He visited the public service market in the area to get a closer look at how the facility provides services for the people such as printing family cards and identity cards. Accompanying him was the Head of Investment Agency and One Stop Integrated Services Office at Banyuwangi Regency Wawan Yatmadi.

From the market, the president then visited Villa So Long and So Long Beach to see the preparation of tourism operators to enter the new normal. Jokowi said that Banyuwangi is one of the areas that have improved their tourism sector amid Covid-19 pandemic. This includes the implementation of health protocols by using technology for tourist capacity management.

Travelers are required to apply online before visiting a tourist destination. The system will automatically stop the registration process when reaching a certain number of visitors based on the physical distancing measures.

The local government also conducts competency tests on health protocols for tour guides by involving medical experts. The tour guides will also be trained to have better understanding about health protocols. "I see that Banyuwangi is the most ready area in preparing programs toward the new normal," Jokowi said.
