Labuan Bajo, E Nusa Tenggara (ANTARA) - Deputy Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Angela Tanoesoedibjo, promoted investment in the Parapuar integrated tourism area at the 5th Komodo Travel Mart in Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara.

She said that the area, spanning 400 hectares, has a Right of Management (HPL) status from the government. It is managed as a super-priority tourism destination (DPSP) by the Labuan Bajo Flores Authority Implementing Agency (BPOLBF).

"The government encourages several schemes to increase tourism in five DPSPs," she added.

One of the schemes is the creation of special economic zones (SEZs) managed by authority agencies.

At the same event, acting BPOLBF president Frans Teguh convinced prospective investors about land legality in the Parapuar tourism area.

"There are 400 hectares in the area under the HPL, 129 hectares of which are already 'clean and clear'," he said, adding that investors can immediately use the land in the area.

He said that the land's legality is a guarantee for investors to build and develop the integrated tourism area.

Two investors have already committed to investing US$16.2 million in Parapuar.
