Bima (ANTARA) – Tourism and Creative Industries Minister Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno has pledged to develop the tradition of horse racing in the Bima District of West Nusa Tenggara Province into one of Indonesia’s tourist attractions in an effort to attract more tourists to the event.

“So let’s first take a look at the revitalization of plants. I have received several requests that this event can be raised to a national level, ”said Uno during his visit to the horse racing arena here on Sunday.

He said that horse racing, which has existed as a hereditary tradition since the Japanese colonial era, is seen as Bima’s potential and it is time to develop the event that locals often call “Pacoa Jara” to bring the community-based economy to life to crank.

To that end, Uno said it would put in place a plan to improve human resources, especially for jockeys from school-age children.

“We will make sure that this activity complies with child protection. We will do this by applying innovative approaches and adapting them to the current situation, ”he emphasized.

Minister Uno visited the horse racing arena together with the famous Youtuber and businessman Atta Halilintar and his wife Aurel Hermansyah as well as the actor and stand-up comedian Rigen Rakelna, who is originally from Bima.

The county government has often used the horse racing arena in Panda Village, Palibelo subdistrict, Bima district to organize a horse race.

Local communities hold the horse race twice a week. It was also added to Bima’s list of annual events to celebrate the district’s Jubilee in June, Indonesia’s Independence Day in August, and West Nusa Tenggara Province’s Jubilee at the end of the year.
