Indonesian tourism arrivals nation-wide for the first nine months of 2013 are bolstering optimism that a target of 8.6 million foreign visitors for the entire year will be met.

Indonesian foreign tourist arrivals in September totaled 770,878 - pushing arrivals past the 6 million mark on a cumulative basis for January-September 2013. quotes the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy on Saturday, November 2, 2013, as saying that September arrivals of 770,878 were 12.8% higher than the 683,584 foreign visitors who came to Indonesia in September 2012.

Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism and the Creative Economy, Mari Elka Pangestu, said: “Looking at the trend of foreign visitors over the past few months, I am optimistic that we will meet our moderate target of tourist arrivals for the entire year of 8.6 million.”

Total foreign visitors to Indonesia for the period January-September 2013 totaled 6.414,149 tourists.

Pangestu credited the meeting, incentive, conference and exhibition (MICE) sector for supporting the increase in tourist arrivals to Indonesia, citing the APEC 2013 conference and related meetings in Bali as making a major contributions to the strong performance in arrivals.

“The peak holiday season at the end of the year will also boost arrivals. For the coming three month we will focus on increasing promotions in a number of countries, and participate in the World Travel Mart in London and road shows in China to maintain the momentum of tourism growth through next year,” explained Pangestu.

Nationwide the countries showing the largest rate of month-on-month growth in September were Mainland China (+45,56%), Taiwan (+40%) and Hong Kong (+31.56%).
