(2/14/2014)

The chairman of the Indonesian Congress and Convention Association (INCCA), Ida Bagus Surakusuma (Lolec), has called on the Indonesian Tourism Association (GIPI), the Bali Tourism Promotion Board (BPPD) and all tourism stakeholders to join the battle for more tourism promotion funding from the government.

As reported by Bisnis Bali, Lolec revealed that the BPPD has calculated that Bali needs a minimum of Rp. 20 billion (US$1.64 million) to promote Bali in 2014. Meanwhile, the provincial government of Bali has allocated only Rp. 1.5 billion (US$123,000) in promotional funds for this period,

Lolec acknowledged that the provincial government is giving other social and humanitarian program a higher priority than expenditures for tourism promotion. At the same time, he insists, the importance of developing Bali's tourism can not be ignored.

He called on BPPD to generate detailed budgets and proposal to be reviewed by the provincial and national Houses of Representatives (DPRD-Bali and DPR RI). Budgeting proposals need to be put forward far in advance for consideration and study by legislative bodies or risk being considered late in the budgetary process, leaving only small surplus amounts to be spent on tourism promotion.

Once sufficient funds are put in hand, Lolec said, these monies must be used wisely and transparently to avoid any suggestion of corruption.
