Indonesian Minister of Tourism, Arief Yahya , witnessed the signing of the “ Basic Agreement Regarding Tourism Business Alliance” between UCS Supercontent Indonesia and Shobunsha Inc . Japan, which took place in the Sapta Pesona Tourism Building on Jalan Medan Merdeka Barat, Jakarta.
Soon Japanese travelers wishing to go to Indonesia will be able to download Apps to find all the information needed to visit this wonderful country.
“We chose to work together with Japan, because in several of his speeches, Tourism Minister, Arief Yahya mentioned that Japan ranks among the top five tourist markets to Indonesia.
Indeed to the Japanese, the need to travel and see the world is almost equivalent to the need to eat”, said UCS Group CEO, Imawan Mashuri.
In this cooperation, the UCS Group will collate tourist data required by the Japanese market. With the support of the Minister and the Tourism Ministry, including our use of the Wonderful Indonesia logo, this will enhance the trust of the world to Indonesia’s Tourism brand.
While, Representative Director of Sumbosha Publication Inc, Shiedo Kuroda said that today, most Japanese tourists know only Bali, while tourist information on Indonesia’s many other destinations are still scarce in Japan. Today, therefore, his company is concentrating on data that are most needed to attract Japanese tourists to Indonesia.
“Studying existing data and the large potentials that Indonesia possesses make us envious”, he said.” The expected visa free facilities for foreign tourists, Indonesia’s diverse destinations and the support of the Indonesian Government will surely attract visitors to come and visit Indonesia, especially those from Japan, said Kuroda.
The agreement covers the availability of technology in applications and tourism content, including supporting information on facilities such as on hotels, airline tickets, attractions, food and restaurants even to locations of ATM will all be included to facilitate tourist travel. The apps are designed to function as a travel planner that can be accessed online from the website as well as through Android operational functions.
