East Nusa Tenggara wins national tourism contest

East Nusa Tenggara emerged as the first winner of the 2nd Indonesian tourism contest 2007 held at the Ksirarnawa Cultural Park in Denpasar, Bali, on Monday.

East Nusa Tenggara was represented by Heidris Donaldo Kiha and Magdalena Louisa Manongga who managed to eliminate 24 other participants in the contest.

General chairman of the foundation of the Indonesian tourism envoy association (ADWINDO) Dr Gusti Ngurah Arya Wedakarna said the activity was a forum to unite all tourism envoys in Indonesia at national events as they had yet to share the same vision.

“We observe that tourism envoys at district, city or provincial levels have different visions and missions on Indonesia`s tourism,” Wedakarna said.

He further said tourism envoys in the country were often not in synergy to promote Indonesia but tended to give priority to exposing their respective areas.

Wedakarna said the 3rd Indonesia tourism contest 2008 was expected to take lace in Bangka Belitung province.

“Next year, Bangka Belitung province will host the Indonesian tourism contest at national level. Thus, we hope the province would make preparations for the upcoming event from now on,” he said.

On the 2007 national tourism contest, East Java and Central Java came up as the second and third winners respectively.

The event also declared representatives from Nangroe Aceh Darussalam as intelligence tourism envoys 2007, representatives from Papua as peace tourism envoys and those from Bangka Belitung as friendship tourism envoys. (*)
