Marcel Barmettler, Asia World Indonesia General Manager

Dear Friends and Business Partners,

The terrorist attack in Central Jakarta on 14 January 2016 showed how fragile and exposed we are. The Indonesian authorities, however, acted swiftly and efficiently to end the violence and restored order to the city on the same day.

Asia World Indonesia cancelled all Jakarta City Tours on the day of the attack for the safety of our clients and staff.

The following day, after the city returned to normal with tight security in place, we resumed ournormal operations in the Jakarta area.

Asia World Indonesiaalways puts our clients’ safety at the heart of its operations. Last December the company held a training course for its tour guides on how to handle emergency situations. We have an Emergency Response Manual for our guides to handle emergencies, and they are trained to react accordingly.

I wish to assure our partners and clients that it is safe to travel to Indonesia.

Happy holidays in Indonesia!

Marcel Barmettler

General Manager
