Indonesia: KEN 2023 includes two tourism agendas of Central Kalimantan

 Wednesday, February 1, 2023 


Two tourism agendas of the Central Kalimantan province in Indonesia were included in the national tourism agendas of the 2023 Kharisma Event Nusantara (KEN), the Central Kalimantan Culture and Tourism Department (Disbudpar) stated.

“Two agendas (events) of Central Kalimantan are included in the national tourism calendar, i.e. the Isen Mulang Culture Festival (FBIM) and the Babukung Festival,” Head of the Central Kalimantan Disbudpar Adiah Chandra Sari said.

The KEN is a program of Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy that summarizes various tourism agendas from all provinces in Indonesia to further optimize promotions in attracting tourists from within and outside the country.

The inclusion of the regional tourism agenda in KEN is believed to provide several benefits to each region and society, to boost economic growth, and increase welfare.

Sari expressed her gratitude at the inclusion and said, “After going through several stages of curation and presentation that were carried out online, it is hoped that in future, not only two agendas will be included in the KEN but more and more regencies and cities will propose activities in their regions.”

Thousands of festivals were submitted by all provinces in Indonesia to the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) which selected 110 prestigious and quality agendas that are being recognized nationally.

Sari further noted that in 2023, the Central Kalimantan Provincial Government will hold various cultural and tourism festivals as a form of support for the national movement “Bangga Berwisata di Indonesia” (BBWI).
