jakartaIn the inaugural ceremony of the 11th Festival Keraton Nusantara (Archipelago Palaces) at Maimun Castle in Medan, North Sumatra, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo asked the royal kings, sultans and kraton high-ranking officials to focus on the development of heritage tourism.



“Plenty of countries develop their tourism based on historical sites such as castles in Japan, Europe and United Kingdom. As long as it’s supported by background stories, tourists will be interested,” said Jokowi.



He added that the meeting with the royalties will be held in December at the Presidential Palace. “I’ve told Sultan Kasepuhan Cirebon [that the meeting] will probably be held in early or mid December. I want to invite several people to talk about kraton palaces in the archipelago; maybe 20-30 people will participate.”



Jokowi also stated that he is sure that the kings and sultans have been trusted by their predecessors to protect the people and preserve the unity.



With the hope to develop the festival furthermore, he focused on the fact that it is more than just any educational or cultural platform but also serve to improve the regional economy.
