Victorian Government supports CAUSINDY

vic_LogoThis week, we’re excited to announce the Victorian Government’s support for CAUSINDY in 2014. We’ll be working with them to host one of the conference’s flagship events – the business debate and networking evening.

Conference delegates and guests are invited to a business debate between leading business figures John Denton and John Riady. The two influential individuals will put forward their views on what it takes to be a successful businessman in each country. Afterwards, the delegates and guests will enjoy a taste of some of Victorian best gourmet food and wine.

The Government of Victoria has recently reopened a representative office in Jakarta, led by Mr Brett Stevens, the Commissioner to Indonesia. The purpose of the office is to develop and encourage bilateral commercial activities between Indonesia and Victoria
The office was opened mid-2013 as part of Victoria’s Super Trade Mission to South East Asia, where premier Denis Napthine accompanied 450 delegates representing 300 Victorian businesses.

The Government of Victoria identifies four key focus areas that provide opportunities between Victorian organisations and Indonesia: infrastructure and urban development; education and training; food security and health and aged care.

Given the high potential and importance of Indonesia and Australia’s collaboration in the food industry, it’s only fitting the Victorian Government is supporting CAUSINDY in showcasing some of the best of Victoria’s gourmet products.

We thank the Victorian Government for their support and are looking forward to the business debate and networking event.
