JAKARTADAILY.ID –The Ministry of Tourism asked local governments to conduct a mapping or training need analysis of human resources (HR) in their respective regions before implementing competency development and enhancement programs for tourism resources and the creative economy.
Deputy for Resources and Institutions, Diah Martini said this mapping was needed to place HR development programs that are in accordance with HR capabilities in each region.
"So before we provide training, we need help with mapping from the regions. So that the program is not only nice to have, but needs to have. It could be that an area does not need training at an advanced level but basic needs. With mapping from the area, we can provide training that is more targeted and beneficial," said Diah Martini, Friday, December 16, 2022.

Because Our task is to make a draft and then after it is inaugurated by the Ministry of Manpower, we will be able to use this standard together," said Diah.
The third is the creation of added value through the Parekraf Academy_ program, Parekraf Training Camp, institutional strengthening, and Ministry of Tourism management.
