PONTIANAK, KOMPAS.com - Indonesia is in need of around 35,000 tourist guides in light of the country’s target of attracting 7 million foreign tourists in 2010. "The Indonesian Tourist Guides Association (HPI) at present has 12,000 members, and for just 2 million tourists, we need around 10,000 guides," I Nyoman Kandia, chairman of the HPI’s central executive board, said here on Friday.

Of the existing 12,000 tourist guides, he said, only about 30 percent were categorized as professional ones. According to Nyoman Kandia, tourist guides played an important role in supporting the tourism industry in the country.
