What the coronavirus pandemic has made very clear to Indonesia’s tourism industry players and the new minister is that it will be a massive challenge to triumph during the global health crisis.
During his ceremony, Sandiaga Uno highlighted three important points regarding his leadership at the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy.
1. Health takes priority
Implementing Covid-19 health protocols is the top priority for the former Vice-Governor of Jakarta throughout the duration of the pandemic.
“We must seriously put into a force stringent health protocols. I would like to remind everyone of the importance of the ‘3M’ program.”
Sandiaga further underlined the importance of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy’s Cleanliness, Health, Safety, and Environment (CHSE) program for Indonesia’s tourism industry.
“We need to make certain that we can tackle the health side of things before we can consider reviving other sectors of the economy, particularly in tourism and creative economy."
