Beside acts as regional growth center, the region is also works as the main gate for trade route, logistic distribution, and people mobility in East Sulawesi. This region consists of four regencies: Banggai, Banggai Islands, Banggai Sea, and Tojo Una-Una, in a unified vision to improve the quality and sustainability of economic condition, social welfare, and cultural excellence through three main pillars: Fishery, Plantation, and Maritime Tourism.
Banggai Touna can become a coastal zone model region for a blue-green island that is sustainable, resilient, inclusive and competitive. Integrated coastal zone management is key to manage development and conserve natural resource, and while so doing, integrates the concerns of relevant economic sectors and societal interests mainly on an interdependent and self-sustaining partnership between fisheries, agriculture, and coastal tourism. With the commitment to integrated management vision, series of thoughtful and transformative tourism investment will become the lever for a larger multi-sector benefit sharing.
