“The grant in the tourism sector has been increased to 3.7 trillion rupiahs [$260 million] this year from 3.3 trillion rupiahs [$231 million] last year. This is part of the programs to enhance social protection and the funds will not only be used to assist the hotels and restaurants, but also travel agencies, operators of tourist attractions, and recreational parks,” the chief minister said.
“We hope that the tourism and creative economy sector are prepared to implement the principles of cleanliness, health care, the safety of the visitors, and environmental sustainability in various aspects of activities,” he said.
