    27 May 2020: Indonesia’s international education potential

    27 May 2020: Indonesia’s international education potential

    International education is Australia’s largest services export, valued at $35.2 billion, and its vulnerabilities have been exposed in its reliance on bringing students onshore.

    Some institutions and businesses have seen an opportunity and patiently created a presence offshore, including in Indonesia. So how can Indonesia be part of the sector’s recovery? What are the key challenges faced in capturing opportunities in the country? Will the impact of COVID19 force a re-think in a sector that has been struggling with market diversity? How can Australia’s education providers successfully navigate those challenges?

    Our expert panel of education leaders explored these questions from the lens of three key areas – higher education, vocational education and training, and education technology.

    Panelists:
    - Rongyu Li, Deputy Vice Chancellor (External Engagement) @ UQ
    - Janelle Chapman, Executive Director @ TAFE Queensland
    - Adam Brimo, CEO @ OpenLearning

    The coronavirus pandemic has tested local governments in their ability to respond to social and economic threats that have come at them at a fast pace.

    While a national government broadly sets the response agenda, provincial and city governments have been required to implement testing models, work with health specialists, support business and ensure the most vulnerable are cared for. This cross conversation on what has been done and what needs to be done further will bring in the experiences so far of a city of five million and province of 48.6 million.

    Panelists:
    - Sally Capp, the Lord Mayor of the City of Melbourne
    - Ridwan Kamil, Governor of West Java Province
    - Dr Bima Arya, the Mayor of Bogor
