The development of infrastructure is very important for a country, and moreover for Indonesia. Infrastructure is very important because it plays a role for Indonesia tourisms. Everybody knows that Indonesia has so many potentials for tourism. There are so many destinations in almost all parts of Indonesia region. But unfortunately, Indonesia still has not developed it well. To go to some beautiful destination such as waterfall for example, people should go through a difficult path, and the way to go there is not really enjoyable. This make tourist and local people feel lazy to go to the destination, whereas, the destination place is so beautiful and interesting.
The reality is Indonesia occupies rate in 74 from 139 countries for tourism’s achievement. Indonesia has to accept the loss from other South East Asian country, whereas, Indonesia has more potential tourist’s destination. This becomes something to think of together and the government finally decides to create a way out for this problem. President Jokowi stated that infrastructure development in Indonesia tourism is one step that he and other participants should do in the first line. By fixing the infrastructure and the highway, he believes that it would increase Indonesia’s competition with another Asian country. If Indonesia can increase the tourism, it will push the economic cost that recently becomes higher and higher.
The government now focuses on the infrastructure development because it is the main key to developing Indonesia tourism. So many locations in Indonesia that become a tourist destination and many of them are still new and need more attention for the infrastructure development. The government then make a decision to give 5,6 quintillion rupiahs to the infrastructure development and tourism promotion. And not only aiming at the infrastructure development, the government also believes that Indonesia tourism can be better in the future if the government cooperates with private’s company. If some private’s company make an investment in the tourism, some sites will quickly be known and famous. And only by then, Indonesia can increase the income from tourism. During this time, Indonesia only focuses on the development of Java and Bali’s tourism site. Now, the government will divide the budget for another site in another island too.
