(1/13/2004)

Indonesia's Ambassador to South Africa, Mr. M. Abdul Nasier, led a group of South African business people on a working tour of Bali including a call of the Island's Vice-Governor, Drs. AAN Puspayoga on Thursday, January 8, 2003.

During that meeting the group offered its assistance to help Bali develop the island's beachfront areas into attractive waterfront complexes modeled on the very successful tourist areas operating in Capetown, the legislative capital of South Africa. The group, including a well-known South African Architect, Mr. de Kock, suggested that Bali's many waterfronts offered opportunities to develop integrated attractions, including water sports, ports, restaurants, art galleries, pubs, and entertainment centers. By utilizing the Capetown business model for port development, additional foreign visitors would be drawn to Bali.

Mr. de Kock explained how a well-produced and successful waterfront complex can also provide an economic multiplier effect on the communities surrounding the complex. Emphasizing the role played by the waterfront, Mr. de Kock said, "before the development of the waterfront visitors to the Capital of South Africa numbered only in the thousands but now reach one million in a single month."

The Vice-Governor welcomed the suggestion from the South African visitors and hoped a preliminary feasibility study might be done to see if the proposal would work in Bali and ensure such a development is in keeping with plans to make Denpasar a cultural center, integrating cultural products and handicrafts into any final plan for the proposed waterfront.
