The tourism industry in Indonesia has risen to some serious concerns, including social costs and ecological impacts. Many ancient local cultures have practically lost their identity, with their societies increasingly orientated to this industry. Both the natural and cultural – rural or urban – landscapes have also paid a high price for certain forms of tourism, especially those involving large numbers of visitors. These problems will persist if economic benefit is the only aim, leading to economic gains that eventually become culturally ruinous. It is also important to consider that visitors nowadays are increasingly demanding cultural, environmental and social considerations before booking a holiday.
With the objective to provide a forum for industry players to exchange best practices and information on tourism, and to facilitate the sharing experiences and the building of a real network among tourism practitioners and policy makers, MVB initiated the “Sustainable Tourism Seminar” which is scheduled to be held on:
Date: Thursday, 19 September 2019
Time: 09.00 - 16.00
Venue: Djakarta Room, 2nd Floor, Raffles Jakarta, Jl. Prof. DR. Satrio No. Kav 3-5, Jakarta 12940
