Corrs Chambers Westgarth commits to strengthening Australia-Indonesia ties with CAUSINDY 2017

Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Australia’s leading independent law firms, is returning to support CAUSINDY for the fifth year in a row, affirming its long-standing commitment to forging strong partnerships between Australia and Indonesia.

“Programs like CAUSINDY play an important role in helping our lawyers to better understand Australia’s relationship with Indonesia, in turn helping them to add value to our clients,” said John W.H. Denton AO, CEO at Corrs Chambers Westgarth.

The Corrs and CAUSINDY partnership began in 2013 when Corrs joined with ANU to create an Asian Engagement Series designed to equip business executives with the knowledge they need to capitalise on emerging Asian markets.

John W.H. Denton AO, Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Corrs had also consistently supported CAUSINDY, having spoken at the conference in 2013, 2014 and again in 2017.

“These types of fora help to build long-standing relationships and friendships and perpetuate the long-term strength of the ties between our  two countries,” said Denton.

CAUSINDY is delighted to have Corrs return as a Sponsor of the 2017 conference to be held in Melbourne.

“The fantastic continuous support that Corrs has provided to CAUSINDY demonstrates its commitment to forging strong partnerships and driving economic engagement between Australia and Indonesia,” said Karina Akib, Co-Founder of CAUSINDY.

“We thank Corrs for their ongoing support and look forward to working together in Melbourne in a few months time,” Akib adds.

Corrs also has a wide range of partner law firms and international secondment destinations throughout the region, including in Jakarta.

 

Dining with Chief Minister of the Northern Territory

Last week, the Northern Territory Government paid a visit to Jakarta, Indonesia. During this month of Ramadan, CAUSINDY Alumni and Team in Jakarta had the honor to be invited for a break-fasting dinner with the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory, Hon. Michael Gunner.

 

We had an interesting and engaging discussion of how the Northern Territory could further foster the bilateral engagement between Australia and Indonesia. Some of the things discussed include trade, sports, education, and people-to-people engagement, especially the youth.

 

The Northern Territory Government has been an active supporter and sponsor of CAUSINDY since 2014, with CAUSINDY 2015 being held in Darwin.

 

We look forward to continuing our work with The Northern Territory Government in harnessing the progress of the bilateral relationship.
