G20: PT TWC ready to welcome delegates to temple grounds

Sleman, Yogyakarta (ANTARA) – PT TWC, which manages the temples of Borobudur, Prambanan and Ratu Boko, has ensured the preparation of its tourist destinations to welcome the 2022 G20 delegates.

“Several facilities and infrastructure have been prepared to support the international (G20) forum comprised of 19 countries and the European Union (EU),” PT TWC Chairman and CEO Edy Setijono noted in Yogyakarta on Wednesday.

According to Setijono, PT TWC, as a cultural heritage destination management company, supports the implementation of the G20 as it will help advance the tourism industry. He said support to the G20 has involved preparation of destination areas as well as operational services in line with international standards.

“(Preparations have covered) All venues of G20 activities including Prambanan Temple Tourism Park and restaurants and theaters like Rama Shinta, Ramayana and Dagi Abhinaya at Borobudur TWC complex. While the beautiful Indonesia Mini Park (TMII) is still in the revitalization process to host the G20 delegation during the third quarter of 2022,” he pointed out.

He also said that the work program of the Indonesian G20 Presidency will motivate the tourism sector and its supporting services.

According to Setijono, the G20 theme “Recover Together, Recover Stronger” aims to activate high-quality tourism by stimulating recovery towards the post-pandemic era.

Three G20 side events will take place in the Candi Tourist Park area in March 2022: the G20 Education Working Group (EdWG), the G20 MEPs Meeting on the Environment and the Sustainability (EDM-CSWG) and the G20 Energy Transition Working Group (ETWG).

Setijono said PT TWC will invite G20 delegates to explore and experience top destinations with activities that will include dining with a panoramic view of Prambanan Temple, enjoying sunrise and breakfast at Bukit Dagi, and witness the panorama of the Borobudur temple, or watch the legendary dance performances of Sendratari Ramayana and Dramatari Roro Jonggrang.
