According to Fahri, investment in organizing the pilgrimage will benefit the Indonesian congregation.

“We have just talked about cash at BPKH which is intended for Hajj Organisation, and Hajj investment. More should be invested in the Holy Land and guaranteed greater returns,” said Fahri.

Currently, Fahri said Saudi Arabia has made Hajj and other tourism a priority source of state revenue.

Meanwhile, investment in the haj sector, according to Fahri, will continue to experience growth.

“Saudi Arabia is currently looking at Hajj and tourism in general as their source of income after oil,” said Fahri.

“Our involvement there will certainly provide greater value because our money can be managed in a world where investment continues to increase. The number of pilgrims never decreases every year,” Fahri added.
