(2/17/2007)

As reported on www.balidiscovery.com [Bali and Indonesia Targets Growth in 2007 Arrivals], Indonesia's Vice-President Jusuf Kalla is urging the Department of Culture and Tourism to set ambitious foreign tourist arrival targets for 2007.

The February 13, 2007 edition of the Indonesian-language Bali Post carried a brief interview with the Vice-President.

The Interview: Vice President Jusuf Kalla

Bali Post: What is the reason for increasing the visitors target foreign tourists?

Jusuf Kalla: It's like this. The situation in Indonesia continues to improve, stability and security are now more conducive. Because of this the target for foreign tourists for 2007 must be increased to become 6 million. After that, in 2008, the target should be 7 million foreign tourists.

Bali Post: Other reasons?

Jusuf Kalla: This has a connection with the earlier target. The problem is that for the past ten years arrivals have averaged around 5 million foreign tourists. What's more saddening, in 2006 foreign arrivals dropped to only 4.8 million. The target for foreign tourist arrivals must be increased in order that the working synergy between the Department of Culture and Tourism and the tourism industry can be escalated.

Bali Post: Is this limited to just increasing targets?

Jusuf Kalla: Of course not, more must be done. With a higher target in hand a number of other steps can be pursued. One of these is seeking a larger promotional budget so that sub targets for main international source markets, traditional source markets and new markets can be realized. The Department of Culture and Tourism must seek additional funding from the Department of Finance; while the Minister of Transportation must ensure air access and (airline) seat availability is oriented towards Indonesian tourist objects already known internationally.

Bali Post: Other steps?

Jusuf Kalla: Yes . . .the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department Justice and Human Rights need to also make visas-on-arrival process easier for foreign tourists coming to Indonesia.

Bali Post: Is there a guarantee of security?

Jusuf Kalla: This is most important. The Chief of the National Police Force has to be prepared to secure the Country and keep it conducive so tourists are not worried about coming to Indonesia. The tourism industry must also work together again to handle the growing number of foreign tourists.
