“Indonesia is known for its unrivalled sheer tropical beauty, the abundance of its seas, soils and natural resources, the uniqueness of its culture and the sincere hospitality of its people, Indonesia is a world of its own,” said H.E. Indonesian Ambassador KCVO, Mr. Teuku Mohammad Hamzah Thayeb. He added, “Therefore, to reflect the beauty of Indonesia, I suggest the following theme for the Indonesia Pavilion: Indonesia, “Emerald of the Equator.”

The Indonesia Pavilion theme, “Emerald of the Equator” in this Festival Asia debut in May will incorporate the richness of cultural biodiversity, featuring food, fashion, spirituality, arts, dance and music performances, artifacts, health and spas stalls, clothes, spices and much more, including children’s entertainment.
