Bali is targeting 3 million foreign tourist visitors in 2012, a number, if achieved, that will represent an increase of 8.8% over the 2,756,579 foreign tourists who took a holiday in Bali in 2011.

The 2012 target also portends a slowing in tourism growth rates, down from  2011 when totals grew a more substantial 10.57% over 2010 results.

For the four-year period 2008-2011, Bali experienced an average annual growth of 10% in foreign tourists.

The Head of the Bali Tourism Service (Kadiparda), IB Kade Subhisku, told Bisnis Bali on Wednesday, February 22, 2012, that, in order to reach the stated target, the government needs the support of all tourism stakeholders and the public to overcome the many problems currently confronted by tourism in Bali.

Subhisku, the highest-ranking tourism official in Bali, said issues of cleanliness and traffic congestion are detracting from the overall enjoyment of visitors to the Island. He also expressed concerns that the world economic crisis might still adversely affect Bali’s tourism sector.

He said hard work is needed by both the government and tourism operators to protect the gains and continuing growth achieved by Bali Tourism. He called on all tourism stakeholders to provide input to the government in the development of the tourism industry.
