"The event not only introduces Indonesias goods and services, but also features the countrys diversities of culture, history, and economic potential to the American people, particularly in the Midwest," the Head of ITPC in Chicago, Wijayanto, said in a press release received by ANTARA News here.
He is optimistic that the event, which is being held for the first time in Chicago, will give a significant push to the governments efforts in improving its national branding in the US.
Although it is the first, Wijayanto is determined to make this exhibition an annual event in Chicago.
Businesses and governments have been facilitated with exhibition booths. The products displayed at the fair all relate to Indonesia.
The Indonesian government has put up notices in some public places to promote the event.
"We are also heavily promoting it on the social media. If you want more information, go to Facebook and Instagram @remarkableindonesiafair or click www.remarkableindonesiafair.com," Wijayanto said.
Some 33 businesses and government agencies will participate in the fair.
