Strengthening Australia’s relations with East Java and Central Java
Welcome to the website of the Australian Consulate-General in Surabaya.
Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Julie Bishop MP, announced the establishment of the Australian Consulate-General in Surabaya 26 February 2017, Australia’s fourth and newest diplomatic post in Indonesia.
The Consulate-General promotes business, education, people-to-people and cultural links between Australia and Central Java and East Java.
The Consulate-General has a strong focus on building economic partnership opportunities in East Java, including in financial services, education, health, manufacturing and infrastructure. East Java accounts for about 15 per cent of Indonesia’s gross domestic product and Surabaya, as Indonesia’s second largest city, is an increasingly important destination for Australian trade and investment.
