Bali News: Minister Predicts Recovery by May
Click Image to Enlarge

(1/11/2003)

In a press conference held at the Prambanan Monument Park in Yogyakarta on Wednesday, January 8, Minister for Culture and Tourism I Gede Ardika said he hoped that the Country's tourism economy will have recovered from the after effects of last October's bombing in Bali by May of 2003.

Ringed Levels of Fallout from Bali Blast

Minister Ardika described Bali, Yogyakarta, and Toraja (Sulawesi) as occupying the "1st ring" suffering the most severe economic setbacks resulting from the October bombing. A "2nd ring" comprised of Medan, Jakarta, and Batam – according to the Minister, were less strongly affected in terms of the downturn in tourist visitors following the blasts.

A Four Step Recovery Process

The Minister used the opportunity afforded by the Press Conference to re-outline the Government's four-step road to recovery. The first phase ended on December 31, 2002, and was dominated by rescue and clean-up efforts following the October 12th terror attacks. The second phase of recovery concerns itself with the humanitarian aspects of the attacks' aftermath by attending to its victims and the wounded, and their families. Phase three, dealing with rehabilitation, will take place between January to May 2003 further complementing the ongoing humanitarian relief while commencing a program of domestic and international tourism promotion preceding a period of normalization from May until December 2003. Finally in 2004, the final phase of recovery will take place with the emphasis moving to development and rehabilitation efforts.

3,000 Arrivals Equals Break Even

The Minister said Bali was now targeting 3,000 foreign arrivals per day via the island's airport, a figure estimated by Pak Ardika to bring hotel occupancies to a financial break even point. Daily arrivals just prior to the terror attack were averaging some 5,000 people per day and dropped to a figure as low as 800 in the period immediately following the October bombings.
