Three decades ago, the Balinese economy was largely agriculture-based in terms of both output and employment. Tourism is now the largest single industry; and as a result, Bali is one of Indonesia’s wealthiest regions. About 80% of Bali's economy depends on tourism.The economy, however, suffered significantly as a result of the terrorist bombings of 2002 and 2005. The industry is slowly recovering once again.
Although tourism produces the economy’s largest output, agriculture is still the island’s biggest employer , most notably rice cultivation. Crops grown in smaller amounts include fruit, vegetables, Coffee arabica and other cash and subsistence crops. Fishing also provides a significant number of jobs. Bali is also famous for its artisans who produce a vast array of handicrafts, including batik and ikat cloth and clothing, wooden carvings, stone carvings, painted art and silverware. Notably, individual villages typically adopt a single product, such as wind chimes or wooden furniture.

The Kraton (Sultan’s Palace) itself was designed and built in stages between 1756 and 1790 by Yogyakarta’s funder, Sultan Hamengku Buwono X, a respected and popular leader of the Special Religion who has also earned admiration from many across the nation.
While Jogya is an artistic, cultural, historical, and spiritual city, it is also a dynamic city that is growing in terms of business and economic development.

Surabaya, provincial capital of East Java and Indonesia's second largest city, served for over half a millennium as trading port for the inland empires of Java. Situated at the mouth of the Brantas River, the city was officially founded in 1293 when Raden Widjaja established Majapahit, Indonesia's most glorious empire on the site of legendary battle between a shark (sura) and crocodile (baya). Surabaya, known as the "City of Heroes" because of its role in the nation's independence struggle, has grown into an elegant city of large, colonnaded buildings bordering broad, tree shaded avenues.
It serves as the commercial centre of a thriving industrial and agricultural hinterland. The city's historical site include Kali Mas harbour with its tall-masted trading schooners and nearby, the narrow alleyways and shop of the Arab quarter, redolent of the Middle East. The historic Hotel Majapahit, where Indonesia's war of Independence was begun, and the elegant Grahadi State Buildings, an 18th century mansion, have been restored as monuments to an era of colonial grace. Surabaya is also home to one of southeast Asia's oldest and largest zoos. For travellers in East Java, Surabaya serves as a convenient base for exploring the region's many charms, including Mt. Bromo, the cool mountain retreats of Tretes and Malang and the natural wonders of serveral nature reserves.
Whether you visit Surabaya for business or pleasure, this map is designed to help you make the most of your visit.

I Gede Pitana, the International Promotions Director of Cultural and Tourism Ministry, once stated that besides the increase in tourism arrivals, another of the important effect of VIY is as stimulant for all areas in Indonesia. We may recall Visit Musi Year 2008.
MICE is primary part of the tourism industry. MICE as a major business brings a multidimensional effect that opens work fields, suppresses poverty, and becomes a local income source that supports the national economy. Its management needs the goverment's and private sectors integrative effort. This was proven not only dedication of the local goverments to improve various MICE and tourism facilities, ease of immigration service, and reliable transport, but alsoby the roles of the businesses that manage MICE and tourism areas and the marketing of unique local products.
