Jakarta. The Tourism Ministry's "Wonderful Indonesia" promotional video earned an extended screen time at the Smart Airports conference in Munich, Germany, on Oct. 9-12.
The conference is an exhibition of airport facilities, technology, designs and innovative services.
"The video has already won several international awards. We also had a chance to give a presentation on our priority tourist destinations," state-owned airport operator Angkasa Pura II president director Muhammad Awaluddin said in a statement.
The video won two awards in the People’s Choice and Best of East Asia and Pacific categories at the 2017 United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Video Competition.
