Jogjakarta, Sabah Urged To Jointly Promote Eco-Tourism Products
JOGYAKARTA, Aug 5 (Bernama) — Jogyakarta and Sabah can combine their almost similar eco-tourism products and promote them as one tourism package.

Head of Tourism Department of Yogyakarta, Tazbir Abdullah, said Jogyakarta has volcanoes and Sabah has ‘sleeping’ Mount Kinabalu.

“We can package them for tourists keen to visit mountains. Also, we can promote the beaches,” he told journalists from Sabah here Thursday.

He hoped to put forward the proposal at international tourism forums, especially between Indonesia and Malaysia.

Tazbir said although it was difficult to introduce direct flights between Jogyakarta and Kota Kinablu, there were some airliners who were interested.

“We can discuss with them, there are no problems.

“Currently, the problem is with Adisucipto international airport. It might not be able to handle the increase in flights as the runway is small,” he said.

The airport handles direct flights from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

Meanwhile, provincial secretary, Tri Harjun Ismaji, said Jogyakarta’s information technology (IT) sector has the potential to grow considering the huge student population.

He said the province needed help from IT companies to offer wireless Internet access which was increasing.

“Jogyakarta has over 250,000 students in institutions of higher learning. The number is big considering there are only 3.5 million residents,” he said.

Tri Harjun said there were over 400 Malaysian students here, with most of them doing doing medical course.
