I will take the Homestay Owners and Destination Management toolboxes and re-run them in Mentawai Islands with local stakeholders. We as governments are not capable and do not have time to develop such products and we really appreciate that we are given access to them.
It is really rare that government officials have the chance to sit together with the private sector, from the airline industry, travel agencies, academicians, and other government offices. This Destination Management module enabled us to sit together and have a structured discussion about tourism development. The use of the toolbox(es) will be disseminated to all districts of West Sumatra next year.
The ILO’s tourism tools are effective as they are participatory and interactive. Designed to be held in small groups, everybody feels comfortable in contributing their ideas and it becomes great source of information for the others.
