EWC Mourns Loss of Hadi Soesastro, International Advisory Board Member

Dr. Hadi Soesastro

HONOLULU (May 3) - The East-West Center expresses its deep sympathy to the family of Dr. Hadi Soesastro as we mourn his passing. Dr. Hadi served as a member of the Center’s International Advisory Board and has participated in several EWC activities over the years.  He also served as the executive director of the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Jakarta, Indonesia. As one of the most prominent and respected Southeast Asian intellectuals promoting regional economic cooperation and freer trade, he was a mentor and adviser to many younger Southeast Asian scholars and government officials.   


“We will deeply miss Hadi for his brilliant mind, his warm and unassuming character, and his profound commitment to our Asia Pacific community-building mission,” stated EWC President Charles E. Morrison.
