Agency overview

The Jakarta Tourism and Culture Office (JTCO) (Indonesian: Dinas Pariwisata dan Kebudayaan DKI Jakarta is one of the Department of Government of Jakarta. The Jakarta Tourism and Culture Office is responsible for culture and tourism affairs in Jakarta.


Before JTCO was established, the government formed Jakarta Tourism Supervisor Organization (Bapparda Jaya) on February 7, 1967 as the realization of Presidium Decision Ampera Cabinet no. 103/4TAP/2/66.

It was Bapparda Jaya that originated the existence of JTCO. Although administratively JTCO was established on September 20, 1970, however, February 7 has been settled as the commemoration day of Disparbud.

Jakarta as a non-oil sector has vastly developed its tourism potential among the world. It has successfully become the mainstay of foreign exchange and yet influences other cities in Indonesia to improve their tourism potentials. The government originally formed an organization unit that specially handled tourism in Jakarta. Based on Local Regulation (Perda) no. 3/2001, Jakarta Tourism Office was established, whereas Organization Structure and Working Procedure were based on Jakarta Governor Policy no. 107/2001.

With several changes on the bureaucracy on both central and regional levels, the organization structure of the Jakarta government also changed. According to Local Regulation (Perda) no. 10/2008 on Regional Organization, Tourism Office affiliated with Culture and Museum Office becoming Tourism and Cultural Office. In the other hand, Organization Structure and Working Procedure were regulated by Governor Policy no. 107/2009.[1]
