Message of FIP Consultant
It is a great honour for me to have been appointed as the Consultant to World Stamp Exhibition Bandung 2017 by the Federation Internationale de Philatelie (FIP).
The Indonesian Philatelists Association had successfully held the World Stamp Championship - INDONESIA 2012 in Jakarta and this has inspired them to organise once again after a lapse of 5 years in Bandung.
Bandung is Indonesia’s third-largest city but lies close enough to Jakarta and offers cooler weather. It is the capital of Indonesia’s West Java province and is a large city set amid volcanoes and tea plantations.
World Stamp Exhibition Bandung 2017 is fully supported by The Indonesian Philatelists Association, Pos Indonesia and Ministry of Communications and Informatics. It is under the patronage of Federation Internationale de Philatelie (FIP) and auspices of Federation of Inter-Asian Philately (FIAP). The exhibition will open its door to all stamp lovers all over the world from August 3 to 7, 2017.
Holding friendship and peace through stamp is the theme for Bandung 2017 World Stamp Exhibition and I certainly look forward to meet all friends in Bandung.
