JAKARTA Aug 1 Foreign tourist arrivals in
Indonesia, Southeast Asia's biggest economy, increased 13.5
percent in June from a year earlier, the statistics bureau said
There were 789.600 foreign tourists visiting the
archipelago, driven by recent events such as pre-season tours by
English football teams.
Indonesia attracts fewer tourists than its neighbours do,
and some economists think boosting its service industries could
be an engine of growth.
