In the wake of a torrent of recent criticism attacking the management style of the Bali Tourism Board (BTB) and the manner in which recovery funds have been handled, the heads of the tourism stake holder organizations that steer BTB have met and decided to restructure the private sector group charged with representing the Island's tourism industry.
The nine stake holding organizations that comprise BTB have decided that the Chairmanship position leading the group will be abolished in favor of a "Consortium Coordinator" - the new job title given to the individual who will execute the directives and decision made by the respective chairmen of the nine tourism stake holder groups.
Bagus Sudibya, whose position as Chairman of the BTB has effectively ended with this decision, has been asked to stay on as "Consortium Coordinator" until the Extraordinary General Meeting of the BTB can be convened in January 2007.
Sudibya, quoted in the Bali Post, has said he accepts the decision of the Chairmen of the various stake holder organization who constitute the Board of BTB and will stay on as the caretaker "Consortium Coordinator" until the crucial January meeting is held.
