The Need for Better Hospitals

The Chief of Bali Tourism Authority Calls on Investors to Build Hospitals, Not More Hotels.

(1/23/2005) Bali's Chief of the Bali Tourism Authority, Gede Nurjaya, quoted in the Indonesian-language Bali Post, has called for future investment in Bali's tourism to be more selective. According to the Island's top tourism official, with more than 35,000 hotel and resort rooms in Bali and more than 70% of those rooms in the southern region of the island, Bali has more than sufficient hotel rooms to meet current demand.

The Need for Modern Medical Facilities

Nurjaya suggested that investors looking for projects in Bali consider infrastructure improvements, such as the construction of a modern, international standard medical center.

In supporting his suggestion, the tourism chief pointed to the rising average age of tourism visitors to Bali and that age group's inclination to select holiday destinations able to provide sophisticated medical care.

Nurjaya said the growing trend in senior citizen travel presented both challenges and opportunities for Bali's tourism industry.
