The Indonesian Tourist Promotion Board (BPPI) is urging more great events and great sales as a means of attracting foreign tourist visits and stimulating domestic travel.
The chairwoman of the BPPI, Wiryanti Sukamdani, said recently in Jakarta: “This is needed to attract more shopping tourists that is the current trend.”
In this context, Sukamdani proclaimed that tourism operators needs to help develop retail centers for creative products and duty free shops to take full advantage of shopping touristm.
Sukamdani feels that many locally made handicrafts would sell well in local shopping emporiums established to sell batik and handicraft products.
Sukamdani added: “There are also travel fairs and culinary exhibitions that would be very effective in attracting tourists.”
People attending such events could, in turn, purchase locally made products, local tour packages, souvenirs and culinary treats,
The BPPI chairwoman urged that major events and great sales to cities, both large and small, across the nation. This, she feels, will help draw tourists to secondary destination beyond Bali and Jakarta in Indonesia.
