Beritadewata.com reports that the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy will hold a Bali and Beyond Travel Mart in Bali in July 2014.
Mari Elka Pangestu, Minister of Tourism and the Creative Economy, explained that the planned travel mart in Bali will help Indonesia achieve its targeted 9.2 million foreign tourists in 2014.
While the specific locale in Bali for the travel mart and other dertails have yet to be announced, the Minister said: “Why in Bali? Because Bali contributes more than 40% of all foreign visitors to Indonesia while the remainder come from other regions in Indonesia.”
Pangestu said the travel mark is being placed in Bali because of the Island’s role as the gateway of Indonesian tourism. Bali serves as the port of entry for many visitors before venturing on to other locales across the archipelago.
