INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The number of tourist agendas promoted through Calendar of Event 2017 includes 102 agendas spread over 34 provinces. On the national agenda, each region proposes at least three excellent activities.

According to Deputy of Tourism Destination and Tourism Industry Development Dadang Rizki Ratman said the Ministry of Tourism (Kemenpar) expects the tour calendar can run consistently so as not to cause confusion of tourists, especially foreign tourists (tourists).

Industry players should be able to take advantage of festivals in the region, for example by providing culinary, accommodation, to create new attractions. The existence of festivals in Indonesia is expected to contribute significantly to the achievement of the target of foreign tourists visiting up to 15 million this year and 20 million in 2019, he told the media crew recently.

It is said, as is the case recently when the government began to intensively held a sports tourism festival (sport tourism). To date, Indonesia has four major sports tourism related agendas that have been routinely held namely Tour de Singkarak, Tour de Flores, Tour de Linggarjati, and Tour de Jatiluhur.

Based on data from Ministry of Tourism, Indonesia's tourism product portfolio is still dominated by culture with 60% contribution, followed by nature 35%, and 5% manmade tour, he said.
