Researcher of the Indonesian Institute of Sciences -LIPI, Pangky Tri Febiansyah told media after Media Briefing at LIPI’s Building in Jakarta on Wednesday (17/10) said that the existence of tourism infrastructure must confirm the importance of government to design comprehensive strategy. He said that the government must give easiness for foreigners to have holidays in Indonesia.
“Minimally, it is not only physical infrastructure, but also how the entry process of people’s attendance can be better. So, the infrastructure of tourists can be better. Take for example, the management of making visa to Indonesia is good. So, we encourage the infrastructure there because the target is how the people can enter faster,” said Pangky Tri Febiansyah.
Besides, Pangky Tri Febiansyah also explained that the design of tourism development which is comprehensively competitive must include physical infrastructure pillars, such as human resources, finance and system. He added that the dimension is expected to be a benchmark in a bid to materialize the quality tourism sector both as alternative income resources and the nation’s identity in a global spectrum.
