Jakarta City Council Commission B Member, Syarifuddin asks Jakarta Dept. of Tourism and Culture to provide annual festival calendar. It is because many residents missed the festival date.

“We have many festival agenda, but residents lack of information,” he said, Sunday (9/11).

As the result, residents prefer to go abroad. In fact, local festival will surely boost the local revenue.

“They have prepared to go abroad two or three months before. Our promotion is weak,” he added.

According to him, the agency should promote tourism destination seriously. One of the sites is Seribu Island.

“4,000 up to 5,000 people visit Seribu Island on holiday. It’s good potency,” he closed.
