Stiffan Djami: President
Stiffan began promoting his role on Australia-Indonesia’s bilateral relations since 2009, when he participated in Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP) 2009/10. The AIYEP 2009/10 took place in Perth and Margaret River, Western Australia. The AIYEP program aims to improve people-to-people contact between these two nations through youths and cultures. He works at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, at the Directorate General of Information and Public Diplomacy. In 2014, he was sent by Indonesia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to Consulate General of Indonesia in Perth, Western Australia. Thus, Australia is not a new thing for him. Currently, he is undertaking his Master in International Trade and Development at the University of Adelaide. Stiffan had done internship at RTR Radio 92.1 FM in Perth, WA as well as taught Bahasa Indonesia at Margaret River Primary School in Margaret River, WA. Stiffan believes that AIYA could help improve better understandings and stronger bilateral relations between Australia and Indonesia.
