Eid al-Adha contributes more than IDR 200 trillion to the economy: Minister Uno

Jakarta (ANTARA) – This year’s Eid al-Adha celebrations contributed more than IDR 200 trillion (US$12.2 billion) to the national economy, according to Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno.

He said this figure came from the preparation, slaughter and cooking process of sacrificial animals.

“A total of 1.5 million sacrificial animals provided and processed contributed more than IDR 200 trillion,” he said after attending the distribution of 420 packages of sacrificial meat in Jakarta, Wednesday.

Uno noted that this figure came from sacrificial animals donated by five percent of Indonesia’s total Muslim population. He added that the Eid al-Adha celebration could make a greater economic contribution if 200 million Indonesian Muslims donated for the Qurbani service.

“If we can encourage more Muslims, who make up about 200 million of our population, we will see a more significant economic impact. “We need to take collaborative action to achieve this goal,” he said.

In the context of Eid al-Adha, Uno and the Ministry of Tourism donated three cows and two goats for Qurban. The meat from the sacrificial animals was then distributed to 420 people consisting of cleaners, technicians, security officers and drivers within the ministry.

Previously, the Minister of Finance noted that his party is targeting the tourism sector to contribute at least IDR 202 trillion (US$12.3 billion) to the national gross domestic product (GDP) by 2024.

For this reason, he said, the Ministry is targeting to attract as many as 14.3 million foreign tourists to visit Indonesia this year.

In 2023, the total foreign exchange value generated from tourism activities will reach around IDR 161 trillion (US$9.8 billion). In that year, Indonesia is targeting 8.5 million foreign tourist visits and 1.4 billion domestic tourist visits.
