Launched in 2018, the Indonesia Matters for America/America Matters for Indonesia project is a comprehensive and multi-activity effort to demonstrate and track Indonesia’s importance to the United States, and the United States’ importance to Indonesia.

Emphasis is placed on generating and disseminating user-friendly analysis and visual graphics – on both quantitative and qualitative data – making it useful to political leaders, policymakers, business people, analysts, media, and students.

Funding for this project was provided by the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Washington, DC.

East-West Center

The East-West Center promotes better relations and understanding among the people and nations of the United States, Asia, and the Pacific through cooperative study, research, and dialogue. Established by the US Congress in 1960, the Center serves as a resource for information and analysis on critical issues of common concern, bringing people together to exchange views, build expertise, and develop policy options. The Center’s Washington, DC office focuses on preparing the United States for an era of growing Asia Pacific prominence.

The Center is an independent, public, nonprofit organization with funding from the US government, and additional support provided by private agencies, individuals, foundations, corporations, and governments in the region.
