Message from Consul-General Richard Mathews

Strengthening Australia’s relations with Eastern Indonesia

We are excited about the prospects for developing Australia’s relations with the provinces of Eastern Indonesia and so are keen to establish a range of networks, drawing on the existing skills, knowledge and experiences of people from both our countries. We see great potential for building stronger trade and investment links, strengthening connections between schools and educational institutions in Eastern Indonesia and Australia, drawing on researcher and academic experiences, and further expanding our growing alumni groups.

Throughout 2016-17 we plan to visit all eleven provinces in Eastern Indonesia and establish or build on these networks. Stay tuned for further news on our plans for growing the relationships between Australia and Eastern Indonesia. In the meantime, follow us on twitter: @KonJenMakassar.
