The Bali Tourism Board (BTB) has formally received a report from its outgoing Chairman Bagus Sudibya at a meeting attended by representatives of all the stakeholder organizations which comprise the private-sector tourism promotion body.

At a meeting chaired by the incoming BTB Chairman, Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, the outgoing Chairman's report covering the period of his leadership was received by the BTB with "several notations" and the explanation that any activities connected with the expenditure of Bali recovery funds was the business of Jakarta to accept or reject.

Wijaya told the Indonesian-language BisnisBali, "We receive the accountability report of the BTB Chairman (outgoing) regarding routine expenditures." He added, however, that several sections of the report dealing with finance require further clarification.

The Vice-Chairman of BTB, Tjok Artha Ardhana Sukawati, echoed the new Chairman's words accepting the accountability for routine expenditures of the organization but insisted the second part of the accountability report dealing with the use of Bali recovery funds was for programs still in progress and could only be approved by Jakarta.

Several stakeholder organizations attending the accountability meeting held on Monday, March 5, 2007, suggested the accountability report of the outgoing BTB Chairman should be reviewed by an independent auditor.

Ad Hoc Committee for Bali's Recovery

Meanwhile, the BTB has taken the step of appointing an ad hoc committee charged with continuing the important work of helping the Bali tourism industry's recovery. Appointed to head the ad hoc recovery committee was the past-chairman of the BTB, Bagus Sudibya. Within the same recovery committee John Panca, the Chairman of the Indonesian Association of Professional Conference Organizers (SIPCO), was assigned the task of heading a special committee to seek sources of funding for Bali's recovery effort.

The BTB have announced their intention to soon convene a general assembly of its members to establish a formal work program for the year ahead.
