The products include handicrafts, tourism, culture, arts and culinary items unique to the province.
"Insya Allah (God willing) South Sulawesi will become the icon for Inacraft next year," ASEPHI Secretary General, Baby Jumawati, said.
The province was chosen as the icon of the event in 2021 based on the examinations of the local government's readiness to hold the event, Jumawati said.
Not only crafts, there will also be tourism, culture, art, and culinary products that would be displayed, as Inacraft is the biggest promotion event for all Southeast Asian countries.
"This is an opportunity for Eastern Indonesia, which has not been represented so far, because there are craft centers in Java, even though Sulawesi has potential. Many do not know that the fabric in Sulawesi is excellent, and there are a lot of motifs," Jumawati said.
Related to the plan of South Sulawesi becoming an icon of Inacraft 2021, Lies F Nurdin said the province had begun preparing to give the best in the upcoming Inacraft 2021.
"In 2020, we will take part in the Inacraft exhibition again, and in 2021 we are expected to become an icon for the Inacraft exhibition. So hopefully we will not disappoint South Sulawesi. The preparations must be executed well for 2021," she explained.
She expressed her great pleasure and happiness for South Sulawesi being appointed as the icon of Inacraft 2021 because Inacraft is a highly anticipated exhibition, exclusively for national craft exhibitions in Indonesia. (INE).
