A heartfelt welcome to the new Consul General of the Republic of Indonesia in San Francisco, Prasetyo Hadi, and his wife, Sekti Kirana Jati.
We are touched and honored by their visit to Lian’s residence so soon after their arrival in San Francisco and thank Ibu Riena Dwi Astuty, Consul of Information and Social Cultural Affairs, for thoughtfully arranging this introduction. We also thank Ibu Riena Sarojo, secretary to the Consul General for escorting the honored guests to the meeting.
The pleasant afternoon was filled with insightful conversation and building a solid foundation for close collaboration between the KJRI SF (Konsulat Jenderal Republik Indonesia San Francisco) and Dalang Publishing. We look forward to working together in bringing English language translations of Indonesian literary works ⸺ works that introduce our history, culture, and social concerns — to the United States and the world beyond.
