Causindy Welcomes the Australian Embassy Jakarta and Australia Awards as a Sponsor


CAUSINDY is pleased to announce that the Australian Embassy Jakarta – through the Australia Awards in Indonesia program – will be supporting the conference again as a Sponsor in 2016.

Australia Awards in Indonesia is the largest and longest running scholarships program offered by the Australian Government to any partner country. Since the 1950s Australian Government scholarships have offered the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia. Over the past decade around 4,000 Indonesians have received an Australia Awards scholarship.

The Australian Embassy Jakarta is expanding its engagement with Australian alumni who have returned to Indonesia, including those that have self-funded their study.

CAUSINDY is proud to partner with an organisation that has such a strong involvement in developing people-to people links between Australia and Indonesia and is excited to welcome Australian Alumni – including this year’s delegates – to the conference.

CAUSINDY is delighted to announce that for the fourth year in a row, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, one of Australia’s leading independent law firms, will be returning to support this year’s conference as a Minor Sponsor. Corrs is committed to forging strong partnerships throughout our region, and in the process driving economic engagement between Asia and Australia.

Corrs has a variety of initiatives to drive such partnerships. In 2013, 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.

We thank Corrs for their ongoing support and look forward to working together in Bali in a few months time.

ACICIS partners with CAUSINDY


CAUSINDY is delighted to welcome back the Australian Consortium for In-Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS) as a partner of the conference. ACICIS is a non-profit national education consortium charged with developing and co-ordinating high quality, semester-long and short course study programs for Australian students at Indonesian partner universities. Since its foundation in 1994, ACICIS has sent over 2,000 participants to universities around Indonesia, prior to which almost no Australian students had undertaken semester long study in Indonesia for credit at their own institution in Australia. A number of ACICIS alumni have gone on to become CAUSINDY delegates, and we look forward to working together again in 2016 to further bilateral engagement.

CAUSINDY, is thrilled to welcome the Northern Territory Government back as a major sponsor for 2016.

CAUSINDY 2016 proves to be the biggest, and most exciting yet with new speakers, new delegates and a new location. This wouldn’t be possible without the generous support from the Northern Territory Government – and the CAUSINDY team thanks the Government, and congratulates them on the continued success of their Asian engagement strategy.

In 2016 CAUSINDY is going to Bali, and the theme will be ‘sustaining the relationship.Advancing the contemporary Australia-Indonesia relationship requires working beyond politics and traditional concepts and tapping into new areas of cooperation. CAUSINDY will explore how the two countries can cultivate stronger links between our people, private sectors, creative industries, civil societies and media.

This follows CAUSINDY 2015, which was held in Darwin. Darwin provided an incredible and unique experience for delegates, speakers and the CAUSINDY organising team. It was an experience no one will be forgetting soon.
