As reported on balidiscovery.com, [MICE Director Promised Before End of Year], Indonesia is taking belated steps to increase its share of the meetings, incentive, conference and exhibition market (MICE).
To that end, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism recently appointed Suryadharma as the Head of its newly established Directorate of Convention, Incentive and Exhibition.
A veteran of national tourism circles with more than 20 years in tourism postings, Suryadharma's most recent portfolio gave him responsibility for tourism business development. In the 1990s he worked for 5 years at the now defunct Indonesian Tourism Promotion Office in Los Angeles, California..
In comments to Trvel Trade Gazette Suryadharma said: : "My major focus will be to foster the professional development of Indonesian PCOs (professional conference organizers) and to work together with the private sector to bring more events to Indonesia."
Adding: "One of the goals of this directorate is to help generate quality tourist arrivals to the country. The directorate will also facilitate the industry in bidding for events."
