Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno said his ministry would create 1.1 million jobs this year. These jobs come from the tourism and creative economy sectors.
“Alhamdulillah, this year, tourism and the creative economy will create 1.1 million jobs in 2022,” said Sandiaga at the creative city workshop in Cilegon, Sunday (17/7/2022).
His party targets that in 2024 there will be a revival of tourism and the creative economy by creating 4.4 million new jobs.
“And 2024 is a revival of 4.4 million new jobs in 2024,” he said.
Currently, said Sandi, Indonesia’s economic condition is dominated by the extractive economy. He said that this condition must slowly be accompanied by the rise of the creative economy so that it does not rely on the extractive economy.
“How can the creative economy replace the extractive economy, so it must be our creativity and imagination that drives our resources,” he said.

For example, continued Sandi, Cilegon is an industrial city, hundreds of capital-intensive industries exist in Cilegon. This condition must be accompanied by the creativity of Cilegon residents to market Cilegon local products.
“If the craft is what sells, observe the imitation of modifications, what is typical of Cilegon, it is an industrial city. But we have to be really smart, increase our income, use our technology in our production so that this price increase is not too burdensome and happens inflation,” he said.
