like to say just a few words in welcoming you
here
today.Indonesia has a
great
story
to
cell
tothe
world -areally very gre-at story. It's a dynamic nation, a determinednation, a forceful nation
with
youthful vitality.
By
comparison
to
some
other
countries
of
the
world, Indonesia
is
a young country It's a young republic,
and
it's
on
its way
to
greatness. I have a very close affinity roIndonesia because I have lived there,
and the
first fairchat I worked
on
outside
of
the United
States was inIndonesia.
This
was the Pekan-Raya Imernarional in 1955,
ar
Djakarta, a wonderful year
to
be in Indonesia, becausethis was
the
lOth year
of
lndones1a's independence.
The
word Merdeka -chis
is
the word
for independence and
freedom-
was on everyone's lips as August 17th approached, the day
of
Indonesia's independence.
A
tremendous ceremony was
under
way for weeks. It wasindeed a thrilling
nme
robe
in
Djakarta
and in Indonesia.I recall how I was caught
up with the
spirit
of
the
ceremonies and rhe celebrations char
were going
on.
and
many times I
thought
that this was probably
the
feelingthat my forefathers had many years ago in
the United
States, when this country was a youthful country. SriSultan
Hamengku
Buwono
is
very representative
of
thisforceful leadership in Indonesia.
He
is
here
roday as anemissary
of
President Sukarno, and
he
-
among
his many
duties-
acquires a new duty
which
is
chairman
of
the
Indonesian Commirree for
panicipation
in
the New YorkWorld's
Fair.
He's
a
four
star general.
He
heads
up
all
the
tourist organizations
of
Indonesia,
as
well as his dutiesas a Sultan
of
Djokjakarta. I
think
this is very representa·rive
of
Indonesia's leadership.
He
was very
instrumenul
in
the
movement
to
bring
independence
to
Indonesia,
and
was also instrumental innegotiations
that brought West
Irian into
the
republic
of
Indonesia. Indonesia is
one
of
the
first countries
to
break
ground, working with
their architects -AbelSorenson
and Max
0.
Urbahn and their construaion
company. President Sukarno
is
an engineer
and
has taken apersonal interest in
the
design and plan
of
the
pavilion.I
spent
many
wonderful
months in Indonesia. I visitedmany
of
your cities: enjoyed
the
friendship
of
your peo
ple;
enjoyed your
culture; appreoared
your art and music.and now
10
1964 and 1965,
the
many millions
of
people
who weren't
as fortunate
as
I
to
travel
to
Indonesia will
be
able,
through
your pavilion,
to
enjoy, appreciate andlearn more about your fine country.
RICHARD
C.
PATTERSON,
