It was a great honor to represent Israel at the World Stamp Exhibition held at the Trans Studio Convention Center in Bandung, Indonesia, in August, under the patronage of the Federation International de Philatelie (FIP) and under the auspices of the Federation of Inter Asian Philately, with the support of Pos Indonesia and the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology.

The primary aim of the World Stamp Exhibition is to promote friendly relations and maintain close cooperation among philatelists and stamp collectors around the world. An official invitation to Israel was extended to the Israeli Philatelic Federation, even though Indonesia – the world’s most populous Muslim country with over 260 million people – does not have diplomatic relations with Israel.
