PATA expected to improve tourism industry

Indonesia`s preparedness to hold the Pacific Asian Travel Association (PATA) Travel Mart 2007 meeting in the resort island of Bali on Sept 26-28 is expected to help improve the country`s tourism industry.

"The decline of Indonesian tourism in the last two years due to natural disasters, security problems and the avian flu attack are expected to be gradually halted," Culture and Tourism Minister Jero Wacik said here on Monday.

The government and people involved in the tourism affairs have expressed a strong commitment to normalize the condition of the country`s tourism, he said.

Therefore, all components of the tourism related parties are determined to make the PATA meeting a success, the minister said.

The meeting which will take place in Nusa Dua, Bali, will be participated in by some 1,500 tourism businessmen from 50 Bangkok-based PATA member countries.
