SIF Connects! Jakarta
More than 100 SIF alumni, partners and new Friends of Singapore (FOS) gathered in Jakarta for the sixth edition of SIF Connects! in Indonesia on 28 May 2016.
Sharing their insights from the inaugural SIF-Indonesia Bright Foundation (IBF)-Indonesian Professionals’ Association (IPA) study visit to Singapore in December 2015, four IBF scholars highlighted the success of the first SIF-IBF-IPA collaboration in education.
The event also celebrated the growth of partnerships and friendships between Singaporean and Indonesian communities that led to the SIF-IBF-IPA collaboration in education being enhanced and renewed for another two years. Further underscoring the enduring relationships between the two communities, Mochammad Nunung Kurniawan (Iwan) was re-appointed as SIF’s representative in Jakarta for a third term at the event. The strong turnout of FOS, the renewals of the second SIF-IBF-IPA collaboration in education and Iwan’s tenure as SIF’s representative in Jakarta collectively reflect the strength of ties between Singaporeans and Indonesians, and the power of such networks in enabling collaborations to enrich lives and effect positive change.
