However, these efforts are considered still hampered by Regulation of the Minister of Law and Human Rights (Permenkumham) Number 11 of 2020 concerning the temporary prohibition of the arrival of foreigners from entering Indonesian territory.
Assistant Deputy for Sustainable Tourism Development, Deputy for Tourism Coordination and Creative Economy at the Coordinating Ministry for Tourism, Marves Kosmas Harefa stated that the government will continue to see the dynamics that occur, as well as through in-depth studies and continue to adhere to the principle of prudence in making policies.
"Permenkumham 11/2020 is still in effect, but there are certain exceptions, such as medical urgent and other important matters, we will follow the dynamics, but we will still consider, to be sure, Kemenkumham will revise according to the dynamics," explained Kosmas in a statement received by Kompas. .com, Saturday (8/8/2020).
An absolute prerequisite for opening a tour is the application of health protocols in each tourist destination.
For example, the Borobudur Authority Agency (BOB) has implemented training and mentoring programs, specifically implementing health protocols in the parekraf sector.
Then, for the development of the Toba Caldera which has been designated as a UNESCO Global Geopark recently, representatives of the Lake Toba Tourism Authority (BPODT) Arie Prasetyo revealed that the government will remain focused on improving amenities, attractions and full support for UMKMs.
"With the Unesco Global Geopark, our focus is on conservation and education, and community development can be improved. The hope is that this can have an economic impact on the local community by having a tourist village with a very strong cultural character. Hopefully, we already have a blueprint that is a very strong target for the next 25 years," he said. (*)
