Understanding Indonesia: Does It Really Matter?
I will begin with the current development in Indonesia followed by the opportunities for Australians, and how important it is to know more about Indonesia, supported by some quantitative data. It's time to make long term investment, to strengthen our relationship and the best approach is through understanding language and culture.

This presentation outlines all the positive and optimistic factors in the current situation which we have labelled "the age of uncertainty" and discusses ways to lift Indonesian language study out of its current recession.
