(10/3/2005)

Early on the morning of Sunday, October 2, 2005, community leaders and representatives of Bali's tourism industry convened an emergency meeting following the tragic bombing of two Bali dining venues the night before.

In a meeting called by the Chairman of the Bali Tourism Board (BTB), Bagus Sudibya, members of the Balinese community and travel industry were immediately deployed to assist in the relief and humanitarian efforts already underway. To assist visitors to Bali, those injured in the latest attack, and the families of the bereaved, BTB is setting up coordination centers at the Bali International Airport and the Sanglah General Hospital (RSUP) in downtown Denpasar. To keep the world community informed of developments in the ongoing investigation and rescue efforts, BTB is establishing a press center in the Inna Kuta Hotel located along Kuta's famous beach.

"The world-wide threat of terrorism has sadly returned to Bali after an absence of three years and interim visits to London, Egypt, Spain, Thailand and other countries," said Sudibya in commenting on the latest bombings. "That we are all victims of a common enemy is underlined by the fact that, once again, Balinese and Indonesians together with foreign tourists lost their lives and sustained serious injuries in the latest attack."

Indonesian leaders have unanimously condemned the latest outrage with President Bambang Yudhoyono flying to Bali on Sunday (2/10) to personally survey the destruction, console the grieving, comfort the injured and coordinate the intensive manhunt for those responsible for the attack.

PATA CONDEMNS BALI BOMB BLASTS

Asia Pacific tourism leaders meeting in the Malaysian capital condemned the cowardly bombing of tourists and local people in Bali, Indonesia.

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Chairman, Mr Nobutaka Ishikure, speaking during the association's Board of Directors meeting in Kuala Lumpur said, "The travel industry and everyone who supports tourism as a force for peace and understanding wholeheartedly condemn this terrorist outrage."

He added: "At this sad hour, all of us stand behind the people of Indonesia who have recently done so much to improve security and bring back tourism to Bali. We offer our full support to the Indonesian people and thank their authorities for responding quickly to this tragedy."

Mr Thamrin Bachri, Director General of Marketing, Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Indonesia, and member of the PATA Board of Directors, said in Kuala Lumpur, "Indonesia condemns in the strongest terms this senseless attack. Our government will do what it can to return the situation to normal as soon as possible."

PATA Vice President, Mr Peter Semone, flew to Bali on Sunday to assess the full impact of this tragic event and help coordinate the tourism industry response.
