Centre strengthens Australia-Indonesia ties

The new Australia-Indonesia centre has been established to improve understanding, education, business links and research projects between the two countries.

The centre, based at Monash University’s Caulfield campus, is a collaboration with institutions including the University of Melbourne, the Australian National University, the University of Sydney and CSIRO.

The centre aims to strengthen Australia’s relationship with Indonesia while identifying opportunities for collaborative research in areas such as food, agriculture, health, infrastructure and water.

Government, business and academia will all be involved.

Australian Prime Minister The Hon. Tony Abbott MP launched the centre in Canberra in November 2013 and has committed $15 million over four years to the project.
