New Zealand Embassy Jakarta, Indonesia


From the Ambassador's blog:


I wrote recently about the year ahead for Indonesia, now it’s ASEAN’s turn.

Myanmar took charge in early January and will chair ASEAN meetings and processes for this calendar year.  They hosted their first meeting in Bagan in February – the ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Retreat (AMM).


Anzac Day Address, Jakarta, 25 April 2014
By New Zealand Ambassador David Taylor

Your Excellencies, my fellow Ambassadors, Indonesian Veterans and Government Officials, Defence Attaches, Teachers and children, Ladies and Gentlemen

Nga mate haere, haere, haere
Tatou te hunga ora tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa
The dead, farewell, farewell, farewell
To us, the living, greetings, greetings, greetings to us all.


I’ve written a few blogs on the education theme, but thought an update on some work streams might be worthwhile.


From the Ambassador's most recent blog post.


Indonesia’s new Ambassador to New Zealand, Jose Antonio Morato Tavares, presented his letter of credentials to New Zealand's Governor General, Jerry Mateparae, in Wellington on Wednesday.

In his opening remarks, Mateparae greeted Tavares in Indonesian, with the words “Yang Mulia, selamat datang ke Selandia Baru [Excellency, welcome to New Zealand].”

New Zealand looks forward to working with His Excellency Jose Tavares over the course of his term in New Zealand.


An online toolkit is now available for New Zealand exporters to help tell the New Zealand story overseas.


Last week the long-standing cooperation between the coffee growers in North Toraja Regency in Sulawesi, Indonesia, and a group of Canterbury farmers, many of whom are from Selwyn District in New Zealand, was recognised with the signing of a Sister District Agreement between the two districts.


The African Union Handbook 2014 is a comprehensive guide to the African Union system and how it works.


The New Zealand Government has recently developed a new scholarships scheme for New Zealand students, entitled 'Prime Minister's Scholarships for Asia' - worth NZ $9 million over 5 years. These scholarships are designed to encourage New Zealanders to study at universities throughout Asia.

Students will gain valuable experience in a thriving and vibrant region, helping them to develop skills to prosper in the global economy, and increase New Zealand's links with the world.
