The government of Indonesia has a strategic plan to increase the number of tourists visiting its territory to 20 million by 2020. Building on the success of Bali, this ambitious goal will inject investment across ten designated undeveloped natural hotspots, putting the infrastructure needed in place to support the next phase of development.
The ‘10 New Bali’s’ will showcase some of Indonesia’s most beautiful areas – each targeted for their potential and scope – to become outstanding tourism attractions.
With the right type of development and infrastructure to facilitate this development, more locations will be put on the map and made accessible to tourists as the next new ‘places to be’ in Indonesia.
Investment on such scale from the government gives confidence and assurance to individual investors whom we work on behalf making Indonesia an opportune place for investment.
Tourism figures for 2018 stood at 15.8 million, a 13 percent increase on the previous year. With an investment plan now in place, the government looks set to reach or even exceed their target market.
The knock-on effect of continued growth, will, in turn, create thousands of new jobs across industries, increasing the national GDP and raising the standards of living and opportunities to its local population.
The stunning archipelago that is might have once been known for exporting exotic spices, as well as natural resources such as oil and gas, copper, tin, precious metals such as gold; and plywood, rubber, and textiles. But one of its main assets by far is its characteristic unspoiled physical geography.
It is been a long time coming that this land peppered by its unique mix of signature volcanos, fertile forests, mountain ranges, unique flora and fauna and a rich cultural diversity shown in its plethora of indigenous architectural styles seen across the territory, gets the recognition it deserves in terms of quality development, tourism.
