"Thus, the country will take a leap in the tourism sector as well as in the management of the tourism ecosystem and its supporters," President Jokowi stated at a limited meeting at the Merdeka Palace, here on Thursday.
The head of state highlighted the significance of support from the world of aviation that had to be streamlined through more integrated management.
Jokowi called for greater consolidation of flights, from upstream to downstream.
"This has never been done, starting from airline to airport and flight service management," the president noted.
The president is looking for it to be connected to destination management as well as with hotel and travel management.
"This should also extend to the management of local products and creative industries that we have," he stated.
The Central Statistics Agency (BPS) announced that Indonesia's economy contracted by 5.32 percent in the second quarter.
"I saw that the tourism and aviation sectors were impacted and had deeply contracted," the president stated. (antara)
