Jakarta

AIYA Jakarta is a non-government organisation run by both Australian and Indonesian young professionals in aims to strengthen the relationship between the two countries.

As the capital city of Jakarta is a centre of business activities, diverse ethnicities and races come together in this city of dreams full of promise. And so, AIYA did not think twice upon its decision to open a chapter in the city that never sleeps in 2013. Australia’s two-way trade with Indonesia was worth $14.6 billion in 2012, and as Indonesia’s economy continues to grow rapidly, there will be opportunities for many Australian businesses to benefit from forging a stronger relationship with their counterparts.
