H.E. Mr. Paul Grigson was in Adelaide, Monday 25 July 2016, for an informal morning tea with the New Colombo Plan Alumni and Indonesian Australia Awards students around South Australia. The event was held at the Flinders University City Campus with opening remarks given by Mr. Sebastian Raneskold, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International), Flinders University. Australia is the number 1 country destination for Indonesian students to study abroad and the numbers are on the rise.
Australia Awards Awardees from three South Australian universities attended the morning tea, providing the event with a good insight on the landscape of Indonesian students and also Australian exchange students in Adelaide.
In addition to that, some of the Indonesian students representing Kajian Islam Adelaide (KIA) presented Mr. Paul with picture of KIA’s activities. KIA is one of the many organisations supported by the Indonesian students that aims to promote peace and mutual understanding between Indonesian and Australian communities.
GoLive Indonesia also took this opportunity to elaborate on the 3rd Indonesia Research Day – 12 August 2016, which highlights on-going research on Indonesia and presented Mr. Paul Grigson with a GoLive Indonesia official Polo shirt. Looking forward to pursuing collaborative effort in promoting discussions about Indonesia-Australia relations.
