An amount of 9.2 trillion rupiah (US$645 million) from the state budget of 2022 will be earmarked for tourism recovery by the Indonesian government. The money will be spent on the development of accessibility infrastructure, tourist amenities, destination promotions, and private sector support.

The budget will be divided into central government spending of 6.5 trillion rupiah, and regional spending of 2.8 trillion rupiah, said Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Indonesia’s minister of finance.

Five super-priority destinations – Lake Toba, Borobudur, Mandalika, Labuan Bajo, and Likupang, will be funded. The promotion focus in 2022 would be towards source markets and quality tourists, sustainable, nature-based tourism, along with culture conservation, said Sandiaga Uno, minister of tourism and creative economy.

In 2021, 7.67 trillion rupiah was allotted for national tourism strategic areas, ecotourism, and human resources training in the tourism sector.
