The four-day event, named 2017 Festsinfest (Festival of Indonesian Festivals), highlights the arts and cultural performances from the ten new tour destinations now developed by the ministry and related agencies.
Those new tour destinations are highly expected to par with Bali in attracting foreign tourists as well as generating revenues for locals involved in tourism industry and regional governments as well.
“The cultural and art performances, entitled 10DEST.I.Nation, would give audiences the experiences to explore the soul of the nation,” Deputy Minister Esthy Reko Astuti said in a statement on Thursday.
She added that each of the new ten destinations would present performance, themed from the region’s most prominent feature.
Indonesia has declared tourism sector as the nation’s core business, expecting to welcome 20 million foreign visitors and earn more than 24 billion U.S. dollars from the sector by 2019.
