Q & A with Robin Bush

February 11, 2009

Award-winning journalist Christopher Taylor has been published in the Financial Times, Fortune, Money, GQ, Esquire, and more. His blog, Everything Indonesia, features a Q & A with The Asia Foundation’s Dr. Robin Bush. Says Taylor: “No offense to politicians, but when you need a real State of the Union, you don’t go to political hacks. You go to people like Robin Bush. As Indonesia’s country rep for the Asia Foundation, she’s steeped in local culture, with her heart and soul dedicated to making the country a better place.” The interview is the first installment of a two-part series highlighting Dr. Bush’s take on issues facing Indonesians such as development and politics. Dr. Bush shares her personal ties to Indonesia, Indonesia’s response to President Obama’s election win, and her thoughts on what every American should know about the world’s largest archipelagic state. Robin Bush is The Asia Foundation’s Country Representative in Indonesia where she manages an international and national staff of over 60 and a grants and technical assistance portfolio of over $50 million.
