Singapore opens consulate in Batam

SINGAPORE: Singapore's Minister for Foreign Affairs George Yeo visited Batam on Friday for the official opening of the Singapore Consulate in Batam.

The consulate in Batam is Singapore's third representation in Indonesia.

Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said the establishment underscores Singapore's strong ties with Indonesia, and in particular, the Riau Islands Province (KEPRI).

Besides providing consular services to Singaporeans in KEPRI, the Consulate will also help to promote and enhance exchanges between Singapore and KEPRI.

Mr Yeo also attended the Singapore National Day reception as Guest-of-Honour.

He met KEPRI Acting Governor Muhammad Sani, Vice-Governor-elect Soerya Respationo and guests at the National Day reception and discussed how Singapore and KEPRI could continue to strengthen their existing cooperation. - CNA/vm

It would be nice if the US Consulate would do something klike this. Even if it is just a small support office with minimal staffof 2 people it would be better than having to go to Singapore or Jakarta to visit the US Consulate.

i doubt that is going to happen any time soon. there just aren't enough US citizens or US interests in Batam. unlike singapore, that has both many citizens and lots of investment here.
