Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno said the newly launched outlook could be used as a guide by tourism and creative economy players in formulating strategic plans for 2023–2024.
"I invite everyone to read the newly issued outlook. For tourism players, please ensure to see it point by point because it contains important information, including regarding Indonesia's creative economy," he added.
Uno also sought a more comprehensive review of the outlook's content through a focus group discussion (FGD). This could result in a number of recommendations regarding strategies or programs for developing the tourism and creative sector.
The ministry's deputy for strategic policies, Dessy Ruhati, explained that this year, her side is focusing on the spirit of innovation and collaboration. The guideline contains an expert survey that documents views from several leaders and experts from tourism and the creative economy sector.
In addition, the outlook also outlines the achievements of the tourism sector. Readers can also get information on the latest data and statistics, especially regarding the growth of the sector, its economic contribution, and significant events affecting it.
Furthermore, she informed, it covers the conditions and dynamics of the strategic environment that affects the sector, including an analysis of the macroeconomics and digital transformation that effect changes in tourism and creative economy, among others.
"Of course, the digitalization of products and artificial intelligence have a significant role and create challenges related to intellectual property rights," she said.
She expressed the hope that going forward, digitalization and business players' capacity-building programs would continue to remain a focus.
