Indonesia recently ranked fourth in the Halal Travel Indicator, a ranking system that lists the world's top 10 countries considered to have a well-developed halal travel ecosystem. A part of the Global Islamic Economy Indicator -GIEI, the ranking assesses a country’s ecosystem, including supply and demand drivers relative to its size, governance, awareness and social considerations. The Halal Travel Indicator was first launched in 2014 as part of the 2014 State of the Global Islamic Economy Report initiated by Thomson Reuters in collaboration with Dinar-Standard, a growth strategy research and advisory system. This is the first time Indonesia was included in the top 10. The top three countries in the recently released Halal Travel Indicator were Malaysia, United Arab Emirates and Turkey. Indonesia has set a target to attract at least 3.8 and 5 million Muslim visitors in 2018 and 2019, respectively. To reach the target, Indonesian Tourism Ministry is expected to allocate a larger budget toward halal tourism to be invested in sales missions and trade shows. (JP)
