Indonesia is among the 10 safest countries in the world according to Gallup’s Law and Order Report released in 2018. From that data, Indonesia got a score of 89 and was ranked 9th as the country with the highest level of law and order.
The data at the same time juxtaposes Indonesian security at a level above Denmark and a level below Canada. The top position is held by Singapore with a score of 97, followed by Norway, Iceland and Finland, each of which scores 93.
“This is certainly good news also for Indonesian Tourism. With a high level of security, it will make prospective foreign tourists no doubt come to Indonesia,” said Minister of Tourism (Menpar) Arief Yahya, in an official statement on Sunday (1/13/2019) .
Menpar added, in the Asian region, Indonesia only lost to Singapore. “When compared, the area of Indonesia is much larger and the population is far more than Singapore, this is certainly a pride,” continued the Menpar.
Indonesian security is not only recognized by Gallup’s Law and Order Report. In a report on one of the travel sites in the UK, Ampersand Travel, there is a riles index of the level of solo tourism security for women.
In this data, Indonesia is the 5th safest country out of 70 world countries with the top ranking filled by Japan, France, Spain, the United States, and Indonesia.
Indonesian security in the eyes of the international community can be seen from international events held in Indonesia. For the past 4 years, there has never been a significant disturbance that threatens security.
“We can see examples of this during the Asian Games event, and the recent IMF-World Bank Annual Meeting. Tens of thousands of guests came from all corners of the world. And the program was safe and secure,” said Menpar Arief Yahya. (rls / bas)
