Labuan Bajo, E Nusa Tenggara (ANTARA) – Communications and Information Minister Johnny G Plate called on all Pentahelix parties to work together to develop holistic tourism in Manggarai Raya, East Nusa Tenggara.
“The main pastoral idea of holistic tourism should be upheld by all the stakeholders that broadly affect people’s lives,” he said Saturday night at Goro Koe Labuan, East Nusa Tenggara.・As stated at the Bajo Festival.
“Multi-party cooperation within Indonesia’s Pentahelix involves governments, religious figures, celebrities, entrepreneurs and people in medicine,” he continued.
According to the plate, tourism can have positive impacts such as improved economic prosperity, increased social interaction and cultural enrichment.
He believed that tourism would serve as the backbone for the development of prosperity for the people, promoting fraternity and global solidarity within nations and tribes.
To this end, he emphasized that the concept of holistic tourism initiated by Ruteng Diocese: participation, culture and sustainability should be fully supported by all parties.
Multi-stakeholder collaboration is important to ensure that overall tourism development is regularly discussed in Ruteng Diocese.
On this occasion, the plate also informed that the government has established Labuan Bajo as one of Indonesia’s top priority tourist destinations. Labuan Bajo has also become a National Tourism Strategic Special Zone.

“Local talent should be prepared and enabled to participate in tourism,” he said.
