Today, I am deeply pleased to be able to attend
this exceptional event and to present the rewards to the one and only lucky
person, who is selected as the 1-millionth visitor of Indonesian Pavilion at
the World Expo 2010.
Allow me, on behalf of the Government of Indonesia
and all the organizers of Indonesian Pavilion, to extend my warmest
congratulations to the winner.
This event is one of the activities organized at
Indonesian Pavilion in the attempt of fostering the awareness and understanding
of the public of China and of the international community by and large about
Shanghai World Expo 2010 is auspiciously held in
tandem with the 60th anniversary of the establishment of
Indonesia-China diplomatic relations as well as the year of friendship between
our two nations. Three great events that definitely are worth celebration.
Therefore I commend that it is an impeccable moment to further closer
cooperation and promote understanding between people and civilization.
Shanghai World Expo has given the avenue for
Indonesia to introduce itself as a significant part of the world, a partner in
development, friends of the people of China and of the wide world community,
who share the view of togetherness in realizing ‘Better City, Better Life’.
Through the concept of BIO-DIVERSE-CITY, Indonesia Pavilion presents the image
of the ultimate upshots of the country’s green sustainable development, the
people’s life, and the vast varieties of its culture.
The event here today is our celebration to welcome
the multitude numbers of visitor coming to our pavilion; and we would like to
share the celebration with you. The one-millionth visit we witnessed today is
an evidence that people from China and from all over the world put great
interest and maybe also have certain curiosity to know more, and to learn more
Let me once again congratulate the lucky number
1-millionth visitor while welcoming you all to visit our Indonesian Pavilion
and become the Friends of Indonesia.
Thank you. Xie xie.
