Indonesia keen to collaborate with other nations, including India on World Heritage Projects

Ferdy Piay, the Charge d’ Affaires of Indonesia to India, has shown a keen interest in collaborating with other nations to market heritage tourism. He also expressed that nations must return together and unite to share knowledge, experiences, and practices to market cultural heritage.

India, of course, has collaborated with Indonesia on such projects before and stays at the top of the list for such collaborations within the future also. Previously, Indonesia and therefore the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) jointly promoted Indonesian temples, along with side Taj Mahal.

Mr. Piay also expressed that the country is keen to hitch hands with India on such spheres. He also mentioned how Bali and other attractions like the Borobudur Temple and Prambanan temple complex have benefitted from such initiatives by the Indonesian governments.

Speaking on an equivalent, he also expressed that, "But in fact, the trouble doesn't stop there. the advantages of developing heritage sites, structures, and buildings in areas are acknowledged not just by the central government, but also by regional governments.

However, promoting cultural heritage as an object of tourism should in fact at an equivalent time be compensated by a legal framework aimed toward protecting the sites. Cultural heritage shouldn't be abused in such how that it'll damage itself. Equally important, as tourism becomes robust leverage to the economy, its development should therefore be sustainable.”

He also cited Bali's famous Kecak dance, which has become an enormous lure for tourists now; on the opposite hand, Mr. Piay expressed that countries may have their different models for heritage tourism but the main target stays an equivalent for promoting also as conserving such rich heritage.
