The Western Australian Government has extended its 17-year relationship with the Indonesian province of East Java today.

More than 35 government officials from East Java, including Governor Imam Utomo, joined Premier Alan Carpenter in Perth to officially re-sign the Western Australian - East Java Sister-State Province Memorandum of Understanding.

The Premier welcomed the five-year extension to the Sister-State relationship and said it would enhance the already strong affiliation that existed between the State and East Java.

“The re-signing of this Memorandum of Understanding will further strengthen and expand mutually beneficial ties between Western Australia and East Java,” Mr Carpenter said.

“In the past, this relationship has helped to facilitate many cultural exchanges as well as promote Australia’s overall relationship with Indonesia.

“The re-signing of the Western Australian - East Java Sister-State Province Memorandum of Understanding demonstrates the State Government’s commitment and support to expanding the relationship.”

Mr Carpenter said a unique range of initiatives were being developed under the agreement within the areas of agriculture and trade, investment, environmental management, social welfare, arts and alternative energy industries.

He said the agreement would encourage cultural activities including charitable and artistic exchanges as well as commercial exchanges such as trade missions that would help increase trade and investment opportunities.

Whilst in Perth, East Java’s Governor will accompany Indonesian Consul Dr Aloysius Madja in officially opening the Indonesian Guest Nation pavilion at this year’s Perth Royal Show.

More than 200 Indonesian delegates have accompanied the Governor on his visit to Perth to take part in the guest nation program at the show.

The Indonesian-themed pavilion will include exhibits and performances such as interactive workshops in batik and wood carving, live music, theatrical performances, a traditional herbal spa and traditional Indonesian cuisine.

The Indonesian pavilion, themed ‘Discover a New Indonesia’, will give visitors the opportunity to explore Indonesian culture, as well as business and investment opportunities.

The guest nation initiative, established in 2002, is administered by the Department of Industry and Resources.

The Perth Royal Show runs from September 29 to October 6 at the Claremont Showgrounds.
