On a personal level, Pangestu said she highly prized the many achievements of Jero Wacik during his tenure as Indonesia’s Minister of Culture and Tourism.

In the future, Pangestu, who come to her new post after serving as Indonesia’s Minister of Trade, said she felt there is a need for discussions to be held on the structure and organization of the ministry she will lead. Referring to the new responsibility for the “creative economy” contained in the portfolio of her restructured ministry, Pangestu said, "I think we need to discuss what part (of the ministry) will handle the creative economy.”

Pangestu has already underlined her intention to make tourism and the creative economy sectors an important source of revenues for the national economy.
