The juries, led by Havard Hauglin from Norges Varamesse were stakeholders including tourism writers and various tourism business and industries. Havard pointed out that the Indonesia pavilion with its Javanese decor dominated by batik patterns has a unique and authentic distinction. The Indonesian Pavilion has attracted many visitors’ attention with its signature Javanese gamelan instruments and a batik process demonstration.

Havard also stated that the Indonesian Pavilion was a very beautiful pavilion that came with a very personal touch. The tourism products presented here are unlike anything that one would find in the Internet.

Wening Esthyprobo, who is also the Economic Attaché and the Consular Head of the Indonesian Embassy in Oslo said” I am deeply moved”. She added that the 13m x 13m Indonesia’s pavilion is considered simpler compared to other booths and pavilions built by contractors and supported by plenty of brochures.

The Indonesian Pavilion in all its simplicity highlighted Batik as a national heritage that is recognized by UNESCO. The Indonesian Ambassador for Norway, Esti Andayani stated that the Indonesian Embassy in Oslo is currently conducting every effort to attract more and more Norwegians to visit Indonesia.
