Australia Awards program with Indonesian Finance Ministry officials on strengthening the public policy process

In late October, I felt honoured to deliver workshops on economic forecasting and industry policy to officials from the Indonesian Ministry of Finance. The officials were recipients of Australia Awards from the Australian Government and were visiting Brisbane to attend a two-week short course on Strengthening the Public Policy Process, which was held at the University of Queensland (UQ). The short course, which was organised by UQ International Development, also featured institutional visits to the Queensland Treasury in Brisbane and the Australian Treasury and Productivity Commission in Canberra. The Australia Awards program is a terrific way for our country to be a good international citizen, and for Australia and other countries to learn from each others’ experiences, and to enhance international cooperation and mutual understanding.
