Indo tourism to recover in six months – Minister
July 24th, 2009

Indonesia’s vast experience dealing with crises will help the country’s tourism sector recover from the impact of last Friday’s hotel bombings in Jakarta, according to the country’s Culture and Tourism Minister, Jero Wacik. “We’ve been hit by bombs, tsunami, bird fl u and financial crises, but we’ve survived.

We always survive,” Antara reported Wacik telling a press conference in Jakarta.


“We needed just one year to recover from the second Bali bombing. I have a gut feeling this time we’ll need only six months.” He added that the Indonesia’s House of Representatives had approved additional funds of IDR94 billion (US$9.3 million) to help the tourism sector recover.


Meanwhile Xu Jing, the UNWTO’s Regional Representative for Asia Pacific, agreed that Indonesia’s resilience in the face of tragedy was proven, based on the figures achieved in the tourism sector within the first five months of 2009.


“There is an 8% decrease in tourist arrivals in the rest of the world. Indonesia is probably the only exception in the midst of all these financial and economic difficulties,” Xu was reported saying.
