Luhut Pandjaitan irked by untapped tourism potential, compares with Thailand

Tempo - November 27, 2020

Francisca Christy Rosana, Jakarta – Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan on Friday mentioned Indonesia's natural tourism and adventures, citing a World Economic Forum study, which claims Thailand is more superior compared to Indonesia.

Based on the study, Thailand tops the category in the Southeast Asia region.

Luhut Pandjaitan argues Indonesia's nature is comparable and arguably exceeds competitors. "Based on the natural adventures, it is impossible that Thailand is more astonishing than us," said the minister on November 27.

"Take a look at Labuan Bajo, Mandalika, Toba, and many more, but [they] lack attractiveness."

Based on the potential Indonesia has, Luhut Pandjaitan believes the country can be superior over other Southeast Asian countries.
