Bali Vice Governor Urges Central Government To Keep The Reopening Plan On Track

Share The Article

Bali Vice Governor, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati (Cok Ace) has urged the central government to keep the plan to reopen the international travel corridor on track.

The man who is serving as the Head of Bali Hotel and Restaurant Association stated that the Bali tourism sector is unable to wait for the border to reopen any longer. He also said that the central government has previously canceled a similar plan in July 2020 due to the surging Covid-19 cases last year, so Cok Ace assumes that there’s no other reason to postpone the reopening plan in July this year.

“On behalf of the tourism industry in Bali, I hope that the border will reopen as planned this July. Because the people have been simply trying to survive since the Covid-19 pandemic struck in 2020.” Cok Ace said. He explained that Bali has been trying their best to overcome the situation by distributing Covid-19 vaccines, implementing strict prevention protocols and even being nominated as the most compliant for wearing masks in Indonesia.

Cok Ace said that according to research, a large number of potential international visitors have been waiting for Bali to reopen its border. “Based on our research, a large number of international visitors are desperately waiting for Bali to reopen as they are getting tired of being unable to travel due to the pandemic.” Cok Ace added. Meanwhile the Head of the Bali Tourism Board, IB Agung Partha Adnyana confirmed that most of the accommodation businesses in Bali have become unable to operate since the Covid-19 pandemic struck. “From a total of 500 hotels in Bali, only 212 of them are still operating, and from the total of 2,000 villas, only 500 of them are still trying to survive.” Adnyana concluded.

Realistically, there are no chances. Only if Bali would be individual state like Cuba, Dominican Republic or Mauritius they would be chances for such efforts.

@L.ynette De March Chelin, impossible, because tourists would like to choice right vaccines for them in what they believe because there are many approved vaccines on the market but perhaps not all available in Indonesia for example. You can’t vaccinate tourists like cattle or livestock’s.
