Upping the Tourism Ante

Buoyed by Strong Arrival Figures Tourism Officials Increase Arrival Targets for 2005.

(12/7/2004) Greatly encouraged by Indonesia's strong recovery in direct tourist arrivals, the Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik, has revised the targeted 5.3 million visitors predicted for 2005 to an ambitious 6 million.

In increasing the targeted visitors for next year the Minister has also increased the anticipated foreign exchange to be earned by the national tourism sector to US$ 6 billion.

Admitting that al all-out effort will be required to meet the revised tourism goals, the Minister has adopted a dynamic inter-departmental approach to overcoming any obstacles to tourism development involving his counterparts from the Department of Communications, Department of Public Works, Department of Justice and Human Rights (including immigration), Department of Finance, the Ministry for State-Owned Enterprises, the Department of Foreign Affairs, and the Department of Industry.

By involving all the diverse departments of the Government involved in tourism Minister Wacik hopes to intensify the current momentum to hasten growth in the Nation's tourism industry.
