Philatelists Association of Indonesia along with the support of Federation of Internationale de Philatelie had organized the World Stamp Competition nicknamed “INDONESIA 2012” from 18 to 24 June 2012 at the Jakarta Convention Center, Jakarta.
The show theme “Bridging the World of Peace Through Stamp” is to inspire the effort of world societies in achieving the eternal peace all over the world. More and more we realize that stamp has changed its track from merely a mean of showing payment of mail delivery to valuable collectible items.

Earlier, Indonesia has successfully conducted philatelic exhibitions in Asia-Pacific three times, namely “Indopex ’93” in Surabaya (1993), “Jakarta ’95” in Jakarta (1995), and “Jakarta 2008” in Jakarta (2008).
