New executives at Indonesia tourism ministry

Indonesian tourism ministry swears in the new deputies at a ceremony in Jakarta yesterday

Indonesia’s minister of tourism and creative economy and head of TCE Board Wishnutama Kusubandio announced the organizational structure changes and inaugurated the deputies and directors in Jakarta last night.

Under the new structure, the MoTCE consists of the minister, vice-minister, secretary, and expert staff, while the TCE Board comprises the head, vice head, primary secretary and seven deputies.

One of the many newly created positions also includes the expert staff on crisis management.

On the appointment of expert staff on crisis management, Wishnutama said: “Safety and security are very important in a destination. Look at travel advice from the US, Australia, and some other countries. The status of Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and Malaysia are green, while Indonesia is yellow. With such status, travelers will think twice before visiting Indonesia. Therefore, I have appointed an expert staff who can assist me to improve the safety and security of tourist destinations.”
