This week we commemorate 30 years of agricultural research collaboration between Australia and Indonesia.

The Australian Embassy in Indonesia has issued a media release marking the occassion.

The Australian Ambassador to Indonesia, Mr Greg Moriarty, said Australia was committed to assisting Indonesia to achieve lasting food security and overcome poverty in rural areas.

“Through ACIAR-Indonesian partnerships, agriculture industries are creating opportunities for smallholder farmers to share in the country’s recent growth,” Mr Moriarty said.
