INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Revenue of PT Panorama Sentrawisata Tbk (PANR), an integrated tourism company in Indonesia, is targeted to grow 20 percent by 2018. The company's revenue this year is targeted to increase only 18 percent.

According to PANR 2016 financial statements, the realization of PANR's revenue amounted to Rp2.13 trillion. Thus, PANR's revenue is targeted to reach around Rp2.51 trillion in 2017 and Rp3 trillion in 2018.

PANR's positive financial performance throughout 2017 is underpinned by the rapid development of Indonesia's tourism industry in line with the spirit of Indonesia Incorporated launched by Arief Yahya, the Minister of Tourism.

"Our revenue growth both this year and next year is supported by the rapid development of the tourism industry contributed by the Indonesian government in increasing the promotion and visits of foreign tourists to Indonesia," said Budi Tirtawisata, President Director of PANR, in Jakarta on Thursday (21/12/2017 ).

Budi explained, to achieve revenue target next year, PANR management allocates capital expenditure (capital expenditure / capex) of Rp 50 billion.

"The rapidly growing tourism industry today, the tourism business is not the same as before but we see a very good opportunity next year," said Budi.

Budi asserted, another factor contributing to the company's revenue growth is the current era of "leisure economy", where people are turning to buy "experience" compared to tourism products. That is coupled with the demographic bonus.

To reach a stronger and wider range in this segment, Panorama Sentrawisata earlier this year in synergy with JTB Corporation, a leading travel company in Japan and in Asia Pacific.

"We have developed several strategic steps to deal with this dynamic business, one of them by ensuring synergy and integration among business enterprises to get competitive price," said Budi.

"We are very optimistic about the company's performance improvement next year in line with the advance movement of the tourism industry," added Budi.

In addition, Panorama Sentrawisata will also continue to collaborate with the Ministry of Tourism through Wonderful Indonesia co-branding in reaching the target of 20 million foreign tourists in 2019. (Abraham Sihombing)
