PRESS RELEASE

 

Consul General: Work Hard, Work Prudently, and Work Together for All

 

“The Consulate and I are committed to work hard, to work prudently, and to work together in serving all Indonesians and Indonesia’s interests,” said Consul General Umar Hadi at the celebration of 8th anniversary of Gereja Masehi Internasional Minahasa (GMIM-USA) held in Fontana, Southern California, on Sunday, 26 October 2014.

 

Umar Hadi, who recently took the office of Consul General on 20 October 2014, asserted that working hard must be done to ensure that the consulate remains relevant and brings about real benefits for Indonesians living in the United States as well as more than 250 million Indonesians at home. Working prudently is also a must, in order to ensure that the consulate is run in an orderly, efficient, and corruption-free manner. Good governance is a necessity, not an option. The consulate must also work together, in collaboration, with all elements of the Indonesian communities, including the many Indonesian churches in the area, based on the spirit of “gotong royong” and kinship.

 

Having introduced himself as the new Consul General, Umar Hadi also congratulated GMIM-USA for its 8th anniversary. The church’s commitment to promote a multi-cultural church that serves both its congregation and the unity among Indonesians is highly appreciated.

“Close cooperation between the consulate and all Indonesian groups and communities, including Indonesian churches such as GMIM-USA, must be continuously maintained and strengthened for the interests of every one,” said Umar Hadi.
