Ministry unveils tourism and creative economy side events at G20 2022

The impact of the G20 will be felt more by those involved in the tourism and creative economy sector if we increase the number of side events.

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy will unveil side events on tourism and creative economy during the 2022 Indonesian G20 to support the activities of the G20 Presidency in the country.

These side events are expected to have a broad impact on the population, as their execution involved industry players.

“The ministry is ready and actively contributing through a variety of events that support the G20,” Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno noted during a weekly press briefing here Monday through an official statement.

“The impact of the G20 will be felt more by those involved in the tourism and creative economy sector if we increase the number of side events,” he added.

The unveiling of the side events is scheduled to take place at the Indonesia Kempinski Hotel, here, on Wednesday, April 20, with two categories: substantive side events and non-substantive side events.

Substantive side events include programs related to Tourism Working Group issues.

Meanwhile, the non-substantial category aims to promote Indonesia’s tourist destinations. In this case, the ministry offers an excursion and a before/after visit for the delegations of the Indonesian Presidency of the G20.

The ministry’s side events are organized to increase the number of delegations attending and participating in the main event and side events of Indonesia’s G20 Presidency, the minister explained.
