Indonesia's Minister for Culture and Tourism, Mr. I Gde Ardika, has announced a new initiative that will enlarge the role of Indonesia's overseas diplomats in promoting national tourism.
Responding to complaints from the nation's diplomats that tourism promotion material in their possession was either non-existent or badly out-of-date, Minister Ardika promised that promotional material is in the process of being updated and would soon be available for distribution in all overseas missions of the Republic.
With the closure of most of the Countries overseas tourism promotion offices since the onset of the political and economic crisis that began in 1998, Indonesia has been at a distinct disadvantage in efforts to portray a positive national image abroad. (Bisnis Indonesia)
