Former high-profile Trade Minister, Dr. Mari Elka Pangestu, was chosen last year by President Soesilo Yudhoyono to lead the restructured Ministry for Tourism and Creative Economy.
Minister Mari Elka Pangestu stated that establishing a new, special, and specific creative economy organization will be one of her main targets. The establishment of the organization has the purpose to clearly define the creative economy division within the ministry.
Indonesia’s Creative Economy comprises 14 broad areas: advertising, architecture, art and antique marts, handicrafts, designing, fashion, film, videos and photography, interactive games, music, artistic performances, publishing and printing, computer services and software, radio and television, and research and development.
Utilizing .travel as the Indonesia’s official tourism website, provides immediate authentication of the website’s intent and purpose.
