We look forward to working with the Indonesia Tourism Board to bring more travellers to the country.”

According to a recent study, Indonesia is set to welcome over 900,000 tourists by the end of this quarter. The government is helping curb the spread of covid-19 spread by keeping the highest vaccination rates in Bali and maintaining the standards as per CHSE certifications.

Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia, said:“We’ve been synchronizing or aligning some of our future promotion plans since Bali is still the top of mindof tourists, with a new economic era through digital marketing, it is necessary to innovate in our patterns of promotion. There are several approaches to achievethe target of tourist number, namely by joint cooperation with our strategic partners in the market and organizing various international-class events in Indonesia. We agree with the approaches that become our programs such as sports tourism, MICE, and international events and tourism villages.”
