SOMERSWORTH – Over the past weekend, Indonesian dignitaries, local Indonesian leaders, Somersworth city officials and the community gathered to celebrate the opening of the Little Indonesia Cultural Center in downtown Somersworth.

The partnership between the two nations isn't ending there, officials said Tuesday, stating a long-term partnership is envisioned with a commitment to seeing what is being called the world's first Little Indonesia district flourish.

The Somersworth and Dover mayors and an Indonesia deputy ambassador met Tuesday morning in City Council chambers to discuss the future plans involving the Tri-Cities and Indonesia.
