I'm in bustling Jakarta for a few days, and earlier today I sat down with Australian Ambassador to Indonesia, Bill Farmer, who took up his posting in 2005 and is set to leave in July (his successor has not been announced, though there are strong rumours that Duncan Lewis will get the nod).

I started by asking him about the highlights of his term in Jakarta; then we got into some discussion of the business environment in Indonesia for foreign companies, and the implications of the recent resignation of reformist Finance Minister Sri Mulyani.

My thanks to the DFAT staff at the Embassy for making this happen.
