[Sundaytimes=Chris Lee reporter]Indonesian Embassy is the only Embassy located in Yeouido and only 5 minutes away from National Assembly, or just across KBS Annex. Being located in center of Seoul, it makes our Embassy easy to reach.
As of September 2018, there are 38.509 Indonesians staying in South Korea, 89.1 % of them are migrant workers, 4,3 % of them are students and 6.4% are others including mix married and Indonesian Expatriates. Indonesians are also naturally born artists. They love and uphold their culture wherever they go. They occasionally gather among themselves and create some arts and cultural communities. They form cultural activates to connect them to their root. Few to mention are Reog (Dance from East Java demonstrating physical strength and extravagant lion-peafowl mask), Kuda Lumping (dance from central and west Java depicting a group of horsemen), Silat (traditional Martial Art), Campur Sari (crossover of several contemporary Indonesian music genres) etc. Some cultural groups have participated in events held by the Embassy or even get invited to perform in some multicultural events held by Korean Government or institutions such as Hi! Seoul, Guro Festival, Itaewon Global Village, Migrants Arirang Multicultural Festival and many more.
Indonesian Embassy also facilitates and offers anybody who are interested to learn Indonesian arts and culture. Gamelan Class (traditional ensemble music from Java and Bali) and Indonesian Traditional dance class are open for free every Saturday.
Other than a rich culture country, Indonesia is well known for its beauty of the nature. For promoting, those beautiful places, Indonesian Embassy cooperates with Visit Indonesia Tourism Office (VITO) in arranging various sales mission and familiarization trip and some other promotional events for Korean citizens, including media, vloggers, bloggers and other counterparts in tourism industry.
Besides that, Indonesian Embassy also actively promotes Indonesian Trade and Investment potential. Through a synergy with Indonesian Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) Busan and Indonesian Investment Promotion Center (IIPC) in Seoul, Indonesian Embassy is working hard to increase trade value with South Korea up to 30 Billion USD on 2022 by participating in various exhibition in South Korea (Halal Trade Expo, Coffee Expo, Handmade Fair, Food Fair and else), and holding various business forum.
Above all of that, Indonesian Embassy believes that one of the key factor to tighten Indonesia – South Korea relationship is people to people exchange, especially the young generations of both countries. Therefore, Indonesian Embassy forms Korea-Indonesia Sahabat Sejati (KISS) (Korean – Indonesian True Friends) as a platform for millennial Koreans and Indonesians in Korea to take part in promoting relationship of the two countries. Members of KISS were especially invited to have a morning walk and chit chat with Indonesian President H.E. Mr. Joko Widodo in his State Visit to Korea last September.
In promoting Indonesia in South Korea and putting Indonesia in the heart of Korean people, Indonesian Embassy also has cooperation with various partners such as ASEAN-Korea Center, ASEAN Culture House, Korea Foundation and else. We also often receive invitation from schools or museums to give special lectures or short presentations about Indonesia. By doing so, we hope to reach more Korean to have better understanding about Indonesia. In line with this purpose, on January 24, 2019, in cooperation with National Museum of Korean Contemporary History, Indonesian Ambassador will give special lecture followed by movie screening. We hope you can participate on the aforementioned event.
