Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Indonesian Embassy in Windhoek, Namibia, went all out in its efforts to promote Bali's Subak irrigation system as Indonesia's tourist attraction at the largest tourism exhibition in Namibia being held on June 5-8, 2019.
Paulina Gupta Wijaya, an Indonesian diplomat at the embassy's Economic, Information, and Socio-Culture Function, informed ANTARA here on Saturday that the Indonesian Embassy's stand bore the theme of green rice fields and the Subak irrigation system in Bali.
The diplomat pointed out that the scenic Indonesian rice fields had drawn hoards of visitors at the Namibia Tourism Expo, as they are different from Namibia's landscape of predominantly deserts and savannas.
Along with bringing the spotlight on Indonesia's myriad tourist destinations, the Indonesian Embassy also seized the opportunity presented by the Namibia Tourism Expo to support superior export products and Indonesian handicrafts. Export products from several companies in Indonesia, such as food products, beverages, palm oil, garments, cleaning tools, and others, were showcased at this exhibition.
Indonesian Ambassador to Namibia Eddy Basuki was upbeat that the economic and tourism promotion programs conducted by the Indonesian Embassy this year would whet the interest of Namibian tourists on vacation in Indonesia and Namibian businessmen doing business with Indonesia.
