The Tourism Ministry recently hosted Online Training Focus Group Discussion (FGD) for tourism stakeholders at the D’Hotel in Jakarta on Sept. 5.

“The more digital, the more personal. The more digital, the more global. The more digital, the more professional,” read the ministry’s slogan for going digital.

"To reach the target of 20 million foreign tourists in 2019, the ministry has to go digital,” said the ministry's deputy for institutional development Ahman Sya.

One of the ministry's efforts to go digital is digital learning or online training that is aimed for all members of the ministry from the main office to regional tourism agencies.

This program is supported by Telkom and developed by Inventure’s Yuswohady.

Using the e-learning program, participants don't have to come and sit in a class. It can also shorten the study time and save more cost.

“This digital platform is expected to speed up and ease the study of tourism,” added Ahman. (kes)
