The First 100 Days of Minister Wacik's New Term.

Minister of Culture and Tourism Pledges to Reduce Long Lines at Visa Counters and Brings More Direct Flights to Indonesia.

(10/26/2009) Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has asked each of the ministers seated in his newly appointed cabinet to assist him in his second term as the Country's Chief Executive by setting pronounced goals for their first 100 days in office.

Jero Wacik, the man reappointed to head the Culture and Tourism Ministry, recently outlined what he plans to achieve in his first 100 days.

Shorter Visa Lines

Wacik has pledged to shorten the lines for tourists purchasing the visa-on-arrival at the Nation's airports. Wacik told the press: "Our visa service takes too long and the lines are too long. The process has to be simplified." To achieve this, he has promised to meet urgently with the Justice and Human Rights Ministry (Depkum HAM) to discuss ways to keep his promise of a simpler, faster visa handling process.

More Flights to Indonesia

Wacik also declared as one of the goals for his first 100 day in the new administration to increase the number of direct flights to Indonesia from Australian, China, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, the Middle East and Europe.
