Targeting the domestic market is at the heart of the tourism ministry’s strategy to restore Indonesia’s national economy that has been hit hard during the coronavirus pandemic, said the spokesperson for the Covid-19 Task Force at Indonesia’s tourism ministry, Ari Juliano Gema.
To win over Indonesian tourists, the ministry will launch its #DiIndonesiaAja (#JustStayinIndonesia) social media campaign.
The campaign seeks to encourage Indonesian tourists to travel domestically while adhering to the ministry’s ‘Cleanliness, Health, and Safety’ (CHS) health protocols.
The CHS health protocols recently went into effect and are the ministry’s attempt to address the Covid-19 crisis in the new normal.
“Digital guidebooks and creative content creation partnering with hotels, restaurants, and other creative economy sectors will soon be launched,” said Ari in an official statement to Kompas.com on July 3.
Foreigners not forgotten
Indonesia’s tourism ministry has also prepared a range of strategies to lure foreign tourists to visit the country in the new normal.
The ministry has continued its soft promotion strategies namely through its #DreamNow #TravelTomorrow campaign.
