Antara News Agency reports that Bali tourism officials are targeting foreign tourist arrivals to Bali in 2007 to hit 1.6 million an ambitious 27% increase over the numbers achieved in 2006 (1,260,317).

Antara quoted Wayan Subagiarta of the Bali Government as saying, "We have made various efforts and breakthroughs to improve the tourism industry in Bali. We hope that Bali could become a safe and convenient resort island."

The local government is also projecting some 2.8 million domestic visitors to the island for 2007.

7 Million Foreign Visitors to Indonesia in 2007?

Bisnis Indonesia reports that Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla has called on the Culture & Tourism Department to revise upward their current target of 5.5 million foreign visitors in 2007 to 7 million.

The Vice President reportedly made his request in a meeting with the Minister of Culture and Tourism, complaining that the current target of 5.5 million demonstrates little progress from the 2005 performance when just under 5 million foreign tourists were counted.

Quoted by Bisnis Indonesia, the Vice President said: "Indonesia must be able to capture higher tourist numbers, as does Singapore and Malaysia who are achieving totals in excess of 10 million. Don't tell me that Indonesia can't do better than 5.5 million foreign visitors! In fact, we (Indonesia) are rich in unique objects."

Indonesian Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik, confirmed that the Vice President had called for revised arrival figures, but refused to comment further until his staff had reviewed their current forecasts. The Tourism Minister said revisions to the tourism targets, if any, will be announced in late February.
