I recently spent a fortnight in New Zealand. This was not only a good opportunity to enjoy the brilliant late summer weather in Wellington, Dunedin and Auckland, but also a chance to connect with a wide range of businesses with interests in Indonesia.


Statement issued by Ambassador of New Zealand, H.E. Mr David Taylor

23 February 2013

"On behalf of the New Zealand government, I wish to convey sympathy to Indonesia over the killings of eight soldiers and four civilians in Papua province on 21 February. I extend deepest condolences to the families of those slain.


One of the most important aspects of an Embassy’s work is the provision of consular services and support. When New Zealanders get into trouble, we need to respond quickly. The safe travel website ( provides a lot of helpful information to think about before travelling and when something goes wrong. It’s the obvious first place to go for information and advice, and is the official source of advice for New Zealanders travelling or living overseas.

When Achmad Fadhiel stepped off a plane in Auckland in 1983, the eighteen year old had been preparing to study abroad for years by learning, not English, but German. After his original plan to study in Germany fell through, Fadhiel ended up in New Zealand through a twist of fate. “I had heard of the country, but was planning to apply to the Austrian Embassy. It was closed that day and the New Zealand Embassy was then on the same street Jalan Diponegoro so I decided to go in,” Fadhiel says.


As a close friend and partner with deep expertise in disaster management, New Zealand has sought to strengthen cooperation in this field with Indonesia since 2004. Our contribution to the Multi Donor Fund was the largest we ever made for a single disaster.


One of the sad realities of big cities is that there are children living on the margins. But the upside is that there is often people wanting to help them. A generous donation of land by Susi Sabar in Pasir Angin, Cpiayaung, enabled Puspita to consider expanding last year with the development of a two storey 120m2 building that will host the Foundation’s “English Camp” activity. This will be a base for teaching English as well as practical skills.
