“State firms need to return to their respective core businesses. In the hotel industry, for example, there is a need to rearrange the subsidiary of state firm hotels. So that the relevant parent company will only run its core business,” said State-Owned Enterprises Deputy Minister Kartika Wirjoatmodjo in a statement.

The signing was the first step to promote government programs in the tourism sector as well as to increase competitiveness and value-added from the business consolidation of the state firm hotels.

“State-owned hotels are located in very strategic locations. If we can focus on providing good services, the state-owned hotels may be the pride of Indonesia,” said Kartika.
