Dear Colleagues and friends

We are pleased to welcome you to the tropical paradise island of Bali, Indonesia, a country of smiling people, full of hospitality, liveliness and a cultural heritage spanning of thousand years.

This year we have the honor to invite you to participate in the 53rd General Assembly and Associated Meetings of the Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU), which will be held from 18th to 25th October 2016 and continued by World Broadcasting Union (WBU) (Conference) by the kind invitation of Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI).

Continually, ABU plays a significant role in promoting cooperation, exchanges and development of radio and television in Asia pacific region. On the other hand, RRI also has been developing rapidly in many fields including expanding its stations the number of which now reaches more than 80 stations across various provinces in our country. Our strength, based on science and technology enables us not only covering close distance of our provinces, but also to reach far distance to geographical regions such as Middle East and Europe.

Being part of full member of Asia-pacific Broadcasting Union, Radio Republik Indonesia aspires to increase cooperation with other members of the Union in order to exchange valuable mutual experiences. Confidently, this 53rd ABU General Assembly will be an excellent forum for broadcasters in the Asia-Pacific to discuss strategies, improve and promote the services as well as an opportunity for further cooperation and enhance interactions among the members.

In addition, with our one day excursion, delegates may enjoy various cultural and recreational programmes we arrange. I do hope that you will take this opportunity to explore the beautiful paradise island of Bali, Indonesia, a country of smiling people.

We look forward to meeting you in Bali Indonesia and wishing a great success for the 53rd ABU General Assembly 2016.
