(12/17/2017) reports that Governor Made Mangku Pastika has again emphasised that the Island of Bali remains safe for tourist visitors, despite the continuing active status of the Mount Agung volcano.

The Governor underlined this fact in a meeting with the Consul General of the People’s Republic of China, Hu Yinguan, held in Pastika’s office on Wednesday, December 13, 2017.

Continuing to comment, Pastika said there is a need to provide a more complete understanding surrounding the condition of Mount Agung and the Island of Bali as a whole. He said there is a widespread view that the entire island is at the highest alert level of “4” when, in fact, only Mount Agung and a surrounding radius of 8 kilometres is included in the warning. He also said that the situation is under control with trained workers and equipment is now in place to deal with any eventuality connected with Mount Agung. The governor reminded that people living near the Mountain have now largely been removed to a safe distance and the public in Bali posses a high degree of understanding on how to deal with the volcano in the event of an eruption

The Governor told the Chinese Consul that the precautionary and temporary closing of Bali’s airport in late November lasted for only 2.5 days and that the airport is once again fully operational. For this reason, he called on the Chinese Government to tell its citizens that Bali remains safe for tourists. Adding: “Please holiday in Bali. I am certain that Chinese tourists love Bali and want to holiday here again.”

Pastika also took the opportunity to thank the People of China for donations made to the Balinese who have evacuated the slopes surrounding Mount Agung and for providing scholarships for Balinese youth.

Consul Hu explained that the Government of China had issued their travel warning not because of any direct danger from an eruption but because of fears that the Island’s Airport could be closed and disrupt travel. And, despite the warnings, he admitted that many Chinese travellers were still making their way to Bali. He said he hope Mount Agung’s volcanic status would soon reduce to hasten the recovery of the tourism industry and a softening of the current travel alert.
