2013 Indonesia-Australia Dialogue to be hosted by AIIA with CSIS

The 2013 Indonesia-Australia Dialogue will be held in Sydney on 3-4 March. The event is co-convened by Mr John McCarthy, National President of the Australian Institute for International Affairs (AIIA) and former Australian Ambassador to Indonesia, and Dr Rizal Sukma, Executive Director of the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Jakarta. The AIIA was selected by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to act as secretariat for the Dialogue.

The inaugural dialogue was held in Jakarta in 2011 with discussions covering domestic, regional and global issues and exploring opportunities for closer engagement in business, science and technology.
