The Indonesian Government provided a guarantee in the ease of business for the investors who plant their assets in special economic zones.
In the tourism sector, Tourism Minister Arief Yahya explained that the government plans to restore a number of infrastructures such as the airports, the network of highways that lead to the tourist spots, and other public facilities.
“The ease [of business] will be for the ones in the economic zones,” Arief said on Thursday, May 25.
The government will also attempt to fix the management system in tourism areas. This is corroborated by the fact that, in a number of cases, investments are not able to enter a location because of overlapping regulations which are a direct result of mismanagements.
Ideally, according to Arief, a tourist location should only be managed by one authority. He viewed that it would slash the bureaucracy process and affect the process of managing a tourist location.
“Regarding the Bunaken area, we will have a meeting to discuss the resolution of the special zone with the Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs,” Arief explained.
