June 30, 2020, 06.49 PM – Indonesia's tourism sector took a beating from the combination of the coronavirus pandemic and the low level of trust from tourists.

Businesses in the tourism sector have been among the most severely affected since the Covid-19 virus first came to light, Deputy of Marketing at the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy Nia Niscaya said recently.

Nia shared her thoughts on Indonesia’s tourism sector as well as the country’s travel agents during an event with the Association of Indonesian Tours and Travel Agencies (ASITA) on June 27.

“Indonesia is experiencing a lack of trust from domestic and international tourists. Therefore, we must work together to build up the trust of tourists,” Nia said in a written statement.
