Global Stringer

Editor's note: "Ambassadors' China Story" is a series about former ambassadors to China who share their China stories through old photos and mementos, providing details of their experiences through their own eyes. 

Imron Cotan served as the Indonesian ambassador to China from 2010 to 2013. Cycling is his favorite hobby. Among the many places he has been to, Beijing is his favorite city. 

During his tenure in China, the trade volume between China and Indonesia rose from $1.2 billion to $5 billion, making a huge contribution to the economic exchanges between the two countries.

Cotan is a Jackie Chan fan and has seen almost all of his movies. While still in China, he was lucky and happy to meet Chan at a charity dinner. Now the ambassador's term is over, but he believes that if time permits, he will travel back to China every year.
