The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will hold its World Culture for Development Forum in Bali November 24-29, 2013.

According to the Deputy-Minister for Education and Culture, Professor Ir. Wiendu Nuryanti, Bali’s participation as the host for the Forum will place the island on a par with Davos, Switzerland, where the World Economic Forum is regularly held.

Wiendu said 37 countries will attend the WCF in Bali.

Quoted in Beritbali.com, Wiendu said: “The position of the World Culture Forum is supported by UNESCO who support Bali becoming the headquarters for Forum. At the UNESCO members-meeting recently held in Paris, all the members were called upon to make the World Culture Forum in Bali a success.”

Wiendu added that the WCF is an innovation – the first worldwide forum dealing specifically with issues related to culture.

To ensure the success of the WCF in Bali, 10 countries are being invited to “partner” with Indonesia in the event. Those ten countries are Japan, India, China, Turkey, South Africa, France, the United Kingdom, U.S.A., Russia and Brazil.

These ten countries are expected to prepare speakers and actively participated in the Forum in November.

The desire of Indonesia and UNESCO is that the World Culture Forum becomes a regular event headquartered in Bali.

Current plans for the Bali Forum are for a range of internationally famous speakers to travel to Bali, including former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, for U.S. Vice-president Al Gore and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

Wiendu explained: “The World Culture Forum in Development does not stand alone, but is a dialogue about development and the economy, and how culture must become the main pillar of development. Thus, the discussion of culture in development will be very interesting, creating a synergy and proximity between culture and economic development as the main topic of the coming World Culture Forum."

Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika welcomed the news of Bali’s appointment as the headquarters for the WCF, adding he hoped the event should be self-sustaining without expenditures from the State Budget.

“Let Bali be like Davos in Switzerland who play host to the World Economic Forum. The government shouldn’t expend funds but, instead, earn revenues from such an event,” said Pastika, speaking at the same seminar with Dr. Wiendu Nuryanti.
