The theme of the 52nd Annual Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Conference to be held in Bali April 13-17, 2002, has been announced.

In adopting the theme, PATA is reminding the tourism industry of the special role it plays in the promotion and preservation of indigenous cultural traditions around the world.
Program details, including exciting pre and post conference tour options, will be announced in the coming weeks and months.
