New Taipei holds Indonesian cultural festival

Taipei, Sept. 20 (CNA) An Indonesian cultural festival was held in New Taipei on Sunday, with New Taipei Mayor Eric Chu (???) saying that he hopes the event will help more Taiwanese understand the Indonesian culture. Jointly organized by the New Taipei city government and the Indonesian Economic and Trade Office in Taipei, the festival featured dance and music performances and offered health check-ups and massages. The festival, which took place at the New Taipei city government civic square, attracted many Indonesian workers, new immigrants and Taiwanese nationals. Chu, who attended the festival, said Taiwan and Indonesia are important trade partners and he hopes the annual festival will help Taiwanese citizens gain a better understanding of the Indonesian culture. There are currently more than 36,000 Indonesian workers and close to 4,000 immigrants from Indonesia in New Taipei, Chu said, adding that these people have made the culture in his city richer and more diverse.
