The highlight of the Aceh Tourism Business Matching and Famtrip activities held at the Hermes Palace Hotel in Banda Aceh was opened directly by the Deputy Chairperson of the Aceh Tourism Business Matching Section and Famtrip, Acting. The Head of the Aceh Tourism and Culture Office, Amiruddin Tjoet Hasan, represented the Head of the Aceh DPMPTSP as Section Chair, where in his remarks the Aceh Government was very enthusiastic to bring Aceh into a superior cultural destination. Aceh itself is well known, visited, and feels unique by travelers from various backgrounds of world culture. As is known, Aceh has won various awards for National Halal Tourism competition in 2016, namely as the Best Muslim Tourist Friendly Culture destination, Sultan Iskandar Muda Airport as the Best Muslim Tourist Friendly Airport, and Baiturrahman Great Mosque Banda Aceh as the Best Tourist Attraction. In addition, Aceh also received an award at the Halal Tourism Award in 2016, namely Aceh as the World ‘s Halal Cultural Destination and the Best Airport for Halal Travelers.
For this reason, the Government of Aceh continues to develop tourism in a serious and planned manner as set out in the National Tourism Development Master Plan (RIPPN) and detailed in the Regional Tourism Development Master Plan (RIPDA). In line with this, several regions have been prepared to become tourist destinations in Aceh, namely the City of Banda Aceh, the City of Sabang, the District of Aceh Besar, Singkil Regency, the Gayo Plateau, Simeulue District, and other Regencies that have tourism potential. The Government of Aceh offers investment in the development of Wista support facilities, such as hotels, resorts, restaurants and others, especially in the Sabang Free Port and Free Trade Area whose land is clear and clean, with fast licensing and incentives that benefit the business world. Tourism development is inseparable from the role of tourism sector businessmen such as travel agents, tour planners, event organizers, MICE service providers, as well as other business people so that the existence of Tourism Business Matching and Famtrip events is a very selective event for all parties, sellers and buyers to find potential business partners. The Aceh government expects this event and Famtrip activities to expand the business network of tourism sector businesses with market share, business partners, and new destinations so that Aceh’s culture remains sustainable, but can also provide multiplyer effects for the economic movement of the Acehnese people.

Nova Iriansyah said, the topics discussed at the meeting were very relevant to the Aceh government program that implemented the concept of environmentally sustainable development (Aceh Green).
“We also certainly really hope, the concept of development
Aceh Green based can be continued with the development of green cities (Green City) in a number of regions, so that the Aceh Green vision carried out at the provincial level is strengthened by the presence of cities greendi in urban areas, “said Nova Iriansyah.
Aceh Green is one of Aceh’s development visions. Therefore, Nova said, he realized how important it was to preserve nature to be balanced with the pace of development that was going on.
“The Aceh Green Vision is basically not only aimed at maintaining Aceh’s natural balance, but also to support the spirit in addressing climate change which is an international issue at this time,” said Nova.
The issue of climate change is important to be discussed as part of the early anticipation of environmental damage. Therefore, the IMT-GT meeting is important to discuss the concept of development with a green vision to overcome the extreme events of climate change.
In the Governour’s Climate and Forest meeting which took place in Bali, Denmark, America and Paris, in 2009 to 2015, a number of developed countries proposed that developing countries that still have extensive forest cover to implement the spirit of green vision in its development concept.
Indonesia is one that is expected to support this spirit, because Indonesia still has a fairly large forest area. In Indonesia, one of the forests that has a large deposit is Aceh. Where there are 3.5 million hectares of forest that is still green, consisting of about 2 hectares of protected forest and around 638 thousand hectares of production forest.
To support this spirit, the governor of Aceh then issued Instruction No. 5 of 2007 concerning a logging moratorium in all Aceh forest areas. The aim is to maintain a life support system, strengthen community social capital and support sustainable development.
The rest is to maintain the beauty of the forest and restore the function of degraded forests through restoration and reforestation of critical lands. The spirit of the moratorium is the basis for the Aceh Government to carry out the vision of Aceh Green.
“Aceh Green is the foundation for the Aceh government in carrying out environmentally and sustainable development that is sensitive to disasters,” said Nova. [Humas-Aceh]
