Kupang (ANTARA News NTT) - The Kupang District Government, East Nusa Tenggara, is targeting building five leading tourist attractions in an effort to increase the number of local and foreign tourists.

"We are aiming to build five leading tourist attractions in Kupang district in five years. This area has a lot of attractive tourism potential," said Acting District head of Kupang Korinus Masneno in Oelamasi, Friday (15/2).

Korinus, who was chosen as the Kupang district head, stressed that in his leadership with the elected Kupang district head, Jerry Manafe, they would give serious attention to the development of the tourism sector because it could contribute greatly to the region`s original income.

The tourism sector, added Korinus, will be able to mobilize the economic growth of the community so as to encourage the local government to make tourism a priority.

"Every year, we will build a leading tourist attraction, so that in five years, five excellent tourism objects will be built in this region," said Korinus.

He hoped that the leaders of regional apparatus organizations (OPD) would learn and understand their vision and leadership mission well in the next five years, so it would practically have an impact on improving the people`s welfare.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the Kupang District DPRD, Yosef Lede, appreciated the Kupang district government`s plan to develop the tourism sector. "This area has a lot of tourism potential but so far it has not been managed well," said Lede.
