The Regent of Bintan, Apri Sujadi - The Regent of Bintan, Apri Sujadi has big dreams, the Lagoi tourist area could be a mainstay. These are all efforts to revive the Bintan economy in terms of tourism after being hit by Covid-19.

In this case, Apri encourages the Lagoi tourist area to develop circuit development for luxury cars from neighboring Singapore and Malaysia. As for Ferrari, Lamborghini and others.

He proposed this when talking to the Minister of Tourism, Wishnutama. He asked the Ministry of Tourism (Kemenpar) of the Republic of Indonesia to be able to help encourage the construction of the circuit. 

"This is an opportunity where we hope there is interference from the Ministry of Tourism, especially, with the Lagoi area which reaches around 23 thousand hectares, I am sure the construction of the circuit can be realized," Apri said, Monday (1/6/2020).

According to Apri, so far Singaporeans who like collecting luxury cars do not have a circuit to play. They only rely on the borderline between Singapore and Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

"Yesterday, I met with friends in Singapore. They admit they really need the circuit at Lagoi," he said. 

He continued, if this is realized, it will be able to boost foreign tourists visiting Lagoi. In addition, it can also improve the economy in Bintan Regency, where 60 percent of the Regional Original Revenue (PAD) is donated from the tourism sector.

Apri also said this effort was at the same time a new breakthrough for the Bintan Regency Government to further raise destinations in Bintan to be more attractive to foreign tourists visiting.

"So far, Bintan has indeed focused on sport tourism," he explained. 

Separately the Minister of Tourism, Wishnutama welcomed the proposal to build a luxury car circuit in Lagoi. He promised to learn more about the proposal. 

He said, Kemenpar through Deputy MICE, Events, and Tourism Products do have several plans to increase tourism activities to bring in more tourists to Lagoi

One of them, namely, even like a music festival that resembles Tomorrowland, which is an electronic dance festival in the country of Belgium. 

Kemenpar will also coordinate with Lagoi to prepare a location for holding similar events, such as concerts and so on. 

"The location was made multifunctional. It could also be for luxury car circuits, as stated by the Regent," Wishnutama said. ( Alfandi/Roma)
