How Singaporeans Increase Tourism and Learn Cultures from Indonesia


YOGYAKARTA, cure KOMPAS.com - Singapore is seeking cooperation with Yogyakarta city in Central Java , especially in the fields of culture and tourism.

"I see that Yogyakarta is a region that is rich in culture and extraordinary tourism potentials," Singapore’s foreign and domestic affairs minister Masagus Zulkifli said here on Saturday.

He said when meeting with the deputy governor of the special region, Sri Paku Alam IX, that Singapore also wishes to open Singapore Airline flights to Yogyakarta.

"This is to ease visits by the Singaporean people for tourism or to learn the culture, tourism and language," he said.
