Gov’t Rolls Out Assistance for Small, Medium Tourism Businesses
Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy has launched this year’s Government Assistance for Tourism Business (BPUP) to support small and medium tourism businesses.
“The program shows our commitment to continuously provide targeted, beneficial and timely assistance to create jobs, as well as increase economic growth and community welfare,” Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno said as quoted by the Ministry’s website, Friday (11/19).
For the record, the BPUP is a government assistance provided to small and medium tourism businesses registered with the Ministry of Investment’s Online Single Submission (OSS) System in the period of 2018-2020.
