Indonesia and the Netherlands Continue to Develop Cooperation in Education

Alumni news



­Indonesia and the Netherlands will continue to further develop cooperation in education, including capacity building and individual scholarships. This was the main issue discussed at the Panel Discussion “Indonesia-Netherlands Diplomacy Through Education and Culture: Moving Forward Together” in Jakarta last Friday, April 6, 2018.

The discussion featured Din Wahid, the newly appointed Attaché of Education and Culture of the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in the Netherlands (KBRI Den Haag) and Sarah Spronk, Education Advisor of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Indonesia.

Din Wahid further expressed his idea to encourage universities outside Java island to establish or develop cooperation with Dutch higher institutions. On the other hand, Sarah Spronk would like to see more linkage between the Holland alumni and private sectors, such as Dutch companies in Indonesia.

Moderated by Marrik Bellen, Director of Leiden University Representative Office in Jakarta, the panel also discussed the challenges in establishing cooperation with education institutions.

The event was attended by alumni who had organisational experience in the Indonesian Students Association, including the secretary generals of PPI Belanda and chairmans of PPI in Dutch cities in the last two years.
