2017 a Record Year for Indonesia Tourism – WTTC

New research released by World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) showed that 2017 was a record year for Indonesia’ travel and tourism industry.

The sector contributed IDR787.1 billion (USD57.2 billion) to the national economy during 2017.

Overall, Indonesia’s travel and tourism economy grew by 6.4 percent, faster than the 5.1 percent recorded for the wider economy.

In 2017, travel and tourism supported 12.2 million jobs and 10 percent of total Indonesian employment, making it the fourth highest of any country worldwide, according to WTTC.

By 2028 almost 17 million jobs are forecast to be dependent on Indonesia’s travel and tourism sectors.

“Indonesia is growing faster than almost every other country globally. Much of this growth can be attributed to the positive decision by the government to remove travel visas for citizens of 169 countries which has made Indonesia one of the world’s most open countries,” remarked Gloria Guevara, CEO, WTTC.
