Head of OSGA, Professor Gerry, welcomed the Governor to OSGA at St Antony’s College, where the Governor delivered an entertaining public lecture detailing the remarkable transformation of public transport in Jakarta during the last 5 years.

After a lively Q&A, the delegation moved on for dinner at Balliol College, where discussions continued about the potential for collaboration and cooperation with OSGA’s emerging Centre for Southeast Asian Studies.
