One of the functions of the Press and Cultural Section of the Indonesian Embassy in Vienna is to familiarize Austria and Slovenia and its citizens with the richness of Indonesian culture. The relations between both Austria and Slovenia and Indonesia are reinforced through cooperative cultural exchange projects. Numerous performances and cultural presentations in cooperation with Austrian schools, universities, economic chambers and other organizations including clubs and travel agencies raise both the interests in and the understanding for Indonesian culture and the people of Indonesia.
The Press and Cultural Section also monitors Austrian and Slovenian media reports that are relevant to Indonesia to be communicated to the capital. It also makes an effort to deepen relations with Austrian media and achieve a good level of cooperation in order to ensure that the media obtains an accurate information of the country. The Section is also the contact point for tourists, travel agencies and other individuals and companies in need of specific information about the country, its regulations and the situation there.
Other tasks of the Section include the documentation of performances, ceremonies, receptions and other events in the form of photographs and videos, as well as processing, presenting and archiving this documentation.
