Indonesian Embassy highlights Subak as Indonesia’s tourist attraction

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Indonesian Embassy in Windhoek, Namibia, went all out in its efforts to promote Bali’s Subak irrigation system as Indonesia’s tourist attraction at the largest tourism exhibition in Namibia being held on June 5-8, 2019.

Paulina Gupta Wijaya, an Indonesian diplomat at the embassy’s Economic, Information, and Socio-Culture Function, informed ANTARA here on Saturday that the Indonesian Embassy’s stand bore the theme of green rice fields and the Subak irrigation system in Bali.

The diplomat pointed out that the scenic Indonesian rice fields had drawn hoards of visitors at the Namibia Tourism Expo, as they are different from Namibia’s landscape of predominantly deserts and savannas.

Along with bringing the spotlight on Indonesia’s myriad tourist destinations, the Indonesian Embassy also seized the opportunity presented by the Namibia Tourism Expo to support superior export products and Indonesian handicrafts. Export products from several companies in Indonesia, such as food products, beverages, palm oil, garments, cleaning tools, and others, were showcased at this exhibition.

Indonesian Ambassador to Namibia Eddy Basuki was upbeat that the economic and tourism promotion programs conducted by the Indonesian Embassy this year would whet the interest of Namibian tourists on vacation in Indonesia and Namibian businessmen doing business with Indonesia.

Qatari Emir’s visit to Maumere may boost tourism

Kupang (ANTARA) – The East Nusa Tenggara provincial government expects Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Tsani’s visit to Maumere, Sikka District, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), to have a catalytic effect in increasing tourist visits to the province.

“We welcome (the emir) to Maumere. This sojourn can drive tourist visits to our region, taking into account the fact that he is the Qatar king’s son, ” Head of the Provincial Secretariat Marius Ardu Jelamu informed ANTARA here on Saturday.

The Qatari emir landed in Maumere on Friday (June 7) with a group aboard two private jets and a cruise ship that had arrived in Maumere Bay on Thursday (June 6).

The former NTT tourism head could not as yet ascertain the length of their stay in Maumere and the objective behind the visit.

“However, it is beyond doubt that NTT will gain increasing popularity. In addition, several will wonder why the son of the King of Qatar is keen on visiting NTT,” he emphasized.

He further added that Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Tsani choosing to visit NTT, Indonesia, is testament to the fact that Indonesia was an increasingly tolerant nation.

The provincial government is upbeat that the Qatari emir’s visit to NTT would draw more investors from Qatar to invest in the region, starting from the tourism, land, and air sectors.

“I believe NTT, especially Maumere, the location of his visit, will bear witness to several positive impacts,” Jelamu noted.

Members of the entourage comprised Sultan Ghanim S. Alhodaifi Al-Kuwari, Abdulla Mohammed M.S. AL-Khulaifi, Abdulhadi Awajan H.F. Al-Hajri, Abdulhadi Khalil M.A. Al-Hajri, Ali Hamad SA, Al-Hajri, Jaralla Mihd TB Al-Nabet, Khalifa FA Kayed Al-Muhannadi, Mansour Faleh F Al-Hajri, Abdulla Mohammed SL Al-Khayarin, Aboobacker Siddique Pookkayil, Gocha Jibuti, Abdulla Jaber AA Al-Sulati, Mohammad Noor Abdulghafor, and Edward Estores.
