Kupang, E Nusa Tenggara (AntaraNews NTT) - The East Nusa Tenggara provincial government is targeting to create as many as 600 thousand jobs in the tourism sector, according to local Tourism Office Chief Marius Ardu Jelamu.

"Governor Viktor Bungtilu Laiskodat has said that 600 thousand jobs must be created from the world of tourism for the next five years," Jelamu remarked here on Tuesday (30/10).

He said the East Nusa Tenggara governor has set tourism as the leading sector to encourage economic improvement in the province. This means other sectors will also be developed to support the tourism sector.

Jelamu pointed out that the relevant technical agencies from the industrial department will intervene in the culinary business developed by the community around the location of the tourism attractions.

The agricultural sector will also provide support by preparing the results of horticultural crops for tourists, in addition to being able to convert plantations into tourist destinations.

Similarly, the forestry sector, which has the authority to manage production forests and protected forests as tourism destinations, will provide opportunities for the community to develop it.

"Hence, the tourism sector will act as the core and be supported by other sectors as its plasma," the East Nusa Tenggara Tourism Office chief stated.

Furthermore, Marius stated that when all sectors can be integrated properly, they will support the tourism industry that can offer ample employment opportunities to the local community.

"If we say industry, all must be integrated from upstream to downstream and become an economic chain that can have an impact on various stakeholders," Jelamu remarked.
