JAKARTA, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia has received significant tour package orders from potential Chinese tourists during its tourism promotion activities in three Chinese cities, officials at the Indonesian tourism ministry said here on Tuesday.

Assistant Deputy Minister for Asia Pacific Marketing Development Vinsensius Jemadu said that the recent consumer selling programs held from Dec. 8 to 11 in Chinese cities of Xiamen, Sanya and Fuzhou had attracted more than 1,800 Chinese visitors who booked for tour packages to Indonesia's Jakarta, Bali nike air force 1 07 sale , Manado, Yogyakarta, Thousand Island and Lake Toba.

Deputy Minister for Foreign Market Development I Gde Pitana expected that the recent consumer selling events in China would further enhance arrivals of Chinese tourists to Indonesia.

He added that China now leads the arrivals of foreign tourists in Indonesia, making it an important tourism market to Indonesia.

Indonesia also used the promotion events to explain the current situation in Indonesia's resort island of Bali related to the ensuing volcanic activities in Bali's volcano of Mount Agung.

Pitana said that people's daily lives as well as tourism activities in Bali were not disrupted by the volcanic events, assuring that Bali is safe for tourists.

"For Chinese tourists, no need to be scared. The volcano's location is far from Bali's ultimate tourism spots like Kuta Beach www.airforce1shoesale.com , Seminyak and Ubud," he said in a statement.

Indonesian Tourism Minister Arief Yahya said the government continues to pay more attention to the comfort and safety of tourists in Bali.


TURKU, Finland, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- China and the European Union (EU) vowed on Thursday to continue working together to fight global water crises, as hundreds of high-level decision makers and experts on water management from the two sides met in Turku, southwestern Finland.

China nike air force 1 shoes sale , the European Commission and several EU member states signed a declaration at the annual China Europe Water Platform (CEWP) in Turku to strengthen cooperation to promote sustainable and improve water security.

Resolving water problems has a key role in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that should be achieved by 2030. One of the 17 goals is securing access to clean water and sanitation for all.

It is natural for China and the EU to work together to solve "one of the most crucial problems in the future for mankind," Kimmo Tiilikainen, Finnish Minister for Housing, Energy and the Environment, said.

The minister told Xinhua ensuring adequate drinking water supplies and managing wastewater so that the environment was not polluted are key issues.

A GLOBAL OBJECTIVE

Today, more than 1 billion people have difficulty in accessing safe drinking water. A quarter of the world's population faces a dearth of fresh water nike air force 1 sale , and over 14 percent of the global runoff is contaminated. Also, 90 percent of the natural disaster deaths are caused by floods, draughts and typhoons, Chinese Minister of Water Resources Chen Lei said.

Chen said the cooperation on water management is significant to prevent potential water crises from affecting the economy and society. It is necessary to secure the supply of water and food, and the ecology, as well as mitigate the effects of climate change.

Karmenu Vella air force 1 shoes sale , European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, pointed out that water plays a very important role in the other SDGs as well.

"These are global objectives, and there is no single country that can reach these objectives on its own. That is why we need global solutions and we need global actions toward the SDGs," Vella told Xinhua.

The commissioner said everyone was dedicated to the cause: "We are all committed. China is committed, Europe is committed air force 1 sale , and I think the more we work together, the better chance we have of reaching the same objectives," he said.

Vella underlined that the water issue matters more than one can imagine: "The risk of lack of water and the risk of having bad quality water is a threat to society, a threat to our health, and also a threat to our economy, because two [to] three out of every four jobs are water-dependent."

PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS NEEDED

Besides the Turku declaration Men's Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low Grey Sale , China and the EU Thursday also signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to establish dialogue on water policy.

Vella said the idea is to develop not just a discussion forum but practical steps and find practical projects. "The MOU lists a number of objectives in line with Sustainable Development Goals to which we are all committed, including the EU as well as China."

"I think we can look for practical solutions together," he said, suggesting the pri.
