Message from the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia
Salam, I am pleased to announce that the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia will host the first ever Festival Indonesia in Seoul, at Cheonggye Plaza, from 20 to 22 September 2019.
This event is very timely as this year, we are commemorating the 35th anniversary between Seoul and
Jakarta as well as the 46th Bilateral Relation between Republic of Indonesia and Republic of Korea.
Festival Indonesia will showcase Indonesia’s progress as well as its diversity under three big themes:
Creative and Cultural Indonesia
SMEs product exhibition, cultural performances and workshops that will engage audience to have first-hand experience of Indonesia’s culture
business forum that will highlight Indonesia’s potentials as a promising investment destination especially in the area of infrastructure, halal industry, and digital economy.
cooking festival that will show talents and creativity of Indonesians living in Seoul in preparing Indonesia’s delicacies
I hope the Festival will bring more understanding about Indonesia and its culture and promote people – to people contact, especially between Indonesians and Koreans.
