Director for Domestic Tourism Promotion of the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry, Tazbir said that the domestic tourist movements during 2014 were targeted at 252 million trips.
Thus, the exhibitions that offer tourism attractions and products of creative industry in Indonesia are very effective to attract tourists to an area, according to Tazbir here on Sunday.
"Tourism exhibition has proved to have mobilized the tourist movements from one region to another," he pointed out, adding those who will travel can get more information about tourist destinations through exhibition.
Moreover, the provincial, district and citys governments across the country in cooperation with tourism organizers have been developing the potential of tourism to attract tourists to the regions.
He also hoped that tourism exhibition can be a means for the development and promotion of tourism as well as a new hope for the sustainability of the local tourism objects. (Antara)
