Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
Praise to God almighty. Directorate General for Postal and Informatics Operation, Ministry of Communication and Information Technology together with the Indonesian Philatelists Association and PT Pos Indonesia will once again hold an International Stamp Exhibition and Competition in 2017 which is called “Bandung 2017”.
Stamp and Philately are two side of the same coin. On one hand, the stamp has many functions such as a proof of letter delivery service, an educational tool, information dissemination and philatelic item. On the other hand philately is an activity utilizing stamp that drives philatelists creativity and ability through exhibition and competition nationally and internationally.
Stamp Exhibition is an important forum for stamp collectors from various countries to meet, display and compete their creativity of the stamp or postal items. In addition they can establish relationship through information and knowledge exchange among themselves.
Ministry of Communication and Information Technology will support any activities relating to the development of philately.
We hope “Bandung 2017” will provide some positive and significant benefits for the development of Indonesian society, especially in this city and its surrounding. We also hope this activities will be successful and smooth as well as fulfil visitors and collectors satisfaction from around the world.
