Visit Indonesia We're Counting on You!

With Only 3.36 million Visitors Nation-Wide through the End of September, Indonesia Will Fall Short of Projected 6 Million Visitors for 2007.

(11/3/2007) The Indonesian Central Bureau of Statistics reports that 3.36 million foreign tourists visited the Country through the end of September 2007, a +13.5% improvement over the same period in 2006.

Playing a major role in the improving fortunes of nation-wide tourist arrivals was Bali which logged 1,229,779 foreign arrivals during the first three quarters of the year, an increase of +34.98%%. [See: Bali's 2007 Q3 Arrivals Up +34.98% over 2006]

4.87 million foreign tourists visited Indonesia in 2006. If the current growth trend continues, Indonesia will close the year with some 5.5 million tourist, a number far short of the targeted 6 million visitors set by Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik.

A shortfall of a half-million tourists translates into lost foreign exchange earning worth US$465.5 million.
