The Victorian Government fosters Indonesia engagement with CAUSINDY partnership

The Victorian government is strengthening its engagement with Indonesia by supporting the Conference of Australian and Indonesian Youth (CAUSINDY) conference which will be held in Melbourne this October.

Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade Philip Dalidakis said the conference was a great chance to bring together future leaders from both countries to build cultural understanding and drive new collaborations.

“Victoria deeply values its strong relationship with Indonesia so we are proud to be supporting this event which will bring together young professionals from both countries,” he said.

“Indonesia is a key trading partner for Victoria, but more than that it is a close friend and the ties that we have across business, sports and the arts enrich our society and our economy.”

CAUSINDY recognises that Indonesia is becoming an increasingly important market for Victorian businesses and looks forward to facilitating a dialogue to strengthen ties.

“We’re deeply grateful for the Victorian Government’s support for CAUSINDY and we are very excited to host the conference in Melbourne” said Edgar Myer, Chief Operations Officer of CAUSINDY.

Indonesia is Victoria’s ninth largest merchandise export market and is the third largest export market for Victorian food products.

“As CAUSINDY enters its fifth year, we’re looking forward to introducing our delegates to Australia’s best food, arts and culture,” Myer said
