Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Ministry of Culture and Tourism has projected the number of foreign tourists to Indonesia in 2009 would increase by 6.2 percent, or 6.7 million.

The statement was made by the Ministry`s marketing director general Sapta Nirwandar when disclosing the result of the 2009 Tourism Marketing Working Meeting in Jakarta on Wednesday.

"Three different targets of number of foreign tourists to Indonesia in 2009 had been set. The first is an optimistic target of a growth of 6.2 percent of the 2008 figure, the second is a moderate target with a 4 percent growth, and the third is a pessimistic target of the same number of this year`s foreign tourists," Sapta said.

Minister of Culture and Tourism Jero Wacik on Wednesday predicted the number of this year`s foreign tourists at 6.4 million with 6.2 billion US dollars in foreign exchange revenue which was also predicted by the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS), namely 6.3 - 6.4 million.

Sapta said while the the United Nations World Tourism Organization estimated the growth of tourism in the Asia Pacific region would decline by 4.3 percent, in view of the impact of the global financial crisis, but it was hoped Indonesia would not be so seriously affected by the crisis. (*)
