Ministry optimistic about meeting 17 million foreign tourists target – News – The Jakarta Post

The Tourism Ministry is optimistic the target of attracting 17 million foreign tourists by 2018 and 20 million by 2019 can be achieved.

Achieving 17 million foreign tourists by 2018 would mean a 21 percent rise from last year’s figure.

Guntur Sakti, head of the ministry’s public communications bureau, told kompas.com in Batam, Riau Islands, that to achieve this year’s target, the ministry would need special marketing strategies. “Tourism Minister Arief Yahya has stated this quite often, that extraordinary outcomes cannot be achieved with ordinary efforts,” he added.
