Remarks of President of the Republic of Indonesia on the Launching of National Karisma Event Festival, January 28, 2023
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
May prosperity be upon us all,
Greetings of virtue.
Ladies and gentlemen, my fellow countrypersons,
This year will be a moment of revival of Indonesian tourism, a very good time to rise up and boost the growth of Indonesia’s tourism sector as fast as possible.
We have launched the ‘National Movement of Proud of Traveling in Indonesia’, to invite more people to travel in the country, to boost the growth of domestic tourists by up to two folds than the previous year. For that, we must collaborate, work together to improve the quality of destinations, add more interesting attractions and events, display innovation and creativity to increase competitiveness.
This year there will be 110 National Karisma Events and 65 Sport Music Creative Events in all over Indonesia, which will be a magnet to attract as many domestic and foreign tourists as possible, to come and enjoy the uniqueness of tourism throughout the country. These events with the spirit of sustainability will be a good promotion to improve the image of Indonesian tourism in the eyes of domestic and foreign tourists.
I believe that with the various efforts we have made, including improving tourism facilities and infrastructure, ease of transportation and connectivity, preparing the readiness of human resources and accommodation, our tourism and creative economy sectors will rise and recover stronger.
By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, I launch 2023 National Karisma Event today. Thank you.
Wassalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Om santi santi om.
