Indonesian Tourism Board (BPPI) chairwoman Wiryanti Sukamdani said on Wednesday that the board would get more capital this year by partnering with at least six companies.
“The companies are on the same page as us and are committed to helping us promote Indonesia to the world,” Wiryanti told The Jakarta Post over the phone.
She refused to mention the name of the companies or how much money they would inject, but said some of them were foreign companies.
“This is going to be a strategic joint venture and benefit tourism in Indonesia,” she said.
The tourism board has been armed with a budget of Rp 23 billion (US$2.55 million) from the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry.
The BPPI is working on how to attract more tourists during low season, promote green tourism and boost creative tourism.
The board recently finished formulating its promotional programs, which will be effectively implemented in May, she said.
