"In the near future West Java Tourism and Culture Office will coordinate with the city/ regency in a meeting that will be implemented in the near future so that, there can be synergic between the city and the provincial government," he told reporters in Bandung on Friday (6/10/2017)
According to Ida, if you see the government of Special Region of Yogyakarta, which only shaded 4 districts and 1 city, can get 18 WBTB for the year 2017. There, for the submission of WBTB from the city/ regency has been budgeted so that in its implementation can get away with it all.
In 2017, the provincial government of West Java filed 6 WBTB. However, one art of Toleat did not escape because it is not 55 years old. Nevertheless, this Toleat art will be re-proposed again, because based on search and study, Toleat art is already 55 years old.
