Germans picked as first foreigners to visit Indonesia in 2008
January 2nd, 2008

Jakarta – German couple Michel and Jennifer Franchon Bernard did not expect to be feted as the first foreigners to visit Indonesia when on New Year’s Day they stepped into Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, a newspaper report said Wednesday. “What a surprise,” Michel Franchon Bernard told The Jakarta Post when a West Javan Sundanese dance troupe welcomed them upon their arrival. “We are very happy. We never dreamed of this happening.” The couple arrived Tuesday from Singapore for a two-week stay, during which they plan to see Jakarta, Bali and Lombok and immediately received their first souvenirs: flower wreaths and batik clothing from airport operator PT Angkasa Pura. Thewelcome was made to support the government programme Visit Indonesia Year 2008, during which the country aims to attract 7 million foreign visitors, up from 5.5 million in 2006, as well as up to 6.4 billion dollars in foreign exchange.
