Vice-President Boediono Declares Bali’s Governor a ‘Fantastic Salesman’

(9/16/2012) Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has been cited as a “fantastic salesman” for his island by the vice-president of Indonesia, Beodiono.

The Vice-president bestowed the praise on Bali’s governor during the opening of the 25th World LP Gas Forum held at the Bali International Convention Center in Nusa Dua, Bali on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.

Beritabali.com reports that the comments from Boediono occurred after hearing governor Pastika speak at the World LP Gas Forum.

In addressing a thousand delegates form 67 countries, Pastika used the opportunity to promote Bali as a tourist destination; declaring Bali as the “Island of Love.

Pastika explained how Bali earned the moniker following the filming of Eat Pray Love starring Julia Roberts. Because of this, Bali has become a sought after destination for couples on holiday.

The governor said older couples come to Bali renew their commitment. Young people come to Bali come to plan their weddings to be held in Bali.

Pastika brought the crowd to laughter when he issued a reminder to those panning to marry in Bali, saying, “don’t forget to invite me to the wedding.”

Taking the speakers podium after the governor, vice-president Boediono declared Pastika a “fantastic salesman" for his island.
