Between 6,000 and 8,000 young Balinese will be sent abroad in 2009 to work on foreign cruise ships. The Head of job placements and employment opportunities for the Bali Manpower, Transmigration and Population office, Anak Agung Putra Adhi, said he hopes the target could be achieved, given the high demand for Balinese youths to work on floating hotels.

Speaking to, Adhi confirmed that for the period January-June 2009, some 2,500 Balinese have been sent to work on cruise ships by the 33 manpower supply companies licensed in Bali. He also revealed that for the entire year of 2008 the total of Balinese leaving to work on cruise ships equaled 4,000 workers, an increase from the 3,0000 workers leaving to work on ships the previous year.

Demonstrating the strong demand for Balinese workers abroad, Adhi cited a Spanish shipping company who recently asked for 500 more Balinese chip workers in addition to the 750 already employed by that cruise line. "The opportunities to work in Spain and other companies are open for the young generation of Balinese, providing they possess certain skills including foreign language abilities," he explained.

The man charged with assisting in the placement of Balinese in new employment opportunities said the talent of the Balinese workers, their high work ethic, discipline, dedication and the lack of problems they bring to the workplace make them sought after by foreigner employers.

Balinese workers are now employed in 30 countries, many as ships' crews workers sailing the oceans of the world, with the remainder mainly employed in the international hotel and restaurant industry.
