bbn/kemenparekraf/Tourism Industry Enters Political Year, Sandiaga Says “Don’t Worry Bro”.

Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno, said that in a political year, the tourism industry is usually blessed. The reason is that there will be many political events being held in hotels and restaurants.

“This may be our chance to convey that politics is actually good for tourism and the creative economy as there will be lots of activities in hotels,” Sandiaga said at the Indonesia Tourism Outlook 2023 event held at Artotel Suites Mangkuluhur, Jakarta, on Wednesday (18/1/2023).

Sandiaga proposed various political activities to be held in cafes by inviting potential legislative candidates. The activities can range from empowerment programs, discussions, training, to mentoring.

“So, politics should be fun and, in my opinion, it has already completely changed,” he said.

Sandiaga also assessed that the era of divisive politics is starting to be abandoned by the younger generation. Instead, they prefer to have fun.

“They want to be happy and enjoy the sights. The sights can be a place to have a discussion, even though they are just drinking ginger tea,” he said.
