Members of the Bali tourism industry are expressing their happiness with the lowering of the high alert status to “siaga” or “standby” on Sunday, October 29, 2017.
NusaBali quotes the chairman of the Bali Licensed Guide Association (HPI), I Nyoman Nuarta, commenting on an expected increase in holiday visitors, said on the day following the downgrading of the alert, “Although (the change) will not be spontaneous, we’ll feel the effects in a week or two.”
Nuarta said many licensed guides were left without guiding assignments after the high warning alert was imposed for 38 days starting from September 22, 2017. He now expects the workloads for guides to improve markedly in the coming few weeks.
Speaking separately, the chairman of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Association of Travel Agents (ASITA), I Ketut Ardans, sounded a similar note, saying: “This condition (the lowering of the alert status) will certainly be informed to our partners abroad. In the condition of ‘awas’ (the highest rating) Bali was safe, what’s more with the alert lowered to 'siaga' it’s still safe.”
Ardana said that while he had yet to receive a response to the lowered alert level from overseas partners of ASITA in the two days following the change in status. He said he felt certain that these partners are aware of the lowered status. Adding: “There no need to be worried about holidaying in Bali. Nonetheless, people need to remain aware.”
During the 38-days of the highest alert status for Mount Agung, the Balinese tourism economy suffered substantial setbacks as arrivals declined and bookings were canceled.
Estimates of the business downturn ranged between 20-60%.
