G20 Tourism Side Events Aimed to Open Thousands of Jobs

The Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno on Wednesday evening launched G20 side event programs on tourism and creative economy which he hopes would open up to 15,000 new job opportunities during Indonesia’s G20 Presidency.

These events are the ‘Wellness Tourism Conference and Festival,’ which comprises of conferences and exhibitions about Indonesia’s potential towards herbal uses for healthcare, yoga, and healthy diets that is set to be hosted at Solo in August. Another event is dubbed the Indonesian Creation Appreciation or AKI roadshow across 16 regions in the country which highlights the development of MSMEs through bootcamps. The third event is dubbed the third World Conference on Creative Economy to be held in Bali in early October.
