Annual Festival Indonesia to be Held in Russia for its 3rd Year

TEMPO.CO, Moscow - Indonesia’s Ambassador to Russia Mohamad Wahid Supriyadi said that the Indonesian Embassy is set to once again hold the third ‘Festival Indonesia’ on August 3-August 5 in the country’s capital of Moscow.

The annual event will be held at the 16.5 hectare Krasnaya Presnya Park in Russia and is hoped to attract roughly around 120,000 visitors.

“Festival Indonesia is an integrated event saturated with trades, tourism, and investments. There will be cultural performances, culinary, fashion, batik workshops, wayang and many more,” said Wahid in Moscow on Sunday, June 17.

The first Festival Indonesia was held back in August of 2016 and was able to attract 68,000 visitors. Meanwhile, the second event on August of 2017 attracted roughly over 91,000 visitors throughout its three-day event.

The Ambassador claims that the event helped improve the number of Russian tourists visiting Indonesia, considering that there were around 80,000 Russian tourists that visited Indonesia following the first two events, or a 22.5 percent increase.

Ambassador Wahid said that he is yet provided with valid data on the number of Indonesians visiting Russia, however, he is certain that Indonesians have chosen Russia as a popular destination to visit.
