In the history of bilateral relations of Indonesia and People’s Republic of China, the fate of Chinese ethnicity in Indonesia (Tionghoa)has always been a major aspect. The rlations between the two countries were good in the Old Order but worsened in the New Order. Hubungan bilateral kedua negarasempat baik di masa Orde Lama dan memburuk di Era Orde Baru. After the monetary crisis and the May 1988 phenomena, Indonesia under Abdurrahman Wahid created policy regarding Tionghoa people. Not long after, the relations between Indonesia and China expanded massively in many sectors. This research’s purpose is to find whethere there had been a relation between Indonesia’s policy toward Tionghoa to the bilateral relations between Indonesia and China. Using the Image Theory, it is found that the change of image of Indonesia affected the policy made by China, and the fact that China viewed Tionghoa as their diaspora helped China to response reciprocally to Indonesia’ treatment to Tionghoa.
