Australia's Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has announced the appointment of Bruce Cowled as the new Consul-General to Bali.

Cowled, the former Acting Assistant Secretary to the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Finance Services, will replace Brent Hall who has served as the Consul-General since January 2003.

Bruce Cowled

Married with two sons and a daughter, Mr. Cowled holds an Advanced Diploma of Foreign Affairs and Trade from Deakin University. Prior to his last posting as an Assistant Secretary in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr. Cowled held a variety of positions in Canberra including Director, Financial Services Section (2002-05), Executive Officer, Evaluation and Audit Section (2000-02), and Executive Officer, Internal Audit Section (1995-96).

A man with extensive overseas experience, Mr Cowled has served overseas as First Secretary, Australian Embassy, The Hague (1997-2000), First Secretary, Australian High Commission, Bandar Seri Begawan (1991-94), First Secretary, Australian Consulate-General, Chicago (1987-91), First Secretary, Australian Embassy, Mexico City (1985-87), First Secretary, Australian Embassy, Santiago de Chile (1981-85), Second Secretary, Australian Consulate-General, San Francisco (1979-81), Second Secretary, Australian Embassy, New Delhi (1977-79) and Attache, Australian Embassy, Manila (1973-76).

Mr Cowled joined the then Department of External Affairs in 1969.

Brent Hall to East Timor

Mr. Hall will reportedly assume a new posting at the Australian Embassy in Dili, Timor Leste.

During Mr. Hall's tenure the Consul-General's role in Bali has undergone a number of significant changes including a relocation to more secure premises following the 2003 attack on the Australian Embassy in Jakarta and the permanent posting of Australian Federal Police (AFP) officers at the Bali Consulate

In announcing the new appointment, Mr. Downer underlined that Australia's links with Bali were an important part of its broader relationship with Indonesia.

The terrorist attacks in Bali in 2002 and 2005 have underscored the importance of continued close cooperation between Australia and Indonesia to combat terrorism," he said.

"Our consulate-general and Balinese authorities have worked together intensely following both of the Bali bombings.

"This partnership underscores the very substantial, longstanding and wide-ranging links between our governments, peoples and business communities."

The Bali Consulate-General office provides consular and passport services to Australians in Bali, and to Canadian nationals under an agreement for the sharing of consular responsibilities.
