Indonesia allocates Rp150 billion to promote tourism
December 11th, 2007

Denpasar, Bali (ANTARA News) - The government has allocated Rp150 billion for tourism promotion in 2008, compared to promotion funds in 2007 which stood at Rp100 billion.

“We proposed Rp200 billion for promotion funds for tourism, but probably we will get only Rp150 billion,” Tourism and Culture Minister Jero Watjik said here Monday on the sideline of a seminar on the impact of climate change on Indonesian tourism.

He said the amount of Indonesia`s tourism promotion funds was far below those of other countries such as Malaysia which provided some Rp800 bilion for the purpose.

But despite the relatively small amount of promotion funds, the ministry had set itself the target of attracting at least seven million foreign tourists a year.

Some strategies have been made involving private sector such as hotel operators, to improve promotion to potential markets.

Hotels and other tourism operators are expected to provide brochures, VCD and others to promote Indonesian tourism abroad, the minister said.

Foreign tourist visit in Indonesia as of October has reached four million, while the target during 2007 was set at six million.

Watjik expressed optimism that the target could be reached with conducive security situation in the country.

A Tale of Myopia from Bali
December 11th, 2007

Twelve thousand climate delegates descended on one of my favorite places in the world last week, the Indonesian island of Bali, a place that actually measures up to a good portion of its reputation as Paradise. In my opinion, anyway. Some of the delegates didn’t apparently see things that way, and grudgingly shed their business attire for batik shirts when they discovered their complaints about the lack of enough air conditioning in the pricey tourist and conference region known as Nusa Dua were not going to change the situation. How can anybody properly discuss climate change with sweat pouring down his back like the gushing moulins of Greenland’s melting ice?
