Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Mari Elka Pangestu has revealed that the competitiveness of Indonesian tourism improved from a ranking of 81 in 2009 to 74 in 2011, out of 139 countries.

Despite the improvement, however, Indonesia ranked far below other ASEAN countries like Singapore (16), Malaysia (32) and Thailand (42).
She said the lack of competitiveness among professionals in the tourism industry plus the lack of capacity and quality in research and development had hampered the development of tourism in the country.
