Monash University’s Australia-Indonesia Centre (AIC) hosted “The Jokowi Era Seminar” in Melbourne on 12 November 2014 featuring a panel of academic experts and senior business leaders to discuss the new cabinet and the outlook for business in Indonesia.

In his presentation, Tom outlined the gravity of Indonesia's evolving oil import crisis and its ballooning opportunity cost to the nation. This is largely resultant from the country's poor positioning of itself as an attractive exploration investment destination.
