The areas of Sanur, Nusa Dua and Kuta have been designated as pilot projects for the development of high quality tourism destinations. These three areas of Bali are to be designed and developed to become role models on how to develop high-quality tourism destinations in other parts of Indonesia.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the plan for developing these three areas was explained by the Minister of Tourism a the Creative Economy, Mari Elka Pangestu, during a visit to the Governor of Bali on Monday, January 13, 2013.

“In designing these areas,” said Pengestu, “the government will always coordinate with the people and include their input to make the end result useful to the local community and to preserve the environment.

The Minister revealed that a process of focus group discussions have been held in the subject communities in order to ascertain the aspirations and needs of the local populace.

Pangestu explained that the foci of national tourism development for 2014 are the design of tourism destinations, the development of facilities and infrastructure, improving the quality of manpower working in tourism, the standardization of tourism workers and tourism promotion.

Nationally, Indonesia is targeting 9.2 million foreign visitors in 2013 with the five leading source markets being Australia, Mainland China, Malaysia, Japan and Singapore.

The Minister told the press that tourism will continue to remain a major force in the national economy, following the example set by the tourism sector that grew 5.26% in 2013 – a figure slightly ahead of the growth rate of national economy as a whole.

Governor Pastika said he welcomed plans by the national government to held design tourism areas and contribute the needed infrastructure projects. Adding: “For the immediate future there are only three areas destined to be pilot project in Bali. They are Merta Sari Beach in Sanur, Pandawa Beach in Kuta and the beach at Nusa Dua.”

Bali’s governor warned that support form the central government must be used wisely to reduce the burden of the regional government and allow their resources to be used in other areas. Pastika urged that the people of Bali must preserve their agrarian society and not all be attracted to work in the cities in tourism.

“Without agriculture, the culture of Bali will be lost. If we lose the culture, then Bali tourism will also be lost,” warned the governor.
