Work of Art of Badung Regency Presented in Washington

Work of Art of Badung Regency Presented in WashingtonAs an international tourist destination in Bali, Badung Regency is expected to play a role in strengthening the friendly relations between Indonesia and the United States. The wealth of the art and culture will play an important role in the efforts to strengthen such relationship. One of the supports can be done by donating a sculpture to represent the culture of Indonesia.

It was revealed in a special conversation between the Indonesian Ambassador to the United States Dr. Dino Patti Djalal and the Badung Regent Anak Agung Gde Agung amidst the open house held between the Ambassador and 19 regents and mayors throughout Indonesia attending the Executive Education Training Program at the Harvard Kennedy School in the Indonesian Embassy in Washington DC, United States, Friday (Oct 11). Ambassador Dino Patti Djalal said the support of local governments in international relations was very important at this time, including through cultural diplomacy.

“Presence of the sculpture art of Badung Regency in Washington DC can be a representation of cultural diplomacy, adopting the grand theme East meets West,” he said.

Currently, he explained, the government, business sector, and society of the United States were paying a great attention to Indonesia, considering the development of democracy, economy and social progress running quite rapidly. According to him, Indonesia was enjoying a strategic momentum privilege so that it was used further to strengthen the free and active foreign policy of Indonesia.

The Regent Gde Agung felt to be honored and welcomed the idea. In principle, the Badung Government was ready to provide support as having been done before, namely in the implementation of international events in Badung. According to him, it was a very brilliant idea since Washington was the capital of the United States being rich in historical and cultural objects.

“Existence of the Indonesian work of art in the middle of the Washington city will definitely increase the public interest of the United States to know further about Indonesia,” he said.

By all means, said Regent Gde Agung, the theme and form of the sculpture should be studied in depth in terms of its historical, philosophical and sociological aspect so that it could meet the objectives of cultural diplomacy. (BTN/015)
