Tangerang: The Banten provincial administration has prepared a series of events to attract more tourists to the province.

“We have allocated Rp 1.2 billion [US$123,686] from the provincial budget this year to promote tourism and culture through seven events at the local, national and international levels,” Banten Tourism and Culture Agency head Dadie Rustandi said on Thursday.

The seven events include “Gebyar Wisata Nusantara” — an exhibition organized by the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry — from May 23 to 26, the annual Cisadane Festival organized by the Tangerang municipal administration from June 5 to 9, the Anyar-Carita Festival on June 30 and a Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) event from Sept. 7 to 9.

According to the agency, the number of tourist arrivals stood at 62 million last year, a 30 percent increase from the 48 million recorded in 2011.
