Long-time Bali residents and members of the island's diplomatic corps joined the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in Indonesia, Norbert Baas, in paying homage the retiring Honorary Consul for Germany Bali at a dinner and cocktail reception held at Laguna – the Luxury Collection on Friday, December 9, 2011.

The retiring Honorary Consul for Germany, Reinhold Jantzen, has served in that capacity since April 1986. In more than 25 years as “Berlin’s Man” in Bali," Jantzen was twice bestowed with high honors by his government for meritorious service; welcomed German heads of state on official visits to Bali; and served as the point man for German nationals in need of assistance while living or visiting Bali.

His tasks routinely included helping travelers who lost their passports; visiting Germans incarcerated in jail or hospitalized in Bali; and helping people process the documentation of marriage, births and deaths involving a German national. In his darkest days as Consul, Jantzen was also compelled to deal with tragedy and death on a massive scale in the aftermath of the Bali bombings of 2002 and 2005.

Reinhold Jantzen first came to Bali 35 years ago, originally working in German development projects. Starting his own food service business in 1986, he now supplies quality processed meat products to the islands hotels and supermarkets. Married to Endang Suciati, Jantzen is the proud father of two sons and a daughter.

Ambassador Baas spoke at the evening’s gathering, saluting the long and valuable service provided by Reinhold Jantzen to the Republics of Germany and Indonesia. Now 72 years of age, Baas explained how German regulations require the retirement of the honorary consul in Bali, despite Reinhold’s demonstrable reserves of energy and expertise.

The evening was also used to appoint and take the oath of office for Germany’s new Honorary Consul in Bali. That role is now filled by Robert Jantzen, the eldest son of the retiring honorary consul and a partner in Mama’ Delicatessen. Reinhold Jantzen, who held the informal title of “Dean” as Bali’s longest-serving consular officer, has now turned over his role to his Son who becomes the island’s youngest diplomatic consul.

Shown on are (left to right), Reinhold Jantzen, retiring Honorary Consul for German in Bali; Robert Jantzen, Honorary Consul for Germany in Bali; and H.E. Mr. Norbert Baas, Ambassador for the Federal Republic of Germany in Indonesia.
