Abstract

This study aims to explore the contribution of budgeting in increasing tourist visits. The case study method was used to analyze the results of direct observations and in-depth interviews with informants, The results showed that the budget performance was not optimal in supporting the increase in tourist visits. Some of the obstacles faced include budget allocations that are not in accordance with the real needs of the tourism sector, inefficient use of the budget, and lack of evaluation of programs that have been implemented. In addition, strong cooperation with related parties and community participation in planning and implementing tourism programs are also considered important. This research contributes to policy makers in formulating more effective strategies and policies to increase tourist arrivals in Central Sulawesi Province. In addition, this study is also a reference for researchers and academics in developing further research on budget performance and tourism management in other regions.
