Galveston Jakarta Reviews: Tourism Ministry to Build 100,000 Homestays in Tourist Villages

 

Jakarta. The Tourism Ministry will host a coordination meeting at Bidakara Hotel, Jakarta, on May 18-19 to sign agreements to develop a total of up to 100,000 homestays in tourist villages all over the country in the next few years.

 

This year alone, the ministry expects to build 20,000 new homestays.

 

Representatives from several ministries, developers, local administrations, non-governmental organizations and academic experts will attend the two-day meeting.

 

The key outcome for the meeting is to have the Ministry of Tourism and Ministry for Villages, Underdeveloped Regions and Transmigration — the key players in the development projects — to agree to kickstart the collaboration and set out the guidelines for it.

 

"The Tourism Minister and the Minister of Villages, Underdeveloped Regions and Transmigration will sign an agreement and set up guidelines for homestay development in tourist villages. We will also hold discussions with other stakeholders on the ideal locations for the homestays," Dadang Rizky Rahman, the deputy head of destination development and tourism industry at the Ministry of Tourism, said in a statement on Wednesday (17/05).

 

Both ministries have already agreed on 10 pilot locations to begin the long-term development. They will ratify the agreement at the meeting.
