Alumni news



King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima will visit Indonesia from March 10 – March 13, at the invitation of President Joko Widodo. The state visit will be accompanied by an economic mission in which 130 companies will participate. The visit ‘affirms the close, wide-ranging relationship between the two countries’, according to the official press release on the Royal House’s website.

During the visit, the delegation will be introduced to Indonesian professionals who have studied in the Netherlands and are now contributing to trade, investment and economic growth in both countries. Holland Alumni in Indonesia are a great asset in enriching the bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and the Netherlands. The Holland alumni network includes thousands of Indonesian professionals. Every year, over 500 Indonesian students returning from their studies in the Netherlands join the network.

On the first day of the state visit, the Royal couple will meet Tissa Aunilla, who studied in Utrecht. Tissa is founder of the chocolate factory Pipiltin Cocoa, which works with Indonesian farmers on quality assurance and a sustainable production process.

During a trade lunch in Jakarta, the business delegation will meet Holland Alumni who currently work as professional and reliable service providers in the areas of finance, tax legal, HR and business development.

Ika Agustin, who participated in the Dutch Training and Exposure Programme (DUTEP), is currently heading the Flood Management Department of the Water Resource Agency in Jakarta. During the dinner she will exchange ideas and experiences with the Royal couple and Dutch ministers on how to solve Jakarta’s water management problems.
