During a conference on Tuesday (8/12) with the Indonesian Tourism Training Center (ITTC), Bali Vice Governor, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati (Cok Ace), said that the provincial government is constantly pushing safety measures to regain trust from domestic and international tourists.

Accordingly, the government has introduced the Clean Health Safety Environment (CHSE), essentially a certificate allotted to businesses adhering to safety and prevention protocols outlined by the government.

Cok Ace explained that businesses such as hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, aquatic recreation and travel agencies verified by CHSE are acting in accordance with government standards to ensure customer safety.

Certified businesses also guarantee cashless transactions through an application called Quick Response Code Indonesian Standard (QRIS).

“We must think of the best strategy to recover our economy while cooperating with other countries to determine current travel trends” Cok Ace added.
