More Money for Tourism Promotion?

Indonesia Among Nations in Region Spending Least on Tourism Promotion.

(3/1/2002) Members of Commission VI of Indonesia's national parliament have promised to fight for more promotional funds in 2003, following recent meetings with the Promotional Body for Culture and Tourism (BP Budpar).

Syamsul Maurif, a member of the Parliamentary Commission responsible for tourism oversight, said he would work to see more money dedicated to promotion, but insisted that the organization charged with promotion must strive to prevent the corruption of the funds by accounting completely for all expenditures.

Indonesia Spend Less

Indonesia currently allocates only US$ 3 million for tourism promotion, a paltry sum for attracting tourists to the country when compared to the US$ 200 million spent by Thailand, US$ 150 million by Malaysia and $60 million by Singapore.
