MPI Wants 3 Month Review for New Tourism Minister

Tourism Leaders Insist on Dynamic Action From Government to Rebuild Industry.

(10/25/2004) Although underlining their respect for the decision of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to appoint Jero Wacik as the new Minister of Culture and Tourism, the Indonesian Tourism Think Tank (MPI) is calling for a review of the Minister's job performance after 3 months.

Quoted in the Indonesian-language Bisnis Indonesia, Ms. Herma Danuningrat, the Chairwoman of MPI Jakarta said "tourism is a dynamic sector (of the economy) and if we wait for one year to discover the new Minister's synergy is not operating well, tourism will fall further behind."

Together with other members of the tourism industry, Danuningrat welcomes the appointment of Minister Jero Wacik in President Yudhoyono's "United Indonesia Cabinet" and wishes to cooperate with him in developing national tourism. "In fact, MPI Jakarta extends the open hand of cooperating and will provide him (Minister Jero Wacik) with input in designing his program for the first 100 days in office," added Danunungrat.
