Since then, as in 2014 the president of Indonesia became Joko Vidodo, the camp has seen a rapid growth of the tourism industry. In 2014, Indonesia was visited by 9.4 million people. By 2017, this indicator has exceeded the 14 million mark and continues to grow, positively affecting the national economy, as foreigners leave billions of dollars on vacation, and new jobs are created for local residents. The booming tourist sector of Indonesia is primarily a consequence of the competent policy of the administration of Djoko Vidodo. The president initially inherited an economy that was overly dependent on the export of raw materials, especially oil, coal and gas. But due to a decrease in demand and the emergence of alternative fuels, it was decided to develop non-export sectors of the economy, such as tourism. To this end, in 2015, the Ministry of Tourism was restructured and its budget was increased. Among the main events it is necessary to note the simplification of entry for foreigners: in 2014, citizens of 45 countries could visit Indonesia without a visa, and in 2016 their number increased to 169. Also, restrictions on foreign ownership of hotels and restaurants were relaxed or completely removed, and the process of issuing permits for the conduct of business was significantly facilitated. In addition, the state began to actively invest in the development of tourism infrastructure, making many attractions more accessible.
