Overview

In 2006, Indonesia hosted the first ‘Trail of Civilization’, a symposium aimed to foster co-operation and the preservation of cultural heritage between Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. These countries declared that their common heritage would be an important vehicle for further preserving and promoting their culture through cultural tourism.

This meeting resulted in the Borobudur declaration, a commitment by these nations to work together in preserving cultural heritage. By working in co-operation, it is envisaged that together, each country will be able to improve their ability to preserve and promote their related cultural heritage.

The highlight of the 2006 symposium was a special performance of the Mahakarya ballet featuring traditional Javanese dancing, music and costumes. In this special performance, dancers depicted the history of the construction of Borobudur temple.

Meetings between tourism Ministers from the Trail of Civilization countries took place again in 2008 and 2010.
