About Mr Richard Mathews
In March 2016, Australia’s new Consulate in Makassar was opened, with coverage of 11 provinces in Eastern Indonesia (the six provinces of Sulawesi, Maluku, North Maluku, NTT, West Papua and Papua). Mr Richard Mathews is the first Consul-General, having previously served as Australia’s Deputy Head of Mission in Taipei in 2009-12, and with previous postings in Athens (2002-2004) and Brunei Darussalam. He taught foreign, defence and strategic policy at the Australian Defence Force senior staff college, the Centre for Defence and Strategic Studies in Canberra, in 2013. Mr Mathews is fluent in Indonesian and has written a book on the economies of the eastern provinces of Indonesia, published by the ANU Press. In his early career he was also a teacher of Bahasa Indonesia at high schools in Australia.
