BisnisBali reports that 70 Bali travel agents may soon be expelled from the Association of Indonesian Travel Agents (ASITA) as a precursor to the companies' eventual closure by the Indonesian government.

The Chairman of ASITA-Bali, Al Purwa, announced that the 70 "unhealthy" travel agents are being given 3 months to get their house in order or face expulsion from the trade organization. Said Purwa, "We will ask ASITA headquarters to revoke the memberships of the 70 Bali members who are no longer healthy." The 70 companies, according to Purwa, have not responded to repeated attempts by ASITA-Bali to make contact and do not take an active role as a member of the organization.

Purwa fears that the failure to make any contact with the subject companies may indicate that operations have ceased and the enterprise is bankrupt.

Purwa told the press that if the 70 Bali travel agents do not respond during the final 3 month deadline period not only will they lose their ASITA affiliation but face the possibility of license revocation as ASITA will also seek the suspension of the dormant companies operating licenses.

Bali currently has 320 registered travel agents, including the 70 "unhealthy" companies now slated for license suspension.

Purwa questioned the wisdom of the government's continuing granting of new travel agency licenses, despite the growing number of non-viable travel operators. Complained Purwa: "What does the government want? Do they want well organized travel agencies or companies that are in disarray?"
