Placing tourism and creative industries under a single ministry in Indonesia sparks debate

Published on : Friday, November 29, 2019

In Indonesia, the decision to again place tourism and creative industries under a single ministry has given rise to public debate. The government said that the merger into the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry is necessarily due to the similarities between the two fields, especially in that both sectors benefit from creativity.

 

Critics said that combining the two might restrain the development of the creative industries, which contributed 7 percent to gross domestic product (GDP) in 2015, according to Statistics Indonesia (BPS). They are of the opinion that merging the two fields under a single management source oversimplifies the complexities of the creative industries, which have 16 subsectors. Since its rise to eminence in the 1990s, the creative industries have faced issues related not only to their definition and scope but also policy treatment in their development.
