Officials from the Bali House of Representatives still urge the central government to keep the plan to reopen the international travel corridor on track amid the implementation of the emergency partial lockdown.
During the plenary session on Tuesday (6/7), one of Bali Senators, Wayan Rawan Atmaja said that the plan to implement the international travel arrangement program must continue to prevent a further damage to Bali’s economy in the future. “We’re still supporting the plan to reopen our border to international visitors with strict prevention protocols in place.” Atmaja said.
Other Bali Senators also remind the central government to support all the efforts that have been made by the Bali provincial government to help the tourism sector in Bali to revive from this devastating crisis. Meanwhile the Deputy Chief of Bali Senator, Nyoman Suyasa also stated that the Covid-19 pandemic has destroyed the economy of the island that has been reliant on tourism to survive. “Despite having a concern for the people’s health during this Covid-19 pandemic, we’re also very concerned about the financial situation of most Bali residents who have been relying on the tourism sector to survive.” Suyasa said on Wednesday (7/7).
After considering many different aspects, Suyasa still urged the central government to reopen the border to the vaccinated tourists in near future. “I think the Bali Governor needs to send a letter to the President, asking to reopen our border with strict prevention protocols such as a negative PCR test and showing proof of the Covid-19 vaccine upon their arrival.” Suyasa concluded.
