Indonesia and Germany are poised to enhance their cooperation in the tourism, creative economy, and green economy sectors following a recent high-level meeting between government representatives of both countries.

Angela Tanoesoedibjo, Deputy Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, engaged with representatives from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection of Germany in a meeting in Berlin on March 6, 2024.

During the meeting, Angela discussed several agendas, including tourism promotion and publicity, tourism investment, and human resources development in the tourism sector.

“Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy oversees six tourism polytechnics, with a German language curriculum already in place at the Bali Tourism Polytechnic,” Angela said on March 9, 2024.

She expressed the Indonesian government’s desire to establish partnerships for student and teacher exchanges with educational institutions in Germany.

“This will enable us to introduce the German language curriculum to five other tourism polytechnics under the coordination of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy,” she said.

In addition to strengthening human resources, the meeting also addressed bolstering cooperation in the creative economy sector.

Previously, the Creative Economy Agency had collaborated with the German Accelerator Southeast Asia managed by Start2 Group in 2018.

“This collaboration is expected to further strengthen efforts to advance the creative economy sectors of Indonesia and Germany,” Angela remarked.

Furthermore, Angela highlighted the potential for green economic cooperation between Indonesia and Germany, which was also discussed during the meeting.

“I believe this matter should be thoroughly discussed as it presents an opportunity for Indonesia and Germany to collaborate in developing green economic potential as a means to mitigate climate change,” Angela concluded.
