Balige, North Sumatera (ANTARA) - The Communication and Informatics Ministry has prepared media centers at two locations for the FI Powerboat Lake Toba 2023 international race event, the ministry's Economy and Maritime Information and Communication Director Septriana noted here Friday.

These media centers are prepared with the strategic objective of meeting the people's demand for information on the global event, with Indonesia serving as the host.

"They are also prepared to facilitate the performance of media crew in covering and spreading positive information concerning this F1 Powerboat Lake event," she remarked.

The first media center is located at the Mulia Raja Napitupulu Harbor Building. The working space for media crew is 11x7 meters wide and can be occupied by around 80 journalists.

Facilities in the media center comprise a TV room, work desks, and chairs that also come with 10 laptops and high-speed internet network.

The second floor of the building also has a room for press conferences that will be routinely held and feature various competent event-related speakers.

"The facilities at both media centers are the same. There is no difference," she stated.

These facilities are provided to ensure the best service to the media crew, she affirmed.

Thus, Septriana believes that positive stories concerning the championship, specifically on Indonesian tourism, in relation to Lake Toba, as one of Indonesia's Super Priority Tourism Destinations, can be echoed to the entire world.

The ministry will continue to provide information through routine press statements to the media crew to facilitate reporting.

"As a closure, we expect that this event can bring major and positive benefits to the people of Toba, in particular, and the citizens of Indonesia, in general," she affirmed.

"Let us make the F1 Powerboat Lake Toba 2023 a success," Septriana remarked.
