Presented by ANU College of Business & Economics

The New Indonesia: Vision for the Future

With the largest economy in Southeast Asia, vast resources, rich diversity, and a population of young, dynamic, and digital-savvy population, Indonesia represents enormous opportunities for global relations and commerce. Nevertheless, the role and potential of Indonesia in an increasingly interconnected world have often been overlooked and underrated.

The event will feature a panel discussion with ANU alumni, who will examine the bright future for Indonesia, share their optimism and highlight challenges across public, private, and non-profit domains, and define the place of the nation in the global community.

Food stalls and refreshments will be provided following the event whilst you network.
