The Bali provincial government has announced that Bali will host several big events once the international travel corridor reopens in near future.
Bali Governor, I Wayan Koster confirmed that both national and international big events are planned to be held in Bali once the border and the international terminal of Bali Ngurah Rai Airport begin to receive international flights around October 14th 2021.”I need to inform the people that Bali will host multiple international meetings and events once our border reopens in the near future.” Koster said on Thursday (7/10).
He also said that he is very optimistic that the events that were planned to be held in Bali such as The G-20 Conference and multiple sports events will be on track. “Apart from the G-20 Conference, sporting events such as the Badminton World Championships and a Youth Championship Soccer Match for several European Football Clubs from Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona is also planned to be held in Bali in December 2021.” Koster added.
Other than that, a National Football League called BRI League 1 that is considered as the biggest football competition in Indonesia is also planned to be held in Bali. However, Koster reminds that all these events can happen if all the requirements to create a safe environment from Covid-19 transmissions are completed. “Before hosting all of these important events, we need to ensure the central government that Covid-19 transmissions, vaccine distribution, tracing and testing methods are properly handled, so our tourism and economy can recover and everyone stays safe.” Koster concluded.
