Promoting green tourism in Indonesia will be one of the highlighted programs in 2024. The MoTCE also collaborates with the Indonesian creative industry Dus Duk Duk in the construction of focal point decorations with environment-friendly materials. Decorations such as Borobudur temple stupa, Prambanan temple gate, and Javanese Gunungan are made of 100% recycled cardboard to show commitment in promoting sustainable tourism.
Ni Made Ayu Marthini, Deputy Minister for Marketing of the MoTCE, said Indonesia, especially Bali, has become top of mind for Indian tourists for the family, honeymoon, wedding, MICE and luxury segments. So, apart from that, the MoTCE is promoting other wonderful Indonesian destinations to Indian travellers and offering these destinations as filming locations for the Indian film industry.
“We know that the Indian film industry is huge, and Indonesia has various destinations with beautiful landscapes and unique cultures that will be very interesting to display for the Indian film audience. We have recently launched a filming location ecosystem platform called the Indonesia Film Facilitation (IFFa) www.iffa.id, as convenient access for international filmmakers to various beautiful film locations in Indonesia. Promoting destinations through film can introduce more Indonesian tourism destinations and encourage more Indian travellers to visit Indonesia.”
