Longki as quoted in a statement, adding that Central Sulawesi had a number of interesting attractions, including the Togean Islands National Park and Lore Lindu National Park said that the tourism sector is very important for Central Sulawesi.

Meanwhile, Sitti confirmed the NTB administration’s plan to strengthen the development of tourism infrastructure, including plans to build the Mandalika tourism circuits and complexes, as well as organizing various tourism sports events, such as the Tour de Lombok and the Sumbawa Cross Marathon.

The data from Statistics Indonesia (BPS) shows that 15.8 million foreign tourists visited Indonesia last year.
