21 Honorary Consuls representing Indonesia around the world visited Bali in late October to view first-hand the wide range of tourist attractions and supporting infrastructure available on the island.

On Monday, October 27, 2008, the business people who provide diplomatic representation for the Republic in their respective home towns met with Governor Made Pastika. Governor Pastika praised the visit as being very beneficial to the people of Bali, explaining that such a visit "indirectly becomes of part of the unpaid promotion of Bali tourism," representing an efficient way to promote the island to the world.

In his remarks to the 21 honorary consuls, Pastika described Bali's current condition as conducive to tourism. Adding, that despite the effects of two terrorist attacks, Bali is slowly re-establishing its security situation. It is the Governor's hope that the current security situation can be maintained and continually improved, preserving Bali's reputation as a favorite tourism destination.

As proof of the restoration of Bali's good name in tourism circles the Governor pointed to the recently completed Asian Beach Games, world marksmanship tournament, Kuta Karnival and the Readers & Writers Festival just held in Ubud.

Calling on the consuls to help promote Bali tourism in their respective home locales, Pastika said Bali had much more to offer than just the well known destinations of Kuta Beach, Nusa Dua and Ubud. Pastika said: "Bali has many other tourism object that are unique and interesting to visit. Almost every village in Bali possesses its own unique charm."

Leading the group of visiting counsels was Handriyono Kusumo Priyo who said that the "Honorary Consul Tour" was being conducted for the first time as a means of thanking the consuls, most of whom are entrepreneurs in their home countries, for their loyal service to Indonesia and increase their knowledge of Indonesia's vibrant tourism industry.

One member of the group, Nalan Rimer, the honorary consul for Indonesia in Turkey, said he was proud to represent Indonesia and would do everything in his power to raise the visibility of Bali and Indonesia.

In addition to Bali, the 21 visiting honorary consuls also visited Central Java and Yogyakarta during their national tour.
