Indonesia Tourism Development

Various international organizations including UN, World Bank and World Tourism Organization (WTO), has acknowledged that tourism is an integral part of human life, especially concerning social and economic activities. Starting from activities that previously only enjoyed by a handful of people who are relatively rich in the early 20th century, have now become part of human rights, as stated by John Naisbitt in his book Global Paradox namely, that "w here once travel was Considered a privilege of the moneyed elite, now it is Considered a basic human right. This happens not only in developed countries but began to be felt also in developing countries including Indonesia.
In this connection, various countries including Indonesia, were also enjoying the impact of increased tourism world, especially in the period 1990 to 1996. The storm of economic crisis that hit Indonesia since late 1997, is a very valuable experience for the Indonesian tourism community to re-positioning as well as the re-vitalization of Indonesian tourism.

Growth in tourist numbers in the decade of the 90s by 4.2% while revenue growth of 7.3 percent of foreign tourists, even in 28 state revenue grew 15 cent per year.

This number will further increase with the ease to access an area.
On the basis of these figures then pantutlah if tourism is categorized into the world's largest industrial group (the World's Largest Industry), as stated also by John Naisbitt in the book above. Approximately 8 percent of exports of goods and services, is generally derived from the tourism sector. And tourism has become the largest contributor in international trade from the services sector, approximately 37 percent, including 5-top exports 83% of the country categories at the WTO, the main source of foreign exchange in 38% of the country and in Southeast Asian tourism to contribute 10 -12 percent of GDP and 7-8 percent of total employement
