Indonesian President Joko Widodo will meet his United States counterpart Barack Obama in Washington on Monday (Oct 26)
The focus of his visit is largely trade and investment, but other issues from security to human rights are likely to feature when Mr Widodo meets Mr Obama at the White House.
The White House has yet to release an agenda for the meeting, but Mr Obama's staff have said he is looking forward to this visit by the Indonesian President, as it presents an opportunity for the US and Indonesia to form a stronger partnership.
Mr Widodo, who is also known as Jokowi in Indonesia, has faced a number of challenges in his first year in office and those will likely be the top topics of conversation during this meeting with Mr Obama.
Climate change will likely be top of the agenda as Indonesia continues to struggle with the forest fires that are blanketing the region in smog. With the Paris summit on climate change on the horizon, this will be a key point of discussion for Mr Obama.
The US President did live in Indonesia for about five years when he was a child so it may be easy for these two leaders to find common ground, but the main thrust of the meeting is to make their partnership stronger.
Mr Widodo will also stop by Silicon Valley, where he will visit Google and Apple – with the aim trying to extend internet access within Indonesia. The World Bank puts internet penetration in Indonesia at 17 per cent of its 250 million population, a statistic Mr Widodo wants to improve.
Apple is also interested in opening a research and development facility Indonesia – which presents Mr Widodo with the kind of foreign investment catch he has been eyeing out for since assuming office in 2014.
