Abstract/Notes ABSTRACT This thesis discusses the neely realized China's panda diplomacy towards Indonesia in 2017. China's Panda diplomacy towards Indonesia has been initiated since 2008 and officially offered by Chinese President, Hu Jintao to the Indonesian President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) in 2010 that is when the two countries celebrate the 60th "Year of Chinese-Indonesian Friendship." However, the realization of panda diplomacy has continued to experience delays since 2015. Until then, the new panda diplomacy was only actualized by China on September 28, 2017. Indonesia accepted the arrival of two Chinese pandas named Cai Tao and Hu Chun who now reside in Taman Safari Indonesia, Bogor. Using the concept of modern diplomacy, this thesis argues that panda diplomacy is fundamentally a part of efforts to manage a more harmonious and stronger China's bilateral relations with Indonesia. This is in accordance with the characteristics of panda diplomacy as part of Chinese foreign policy which symbolizes a close relationship of cooperation and friendship. Whereas the China’s decision which has only realized the panda diplomacy against Indonesia in 2017, can be analyzed using a two-good theory. At that time, there was an urgency for China to "maintain" relations and close bilateral cooperation with Indonesia amid threats arising from the disputes between the two countries in the Natuna Waters region.
