Director for Asia Pacific Region Marketing of the MOTCE, Wisnu Sindhutrisno, during the ASEAN NTO’s Media Briefing at the Yogyakarta Marriot Hotel on Thursday (2/2/2023), said that Indonesia’s tourism sector has gradually recovered along with the intensified vaccination program. The tourism and creative economy business actors regain tourists’ trust through the CHSE certification program.



On the other side, domestic creative economy products show positive results through the #BeliKreatiflokal, a derivative program of the Proud of Indonesian Made National Movement (Gernas BBI).

The MOTCE launched the Kharisma Event Nusantara (KEN) program that summarized 110 leading events in Indonesia, aiming to spur regions to hold massive and quality events.


“The development of tourism villages is one of the main strategies to recover our tourism as it impacts the communities in the regions, especially village communities, directly. We must continue to prioritize this,” according to Wisnu.


In addition, the MOTCE participates in exhibitions and sales missions, as well as organizes fam trips in an effort to maintain Indonesia’s tourism existence and promotion on the global stage, supported by several campaigns, such as #DiIndonesiaAja, #WonderfulJourney, #ItstimeforBali, and other destinations.


The development of higher quality, more sustainable, and digital-based five Super-Priority Tourism Destinations (DPSPs), namely Lake Toba, Borobudur, Likupang, Labuan Bajo, and Mandalika, continues to undertake. The existence of these five DPSPs is expected to boost Indonesia’s economy and create new employment opportunities.


“Tourism recovery is not instant. It takes a long time. It is about how we continue to make the efforts, step by step,” Wisnu said.
