The Indonesian government is counting on the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum 2013 (APEC) to support the creative economy and increase foreign tourist arrivals to Indonesia.

Quoted by, Nia Niscaya, Director of International Tourist Promotion from the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy, said she was hopeful that foreign tourist arrivals would increase while, at the same time, stimulating the national creative economy.

“We are certain that we possess great creativity that can be offered to the world through music, handicrafts, culinary skills and fashion that are already known internationally and are influencing fashion and lifestyle trends,” said Nia at the ASEAN Tourism Fair in Vientiane, Laos on Thursday, January 24, 2013.

According to data supplied by the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy, the tourism sector provides employment to 8.28 million people – a total equal to 8.37 % of all workers.

Nia added that Bali as the host of APEC 2013 – a conference that has adopted “Resilient Asia Pacific – Engine of Global Growth” as its theme, has prepared new roads and a upgraded airport facility to welcome the delegates – all scheduled to be ready in time for the Summit.

The government is calling on the nation’s travel industry to take advantage of the synergy provided by APEC 2013 to promote Bali and other destinations across the archipelago.

Nia reported that investments in tourism in Indonesia continue to grow.

New investments in hotels and restaurants in 2012 totaled US$242 million, three times more than the total investments in 2012.
