The award was received by Vincensius Jemadu, assistant to the Deputy for Asia and Pacific Market Development of the Tourism Ministry, in Taipei on Friday, the ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

“We had closely observed Indonesia for this award. We went directly to Indonesia. We dived, we witnessed the beauty of Indonesia. We made coordination with our team in Indonesia. And finally, we decided that Indonesia deserves this award,” Chairman of the DRT Organizing Committee Jason Chong said during the award presentation ceremony on Friday June 17.

Having over 17,000 islands and located in the center of the Coral Triangle Area, Indonesia is the best choice for diving tourism.

Tourism Minister Arief Yahya said Indonesia has huge potential because two third of the world’s coral and biodiversity are in Indonesia.


The minister said he was not surprised that Indonesia won the award, but it would have been strange if the country did not receive the award.
