(1/6/2003)

One of Bali's most welcomed guests over the just past Christmas and New Year Holiday period was well-known international travel personality Ms. Barbara M. Peisert, the Chief of Planning and Long Haul Travel for the powerful TUI group.

Eager to give a personal imprimatur to efforts to revitalize travel to Bali, Barbara, a key decision-maker at the world's largest travel group paid Bali the special compliment of deciding to spend the holiday with her many friends and admirers on the island of the gods.

Bali and TUI Remain Inseparable

Visited by the local press during her stay, Barbara was quoted in the local Bali Post as vehemently denying any rumors that TUI was considering dropping Bali from its coming brochure of tour offerings. Saying such reports were "absolutely false", she said her current visit to Bali gave the chance to see first-hand the situation on the ground and demonstrated there exists no reason for her company not to sell Bali to its clients.

When asked what Bali should do to speed its recovery as a world tourism destination, Barbara suggested that it might best use the current quiet interlude to upgrade and repair public facilities - such as cleaning and repairing its beaches, placing the island in a strong promotion position once it's time to resume heavy promotion.

Barbara on Security

When quizzed on security, Barbara encouraged the Government in its ongoing efforts to enhance overall safety and security on the island, emphasizing the need to perhaps promote less visible safety measures over the high-profile and heavily armed presence at ports which have the potential of frightening away visitors.

Wait and See

In her interview with local press, TUI's Contracting Boss felt confident that once foreign governments lifted the current travel advisories for Indonesia, Bali would quickly regain its commercial footing. According to the report of the interview in the local press, Barbara Peisert said TUI's traffic to Bali is down some 50% in the wake of the October 12th terror attack on a local night spot.

At the same time, according to the report, she admitted that the speed at which travel to Asia will recover would have to be completely reassessed if President George Bush pushed ahead with plans to invade Iraq.
