Message Of Minister Of Communication and Information Technology
2017 is a great year for Indonesia as we honoured to be the host of World Stamp Exhibtion, an International event under the patronage of the Federation Internationale de Philatelie (FIP) and the Federation of Inter-Asian Philately (FIAP). This year, the World Stamp Exhibition take place in Bandung, the capital city of West Java.
Bandung is well-known fot its beauty, rich culture and friendly people. In this city, you can enjoy a wide variety of traditional cuisines or even spend some time to enjoy its beauty sceneries. Theres is a traditional saying that describes the beauty of West Java. : “West Java (Bumi Pasundan) was created when God was smilling”. The uniqe charm of Bandung makes it nickname “Paris Van Java” seems to be appropriate compliment.
The World Stamp Exhibition is held every year to promote philately and its positive values such as persistency, honestly and parience to the young generation around the world.
Departing from the objective, i hope that this event can become a melting pot where delegates, participants, collectors and philatelic enthusiast share and learn from each other as we build a strong realtion and cooperation for preseverving noble value of philately.
Finally, I would like to invite you to surround ourselves with the spirit of friendship and peace as we celebrate this spceial event.
