PRESS RELEASE

 

Students have to focus on study and proactively socializing with Indonesian community as well as with the academic community. These were the statements made by Consul General Umar Hadi during his meeting with Permias on Saturday, 25 October 2014. In addition, he added the importance on developing network by joining as many as organizations possible, rather than focusing only one. Volunteering in public work can also nurture the expansion of network while developing more positive social reactions.

 

Umar Hadi also expressed his hope for full support from Permias to the Consulate.

 

Umar Hadi, who recently took the office of Consul General on 20 October 2014, asserted that the Consulate is currently striving to improve its work and service. In this case, working hard must be done to ensure that the Consulate delivers real benefits for Indonesians living in the United States as well as 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. Meanwhile, the Consulate must also work together, in collaboration, with all elements of the Indonesian communities, including with Permias as young generation blooming with ideas and innovations.

 

In response, Permias delivered some inputs regarding Consulate’s improvement, such as improving the self-report mechanism, which is currently not user friendly and working properly.

 

Embracing those ideas, Umar Hadi reiterated his hope that Permias could help develop better information technology system. This was a good opportunity to implement the knowledge and skill learned at school. “You can also make this as a school project,” said Umar Hadi. “Therefore, we are looking forward for your involvement”.
