The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economics (in Indonesian: Kementerian Pariwisata dan Ekonomi Kreatif, formerly Kementerian Kebudayaan dan Pariwisata, usual Indonesian acronym being Kemenparekraf') is the ministry in Indonesia concerned with administration of culture and tourism.

In the 1990s tourism was a directorate, not a ministry. [1]

When it became a ministry its name was the Department of Tourism, Posts and Telecommunications which concerned with administration of postal and telecommunication as well.[2]

The postal and telecommunication governance is now a Directorate General of Post and Telecommunication in the Department of Communication and Informatics.[3]
