Indonesia tourism sector to become the leading one according to the ministry of tourism plans.
The Ministry of Tourism aims to develop digital tourism and village homestays, as well as reform the industry to become Indonesia’s leading sector and economic core, Tourism Minister Arief Yahya said on Saturday (20/5)
“Indonesia has to become the world’s best in digital tourism and village homestays,” Arief said. He added that tourism must become the core of the country’s economy and leading sector
The #Indonesia Tourism Exchange (ITX) platform has been at the forefront of the ministry’s efforts to improve digital tourism. The online marketplace links customers with service providers, such as travel agents and more.
