Founded in 1989, the Australia-Indonesia Institute (AII) continues to develop relations between Australia and Indonesia by promoting greater mutual understanding of cultures and customs through a variety of programs and grant opportunities. The AII is part of the International Relations Grants Program (IRGP) that supports the Government's foreign and trade policies and projects a positive contemporary image of Australia. IRGP grants support professional, community and institutional linkages between Australia and its partners on issues of shared interest, including the arts, media, education, business, science, technology and sport. The AII's core activities include: • encouraging the study of the Indonesian language and culture in Australia and the English language and Australian culture in Indonesia, • enhancement of commercial and institutional linkages between Australia and Indonesia, • identifying possible cooperation opportunities in science and technology, • facilitation of media exchanges, and • sponsoring cultural and sporting exchanges and training.
