Indonesian tourist spotsThe Sales Mission event in the United Arab Emirates held on Oct. 18-19 resulted in a potential transaction totalling to Rp 34.93 billion (US$2.6 million).

“The result definitely increases our confidence,” said Tourism Ministry’s deputy minister for overseas promotion, I Gde Pitana.

During the Sales Mission event, thousands of buyers from Dubai and Abu Dhabi reportedly showed interest in Bali, “A lot of them are curious about [Saudi Arabia’s] King Salman’s vacation in Bali a few months ago,” he said.

A total of six industries from Indonesia managed to score 5,883 appointment deals at the event with a total transaction of Rp 34.93 billion.

Even though the number of foreign tourists from UAE is lower than countries such as Saudi Arabia and Oman, the number of expatriates who live in UAE along with the people who pass through the region is quite high.

There are currently more than 10 million people living in UAE, of which 1.8 million are UAE citizens while the rest are expatriates.

Wonderful Indonesia tourism brand itself has earned plenty of international recognition, including two awards at the United Nation World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Award-Tourism Video Competition.
