According to the Head of the Bali Tourism Service, IB Kade Subhiksu (Kadisparda), the island’s continuing failure to form a Bali Tourism Promotion Board need not represent an obstacle to the formation of a Bali Convention Bureau.
reports that Subhisku’s office fully supports the establishment of a Bali Convention Bureau
, with Subhiksu citing to the National Tourism Law of 2009
and a subsequent decree issued by the Minister of Tourism and Culture
in 2009, as authorizing the creation of a legal body charged with promoting meetings, conferences, incentives and exhibitions to Bali.
Moreover, because the laws governing the creation of an umbrella Bali Tourism Promotion Board
or a Bali Chapter of the Indonesian Association on Tourism (GIPI)
stipulate their foundation be based on groupings of various stake holder organizations, Subhiksu contends that the BCB could merely act as one of the catalyst stake holding groups that would help found the long-awaited Promotion Board.
While his office is still awaiting suggestions and nominees for the formation of a Bali Tourism Promotion Board,
Subhiksu insists plans to form a Bali Convention Bureau
can move ahead without delay.
