Message of FIP President

It has been 5 years since the last FIP World Stamp Championship Exhibition was successfully held in Jakarta. I am very excited that once again, the Indonesia Philatelists Association, together with the support of Pos Indonesia as well as the Directorate of Posts and Information Technology, Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, shall be holding BANDUNG 2017, a FIP Specialised World Stamp Exhibition, in Bandung.
Being the capital of Indonesia’s West Java province, Bandung’s architecture and rich culture will form the perfect backdrop for this highly anticipated event by philatelists coming from all over the world.
The Federation Internationale De Philatelie (F.I.P) is very pleased to support and extend its Patronage to BANDUNG 2017. I am very confident that BANDUNG 2017 will be a very successful Exhibition, with close to 2,000 frames of exhibits. I would like to commend the Organising Committee of BANDUNG 2017 for all the hard work.
May I hereby wish all philatelists, budding collectors, visitors and dealers have a very fruitful experience at this Exhibition and I am looking forward to meeting everyone in Bandung.
