MIRI: The ‘Taste of Indonesia’ fair is introducing wide range of food products from the country.

Apart from showcasing variety of food products from the country, it is hoped to promote closer rapport between the Borneo region (Indonesia, Sarawak and Brunei Darussalam), disclosed Miri Mayor Adam Yii Siew Sang yesterday during the official opening of the fair held in Bintang Megamall Miri.

The two-day event which started from Dec 2 is being held at Everrise Supermarket in Bintang Megamall Miri, showcasing variety of food products from Indonesia.

It is one of efforts made by the Miri City Council (MCC) to promote closer rapport, by getting to know each other well and inter-visits among the people in both countries for mutual interests and benefits,” said Yii.

His text of speech was read out by his deputy Julaihi Muhammad.

“We have quite a similar food culture with the Indonesians since we have Indonesians who have been working in Miri for a long time, including in various industries including quite a number of them who are now working in the food shops and restaurants. Perhaps in the future we will develop some food favourites which are unique and different from other major towns in terms of taste and flavour,” Yii said.

He expressed hopes that this fair would be the beginning of a series of activities of interaction between the two countries.

” And for this matter, may be the major commercial houses can also promote our local food produces like our bubuk, belacan , cincaluk, beras Bario, kueh lapis and so forth,” Yii pointed out.

The fair gathers various products from traders in the North Kalimantan, West Kalimantan and Tarakan island of Indonesia.

Also present were Consul-General of the Republic of Indonesia in Kuching, Raden Sigit Witjaksono (4th from left), the Indonesian Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam , Dr Sujatmiko M.A and Mayor of La Trinidad Municipality Romeo Kimo Salda.
