(2/14/2005)

Indonesia's national carrier Garuda Indonesia was recognized for its generosity in support of Tsunami devastation relief at a New South Wales State Parliamentary function held in Sydney on Wednesday, February 9, 2005.

The airline – which has flown 32 tons of relief supplies and 5 volunteer workers from Australia to Aceh free of charge – was a top level Diamond Sponsor of the New South Wales Parliamentary event hosted by John Mills MP, Chairman of Committees.

More than A$170,000 (approximately US$134,000) was raised by the Corporate Australia Cares – Indonesia Tsunami Appeal - jointly organized by the Indonesian Consulate General in Sydney, the Australia Indonesia Business Council, the Indonesian Community Council and supported by the Australian Chinese Charity Foundation.

Minister Anwar: OZ and RI Have Never Been Closer

A special guest at the event, the visiting Indonesian Finance Minister, Mr Yusuf Anwar, said his country had never been closer to Australian than in the time since the Tsunami, the response to which he said was a triumph of the human spirit.

Guest Auctioneer, Mr Michael Photios, offered special thanks to Garuda Indonesia for its support throughout the tsunami relief and fundraising, which culminated with an auction of a Garuda Indonesia Executive Class and 2 Economy Class trips to Bali with accommodation courtesy of the Four Seasons group, organized by Garuda Orient Holidays. This prize, and another package with accommodation at the Sheraton Laguna in Bali, raised more than $A5,000 (approximately US$3,950) at the Parliamentary Function attended by more than 300 people.

Mr Iriansyah Antemas, General Manager for Garuda Indonesia for New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, received a plaque recognizing Garuda Indonesia's assistance, which Indonesian Consul General in Sydney, Mr Wardana, said will contribute directly to the people of Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam and North Sumatra in rebuilding their lives and future.
