Seeking More Funds for Yogya and Java Relief
US$ 34 million Needed to Help Central Java and Yogya’s Culture and Tourism Recovery.
The Department of Culture and Tourism have forwarded a request to the government for a special additional allocation of Rp. 312.8 billion (approximately US$34 million) for Central Java and Yogyakarta cultural and tourism recovery following the recent devastating earthquake that struck that area.
The Minister of Culture and Tourism Jero Wacik told the Indonesian language Bisnis Indonesia that the preliminary allocation for the Department of Culture and Tourism in the State Budget stands at Rp. 801.7 billion (approximately US$87.14 million). This amount does not include the special funding requested for Java and Yogyakarta.
The Minister budget projections were made during a recent meeting with Commission X of the House of Representatives (DPR).
