This is extremely disappointing to me. 1 am deeply disappointed that your visit to New South Wales was cut short in this manner. The sister state relationship between Jakarta and New South Wales is important to my government and is a demonstration of the commitment by our respective administrations to continued growth in the LEVEL 39, GOVERNOR MACQUARIE TOWER, 1 FARRER PLACE, SYDNEY 2000, AUSTRALIA, TEL: 92285: (GPO.
