The 2019 reciprocal tour was conducted between the 21st January and 31st January 2020. The tour encompassed a number of industry locations key to the Indonesian Red Meat supply chain. 

These locations included Animal Market Ambar Ketawang Yogyakarta, Small Holder Farmer partnership with Widodo Makmur Feedlot, Gadjah Mada University, JJAA (CPC Feedlot) in Lampung, SUJ Cattle Under Palm Plantation, Indo Prima Beef Feedlot, Z Beef Abattoir, Wet Market Jakarta, Global Comply, Udayana University, Bali Breeding Centre, Bakso Restaurants and local dancing and musical performances.
The Alumni Function saw 180 NIAPP and Red Meat Partnership Alumni, industry representatives and representatives from the NT pastoral industry converge on Jakarta for the Annual Alumni Forum. 
The forum focused on the hot topic of “Environmental Impacts of Livestock” and what both Northern Australia & Indonesia are doing to ensure both a sustainable 
environment & cattle industry for the future.
The speaker line up included Dr Panjono from Gadjah Mada University, Pribadie Nugraha from Meat & Livestock Australia (Indonesia), Kieren McCosker NT Government Department of Primary Industries and Pebi Purwoseno from Directorate General Livestock and Animal Services Indonesia.
A massive thank you must go to Study NT and the Indonesia Australia Red Meat Partnership; without their support this event would not be possible.
A key component of NIAPP is the host station reciprocal tour. 
We believe this to be an important part of the program to increase industry understanding of the Indonesian Red Meat and cattle sector and assisting in meeting the objective of fostering, strengthening and deepening cross-industry relationships between the Australian and Indonesian beef cattle industry.
All participants expressed how the tour had increased their knowledge of the red meat supply chain, and the overall importance of Live Export Market to both Australia and Indonesia.
