From the AIC

A passion for the bilateral relationship. Remembering Harold Mitchell AC and his work in bringing together the people and cultures of Australia and Indonesia

The Australia-Indonesia Centre has lost one of its most committed and cherished supporters with the unexpected death of businessman and philanthropist Harold Mitchell AC. For ten years Harold helped steer the AIC as chair of its advisory board. He was the inaugural and founding chair since the board was formed in April 2014 and his work and personality touched many.
