“The tourism sector is a business that promotes trust so that tourist will come to visit only when they have the trust, visiting Bali safely and comfortably,” said the Minister Wishnutama Kusubandio in a press release on Thursday, June 18, 2020
The minister met with Bali Governor I Wayan Koster at Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant, Ubud, Bali on Wednesday, June 17, 2020.
He also appreciated the Provincial Government of Bali which is ready to implement health protocols in its region. He also stressed that health protocols must be prepared in advance to be able to build the public trust to travel back.
“Overall, spread of the covid-19 in Bali is relatively lower than elsewhere. But once again, what we need to build in Bali is public trust, the trust from domestic and international tourists, because tourism business is a business of trust,” he continued.
On a work visit to Bali, the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy is assisted by the Governor of Bali I Wayan Koster, Vice Governor of Bali Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati (Cok Ace), Chief of Bali Regional Police Inspector General Police Dr. Petrus Reinhard Golose, President Director of ITDC Abdullah M. Mansoer, Managing Director The Nusa Dua I Gusti Ngutah Ardita, along with the official leaders from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy.
He also encouraged the Provincial Government of Bali to carry out three opening stages in a number of sectors in Bali. After the first opening stage was considered successful with the implementation of strict health protocols. He expected that the next stage can be passed quickly.
“Therefore, I ask the practitioners of tourism and creative economy sector to be able to implement it well. So that we can review all the stages process and we can enter the next stages faster,” he added.
