Saturday Talk – Where is Indonesia Headed?

Date(s) - 18/11/2017
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Baylink Conference Room


The eleventh and last of this year’s program of Saturday Talks will be held on 18 November in the Community Room in the Baylink building at 2 Flora Crescent in Batemans Bay.

On this occasion Hal Hill, the Emeritus Professor of South East Asian Economies at the Australian National University, has chosen to speak on “Where is Indonesia Headed”?

In selecting this topic Professor Hill has said his talk will have a broad ‘development’ flavour – covering not just economic development in  Indonesia but its social and political development as well.

These are enormously important issues, not only for Indonesia but for Australia and the Asia-Pacific region generally. Geography makes Indonesia of key strategic significance to Australia, as does its huge population, its potential to become an economic powerhouse and the cultural differences which exist between our societies.

If you would like to learn more about where Indonesia is headed, head along to the Community Room by 10 am on 18 November. But space there is limited to about 40 people, so be sure to enrol  well beforehand by emailing Ross Thomas at, or if necessary by telephoning him at 0402 132 698.
