Tweet Share Share Indonesian Ambassador to Dominica, Prianti Gagarin Djatmiko SinggihNew Indonesian Ambassador to Dominica, Her Excellency Prianti Gagarin Djatmiko Singgih has congratulated the Government of Dominica on its progress made at achieving Universal Secondary Education as well as its success in meeting some of the Millennium Development Goals.The Indonesian Ambassador made those remarks during her official presentation of credentials to Dominica’s Head of State, His Excellency Dr. Nicholas Liverpool on Wednesday July 18, 2012.“I would like to congratulate the Government of Dominica on this achievement of the Millennium Development Goals in accomplishing Universal Secondary Education by 83%, reducing extreme poverty from 39% in 2003 to 28.8% in 2009, improving national health and reducing child mortality”.Indonesia stands firm behind a policy that education is the foundation of a better human resource. Dominica established diplomatic relations with the Republic of Indonesia in April of 1994. Throughout the years of relations the Government of Indonesia has offered annual cultural scholarships to Dominican youth to pursue studies in Indonesia. The new ambassador confirms that this collaboration will continue.“Given the encouraging response starting from 2011, the Government of Indonesia has offered Dominican students a scholarship program called, “Developing Countries Partnerships Scholarship” in order to obtain graduate and post graduate degrees in various fields of study in the most prestigious universities throughout Indonesia.”The new Indonesian Ambassador to Dominica says the Indonesian Government is looking forward to heightened relations between the both countries through other training opportunities.“Another way in which we can increase our people to people interaction is through our diplomatic corps. In this regard, as former head for [the] Centre for Education and Training in the Ministry of Education in Indonesia, we would like very much to offer diplomatic training for mid- career diplomas and as such we will be discussing this with your Ministry of Education here.”Like Dominica, tourism is one of the most important aspects in Indonesia’s national revenues. The Indonesian Ambassador to Dominica said that the Government of Indonesia has developed a special “creative economy” program to boost the numbers of tourist coming to Indonesia. She noted that this program is also geared at encouraging villages in Indonesia to become attractive destinations for tourists by promoting customs, value and culture.Ambassador Singgih said for the year 2012, her government has targeted two hundred villages to develop into touristic destinations. The new Ambassador is hoping that the Ministry of Tourism in Dominica will seek to pattern on tourism initiatives adopted by tourism authorities in Indonesia to boost the islands tourist product.“I think it’s an honor to offer the Government of Dominica a chance to have learning experiences in the enhancement of its tourism industry especially in the development of diversification of tourism destination, such as developing touristic villages similar to Indonesia, and the development of human resources in collaboration with the Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association- (D.H.T.A).”The new Indonesian Ambassador during her exchanges with the Dominican Head of State pledged continued good relations between both countries.“The Indonesian Government would like to maintain this relationship as well as heighten cooperation to more concrete and mutually beneficial cooperation.”In accepting the letters of credentials from new Indonesian Ambassador to Dominica, His Excellency Liverpool expressed confidence that the new Ambassador will continue the work of her predecessors in further strengthening the bonds of friendship and cooperation between Dominica and the Republic of Indonesia.Government Information Service
MORE: Tiger Woods results from Round 3 of the U.S. OpenDespite not being one of those familiar names, Woodland was ranked 25th in the world coming into the third major of the season A former University of Kansas golfer, Woodland turned professional in 2007 and joined the PGA Tour in 2009. In 10 years on the Tour, Woodland has won three events, most recently at the 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open in a playoff over Chez Reavie, who is also in contention this weekend.Entering his Saturday tee time, Woodland hadn’t bogeyed in 27 consecutive holes. Although not new on the Tour, excelling at major tournaments is a recent development for the Delray Beach, Fla., resident.Woodland recorded his first top-10 finish in a major last year at the PGA Championship after entering Round 3 with the solo lead. He was paired with Tiger Woods in the final round before fading to a tie for sixth place. At this year’s PGA Championship at Bethpage Black, Woodland finished tied for eighth. Before his 2018 PGA Championship performance, Woodland had gone 27 majors in a row without a top-10. In one of golf’s biggest tournaments of the year, at one of the most iconic courses in the world, and with every top golfer present, it would be natural to expect a leaderboard packed with familiar names.While this year’s U.S. Open does have a few of those golfers — Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka among them — at the top, no one was playing better entering Saturday than Gary Woodland, who held a two-stroke lead over the rest of the field at Pebble Beach. At this year’s Waste Management Open, a video of Woodland inviting Amy Bockerstette from Special Olympics Arizona to play the 16th hole went viral.Known as one of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour, Woodland averages 309.0 yards off the tee, good for 11th on the tour. He’s ranked 26th in the FedEx Cup standings and has three top-10 finishes this season. He has earned $3,108,907 in official winnings.
