A friendly bowling contest for the officials and representatives of the two nations will also be held.

Besides the games, the organising committee is arranging for the athletes to visit places of interest in the city.

Indonesia Day, a programme showcasing Indonesian films, culture, fashion and food, is being held simultaneously.

In a welcoming dinner last Saturday, Unimas deputy vice-chancellor Associate Professor Mohd Fadzil Abdul Rahman said: “The games are important to maintain a good relationship between the two countries and similar ones will be held between Malaysia and Thailand.”

“Even though every athlete aims to win, what’s more important is for them to take the opportunity to get to know one another ... likewise the officials and representatives.”

He added that the next games would be held in Semarang, central Jawa.

Sukmalindo ends tomorrow.
