"The president will open the fair tomorrow morning," Tourism and Creative Industry Minister Mari Elka Pangestu said here on Sunday.

The minister said that the ASEAN Fair which was to be held for the first time carried the theme: "Hallo ASEAN?" which was a warm greeting of Indonesia to its ASEAN colleagues.

"As the ASEAN chair 2011, Indonesia initiated the ASEAN Fair as a forum for ASEAN members to jointly exhibit their culture and creative economic products," Mari said.

The minister said that culture was a means of unifying the nation and could unite countries so that through the universal language of culture Indonesia intended to provide distinguished respect to the ASEAN identity and solidarity bound for the ASEAN societies.
