As reported by The Jakarta Post, Bali is targeting 3.1 million foreign tourist visitors in 2013, based on the belief that improvements in the island’s infrastructure will add to the island’s appeal.

Bali is in the process of completing a toll road connecting Benoa – Ngurah Rai Airport – Nusa Dua, a traffic underpass at Simpang Siur and an extensive renovation of Bali’s airport facility.

Ida Bagus Subhisku, the chief of provincial tourism for Bali, is projecting a 10% increase in foreign arrivals in 2013.

2012 arrivals are expected to total near 2.8 million by year’s end. The Bali Central Statistic Bureau says 2.4 million overseas tourists have visited Bali through the end of October.

2103 arrivals will be bolstered by a number of important meetings planned for Bali next year, including the APEC Summit of Asia-Pacific leaders in the latter part of the year. 

In addition to a flourishing meeting, incentive, conference and exhibition sector (MICE), Bali is also focusing on developing spiritual, agricultural, water and retirement tourism. 

The chairman of the Indonesia Tourism Association (GIPI), Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, says that growth in tourism number would not exceed 10% in 2013. “We haven’t set a high target because there are still a lot of things that need to be improved,” he admitted.
