Almost 50 times as many foreign tourists visited Indonesia in April compared to the same month last year, according to Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data, showing that the country’s tourism has begun to bounce back. But observers stress the need to remain vigilant about the recovery process. Hendrie Adjie Kusworo, who heads Gadjah Mada University’s (UGM) doctoral program in tourism studies, warned stakeholders and domestic tourists to remain vigilant and to support the national tourism recovery. “The recovery of tourism depends on the governments’ response to COVID-19 across the globe, and most importantly, on our continued efforts to keep the spread of the virus under control,” he told The Jakarta Post on Friday, adding that Indonesia’s response to the pandemic was relatively effective at the moment.
