The AIYA Yogyakarta Chapter aims to connect, inspire and inform Australians and Indonesians about opportunities to engage in the bilateral relationship. We hope to build a strong network of students, volunteers and young professionals who can encourage, learn from and support one another to become the next generation of leaders in the Australia-Indonesia relationship.
