The tourism economy in Bali is predicted to remain bright, providing the three main pillars of the tourism industry – infrastructure, safety and service are nurtured. This is the view of a Badung regency lawmaker and member of Commission C of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung), Wayan Puspa Negara.

As reported by Bisnis Bali, Puspa Negara says facilities include infrastructure items such as roadway, floodways, drains, parks, and pedestrian walkways.

Meanwhile, he views safety as security for visitors on several levels, making Bali a “zero crime” zone.

“I hope that officials and the technical units involved in providing service to foreign visitors improve service quality levels. This will give a positive impression to foreign tourism and help make them repeat visitors,” he explained.

By safeguarding these three pillars of tourism – infrastructure, safety and service – Puspa Negara is certain that the regional budget (APBD Badung) of Rp. 2.2 trillion (US$244.4 million) supported by regional hotel and restaurant tax revenues of Rp. 1.3 trillion (US$144.4 million) can be achieved. “With specifications such as these,” the legislator explained, “the Badung regency must focus on developing tourism in order that the three pillars can be further strengthened.”

These three pillars, he believes, must be a prioritized while at the same time strengthening cultural values and conservation as an integral part of tourism development.

Puspa Negara said that as Bali closes 2011, daily tourism arrivals at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport are reaching 11,000 foreign tourists and 12,000 domestic visitors.

In the days just following Christmas Puspa Negara predicted that these numbers would continue to grow through January 1, 2012. He said hotels in the regency were fully booked for the period December 30, 2011 until January 2, 2012.

He was certain that Bali would surpass the targeted 2.6 million foreign tourists in 2011 once final arrivals through the end of the year are counted.
