Indonesia Mini Update: Sam Roggeveen interviews Jason Allford and Moekti Soejachmoen

On 23 September the Lowy Institute for International Policy, in cooperation with the Indonesia Project at the Australian National University, hosted a 'Mini Update on Indonesia'. The Indonesia Update has been an annual event in Canberra since 1983. This is the eighth time we have held a Sydney version.

This Update evaluated the latest developments in the Indonesian economy and political system, as well as regional developments.

Following the event we chatted with some of the participants about the papers they presented. 

This conversation features Sam Roggeveen, editor of the Lowy Institute's Interpreter blog, speaking with Jason Allford from the Australian Treasury and Indonesia economist Dr Moekti Soejachmoen about the current state of the Indonesian economy.
