On 7 October 2020, the new Consul General of the Republic of Indonesia in Hamburg, Mr. Ardian Wicaksono, made his inaugural visit to Lord Mayor Markurth.
Topics of the meeting were activities for the anniversary year with Bandung, planning of the anniversary celebration in 2021 as well as new possibilities of cooperation.
60th anniversary of the twinning partnership Bandung – Braunschweig
24 May 2020 was the 60th anniversary of the twinning between Braunschweig and Bandung. The city of Braunschweig had planned a big celebration ceremony and an official delegation from Bandung headed by Mayor Danial should participate.
Apart from the official ceremony on 26th June 2020, it was planned to name a bridge in the Bürgerpark after Bandung. A party for the citizens and the visitors of the park was supposed to accompany this event. Furthermore, additional events such as exhibitions, an Indonesian market, a cooking class and more were also scheduled for this jubilee.
However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the festivities had to be postponed. We hope that they can take place around 18 June 2021.

On the occasion of the 210th anniversary of Bandung’s foundation, Lord Mayor Markurth sent a video message congratulating the city of Bandung. The video message was published on Bandung’s webpages.
