
