Indonesia is an archipelagic country blessed with many unique, beautiful natural wealth spanning of phenomenal panoramas, god-given coral reefs, and so many exotic flora and fauna, all roaming from Sabang to Merauke. No wonder if there's tens of millions of both international tourists flock to this country every year. Currently, Indonesia's tourism sector accounts for approximately four percents of the total economy.

In addition, when the disaster occurs, NASR is greatly committed to providing the end-to-end and tirelessly search and rescue service, no matter what and where it strikes.

To further ensure the tourism destination safety from the disaster threats, NASR joins forces with Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia on the search and rescue operations for all of the travel agencies.

This cooperation is fundamentally designed to ensure the tourists enjoy and absorb the Indonesia's natural beauty without having to worry about disasters from striking. We wholeheartedly wish the travelers feel comfortable, happy, and, importantly, secure spending their vacation in Indonesia.

Chief of NASR, Marshal Muhammad Syaugi, S.Sos, MM, hopes that NASR could contribute significantly to the country's tourism sector given it is a major pillar of economic growth. "To achieve that goal, we set a number of principles in conveying a good operations; to act professionally; integrated mechanism of operations; and a wide-ranging SAR-related arsenal as well as a solid teamwork," Syaugi says.
