The Regent of Badung in Bali, Anak Agung Gede Agung, sees the Miss World Competition to be held in Bali on September 8, 2013 as an outstanding opportunity to promote Bali’s culture, natural beauty and hospitality to the world.

Quoted in Bisnis Bali, Agung, commenting on an ongoing controversy surround the traditional swimming suit competition, said: “I hope the appearance of the contestants in Miss World can be adjusted to Balinese culture, such as the beach fashion section by wearing Balinese sarongs.”
The Regent’s comments were made while receiving a visit by the organizing committee of Miss World 2013 led by its local chairperson Jeby Philippi on Tuesday, June 25, 2013.
Agung underlined that the Badung administration was very supportive of the coming Miss World competition in Bali as a means of promoting Bali to a wider audience and enhancing the meeting, conference, incentive and exhibition (MICE) sector.
The Regent used the occasion to underline the Badung Regency’s overwhelming dependence on the Island’s tourism sector. Of the total Rp. 2.8 trillion annual operating budget for Badung Rehemcy (US$2.8 billion), Rp. 1.8 trillion (US$1.8 billion) is secured via hotel and restaurant taxes. Adding: “Tourism gives such a large contribution to Badung’s income.”
Agung said the growth rate of the economy in 2012 for Badung stood at 7.15% with unemployment at only 1.70%. At the same time the population of Badung is growing at an annual rate of 4,63%, due mostly to migration.
Continuing, Agung told the organizers of Miss World to do their best to make the contest a success, coordinating the event with the National Police Headquarters, the Bali Police and the Bali military command.
The Miss World competition takes place at the Hotel Westin in Bali on September 8, 2013 with contestants from 142 countries, including Indonesia participating.

The contestants will arrive in Bali September 2-5, 2013 staying initially at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Resort near Tanah Lot.
While in Bali the contestants will participate in a golf tournament before the opening ceremony at the Bali International Convention Center on September 8, 2013.
The beauties will remain in Bali until September 14th before traveling to Yogyakarta to visit the Borobudur Temple and the Sultan’s Palace.
