Getting Serious About Tourism

President Yudhoyono To Convene Ministerial Roundtable in Bali Dedicated Solely to Tourism Issues.

(12/13/2004) In long-overdue recognition of the potential major contribution that tourism can make to national development, President Susilo Bambang Yodhoyono has announced his intention to convene a special cabinet-level meeting focused solely on issues related to culture and tourism January 14-15, 2005, in Bali.

The meeting, involving members of the Cabinet whose departments' policies impact tourism, will be held at the historic Tampaksiring Presidential Retreat built in the hills of Central Bali by Indonesia's first president, Soekarno.

By calling together those charged with administrating tourism, immigration, transportation, and infrastructure policies the President is reportedly hoping to identify specific strategic steps to be taken help Indonesia double the size of total tourism revenues before the end of his current five-year term of office.
