Heinz Arndt was Professor of Economics at the ANU for 30 years and Emeritus Professor for 20 years from 1981. He founded the Indonesia Project in 1965 and was the head of the project until 1982. He was also the founding editor of the Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies and later editor of Asian-Pacific Economic Literature. The lecture series honours Professor Heinz Arndt’s long and distinguished career in development economics and Australia-Indonesia relations, as well as his contributions to the University. For many years, the late Professor Arndt was one of the most influential economists in Australia, and was one of the first to recognise the importance of the Asia-Pacific region to Australia.
This lecture series is organised by the Arndt-Corden Department of Economics.
