   Regarding the 11th East Asia Local and Regional Government Congress, it was decided that West Java Province, Republic of Indonesia will host it from November 4th to 6th, 2020 at Bandung City.

(West Java Province’s comment.)
  As a global issue, the Covid-19 global pandemic has affected many aspects, in particular, regarding international travel regulation, in which the majority of affected countries tend to curb international travel permits.

  Amid the uncertainty prediction of when the post-pandemic would begin, it is hard for us to recommend the congress to be postponed by next year finally. We have endeavored systematic attempts to prepare this congress possible to held this year so far, nevertheless, through careful considerations, it seems to be better momentum for us to meet up face to face for strengthening our partnership after the pandemic.
