Indonesia is promoting its tourism potentials in the biggest tourism promotion exhibition "Vakantiebeurs 2009" in Utrecht, Netherlands, from January 13 to 18, 2009.
Cultural affairs councillor at the Indonesian Embassy in The Hague Firdaus Dahlan said here Monday that the Indonesian participation in the annual event was aimed at increasing the number of Dutch tourists visiting Indonesia.
He said Dutch tourists were known for their long vacations in destination countries. This, he said, would be a fine opportunity in the Netherlands to intensify the promotion of Indonesia's tourist objects.
According to Firdaus, some 1.6 million Dutch tourists wished to visit Indonesia, a former Dutch colony.
