The Ambassador visits ACICIS
"I congratulate ACICIS for making this possible..."
Mr Greg Moriarty, the Australian Ambassador to Indonesia, paid a visit to the ACICIS programs in Yogyakarta on Wednesday 9 February 2011, spending the morning with partner universities and with the new semester students at their Orientation program. He said to the students:
Ambassador Moriarty was leading a group of eight senior embassy officials, including the Education Counsellor Marie Grealy, the Austrade Senior Trade Commissioner Leith Doody, two officers from the Indonesia Facility for Disaster Reduction, Matt Hayne and Henry Pirade, the First Secretary, Economic Section, Rachel Dunstone, the Deputy Director AEI Indonesia, Pingkan Umboh, and Angky Septiana from the Public Affairs Section, DFAT.
They had a round of calls in Yogya, including four ‘ACICIS stops’. Two of the calls were to Indonesian partner universities of ACICIS: Universitas Gadjah Mada and Universitas Sanata Dharma. The two universities fielded big teams of senior academics with Australia links. In both meetings the ACICIS programs were praised by the Indonesians and Australians as a key element in the web of links between Australia and these universities. The Embassy was looking to broaden the links with further educational cooperation, disaster management cooperation, and with news of a likely expansions in post-graduate scholarships.
After the calls on the two university leaderships, Greg Moriarty came to the Orientation for new students, about 32 students, and made a speech of welcome and congratulations. He said to them:
