The Visit Indonesia Tourism Officer (VITO) in France was specially invited by the University of Angers to give a presentation on the Wonderful Indonesia tourism brand at the Tourism International Festival from June 15 to 17.
“We feel honored; usually we have to pay to conduct a presentation at an international tourism marketing event, but this time we were actually invited to the event. The French people are interested in getting to know Indonesia,” said the Tourism Ministry’s deputy for overseas promotion, I Gde Pitana.
Held for the first time by the university, Indonesia was invited as a guest country to participate in the festival.
Some of the activities during the festival included a discussion forum with Indonesian university lecturers, traditional dance and gamelan performances as well as an art market.
