(1/14/2002)

The Chief of Tourism for the Province of Bali, Dr. Ir. Gde Pitana, M. Sc announced to the press and Public on Friday, January 11, 2002, that Bali's Governor Dewa Beratha has formally revoked his own decision made in May of 2000 that established the Bali Tourism Board (BTB).

In dissolving the BTB, which was charged with coordinating the promotion of Bali tourism, the Governor took the somewhat unusual step of asking that all components of the tourism community refrain from using BTB's name for any future forum or organization while, at the same time, inviting the island's tourism industry to establish any forum, organization or grouping that they desire in order to preserve the harmony between the various tourism sectors.

The official demise of the BTB is the culmination of a series of events which commenced with the recent resignation of the group's chairman, Mr. I Gusti Bagus Yudhara. Mr. Yudhara, left the organization after a barrage of criticism, primarily from the Chief of Bali's Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) who felt the organization was unrepresentative of the stakeholders in Bali's tourism industry. The caretaker-Chairman of the BTB, who then assumed leadership of the group, Mr. Ir. Made Suryawan, launched into a acrimonious public debate in the local press with PHRI's Chairman, Gede Wiratha.

Apparently, with the BTB becoming politically "too hot to handle" and the focus of divisiveness within the ranks of Bali's tourism leadership, the Governor eventually took the decision to shut down the BTB.
