New Zealand Embassy Jakarta, Indonesia
The Ambassador's Blog: Indonesia New Zealand Maju Bersama – Advancing Together
From the Ambassador’s blog: http://blogs.mfat.govt.nz/david-taylor/indonesia-new-zealand-maju-bersam...
There’s been a lot of effort over recent years to build ties between Indonesia and New Zealand. And a lot of success too, though there are areas where I’m sure we can do a lot better.
We decided it was time to try and wrap a brand around what we’re doing together. The team at the New Zealand Embassy, both the kiwis and our leading local staff, came up with the phrase “maju bersama” or “advancing together”.
We plan to use “maju bersama” as a tag around initiatives that we will take this year.
In recent weeks, for example, we used the tag around:
•Participation of musician Bella Kalolo in Java Jazz 2014
•New Zealand Education Fairs in Surabaya and Jakarta
•Renewable Energy Forum in Jakarta
•Gala Dinner focused on renewable energy and education partners at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Jakarta
•Participation of Te Puia Māori kapahaka group in various Tourism NZ, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise and other events
•New Zealand Food Connection event at Dharmawangsa Hotel, Jakarta
•University of Auckland alumni event in Jakarta
Over the rest of 2014, we will be doing a range of other events and promotions where we will talk about, promote and celebrate “maju bersama”. These events will form a New Zealand season in Indonesia that we hope will continue to benefit the bonds between our nations as we advance together.
“Maju bersama” – it’s the only way to go!!!
