|MINISTER: IN-FLIGHT MAGAZINES AS A MEANS OF PROMOTION
During the meetings in the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2006 in Davao City, Philippines, Minister of Culture and Tourism of RI, H.E. Jero Wacik, pitched an idea to his fellow tourism ministers on how the joint promotion would be brought to fruition. His idea was to utilize in-flight magazines in each national flight carrier to provide at least 10 pages of promotional advertisement. On the pages, each ASEAN countries and several neighboring countries like India, People�s Republic of China, Japan, and Korea, can contribute to fill them up with images of tourist destinations.
Minister Wacik also highly hoped that there would be an ASEAN-India center as a result of joint promotion between ASEAN and India. It also works similarly with other neighboring countries like Japan, Republic of Korea, and People�s Republic of China.
On other occasion, Minister Wacik did a leisure activity in a golf course where he played with tourism ministers from Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunai Darussalaam. They conjured that the ATF has been an important forum for the last 25 years. ATF is a forum where members develop collaboration and solidarity, increase tourist visits in the region, and enhance bilateral relationships. The next ATF would be staged in Singapore and Thailand, consecutively.
