Dino Patti Djalal, the new Ambassador of Indonesia for the United States of America, delivered his speech during a welcome dinner organised by USINDO. In my opinion, this is one of the best speech delivered by an Indonesian about America. The speech is realistic and optimistic at the same time. It was delivered with elegant language, depicting respects of Indonesia to the United States, but at the same time also properly asking the US to show the same, not just to Indonesia but also the world. Dino is a young, dynamic and nationalist Indonesian, yet an open-minded and internationally-knowledgeable leader. Here is his speech.
