Indonesia to develop ten cruise ports


Jakarta: Indonesia’s minister for tourism, Mari Elka Pangestu, has said Indonesia is working to develop ten ports to be capable of receiving cruise ships in order to boost calls to the archipelago.

Bali, Belawan, Flores, Lombok, Pare Pare, Probolinggo, Semarang, South Kalimantan and Tanjung Priok are all in line for cruise infrastructure development, which is being heavily supported by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Close to 120,000 tourists visited Indonesia on cruise ships in 2012, and the government hopes to boost this to 600,000 by 2016/
