DENPASAR, Small balinese pulai with slogan “Showcase of world tourism”, “Gateway to the archipelago” and making Bali the locomotive of Indonesia’s tourist economic development, is not without consequences. In normal situations, tourism in Bali is capable of generating an average exchange rate of $ 130 trillion per year, not to mention value-added sector followed, the creative economy industry of Bali’s buffer zones.

It is normal for “Bali” to require special attention from all parties in order to be able to “heal itself”, this requires commitment and political willsaid the National Seminar Committee on Nawa Cita Pariwisata Indonesia (NCPI), Nyoman Baskara.

“Finding a way out is not just the crisis due to the pandemic, but great design Bali’s economic recovery is sustainable. We haven’t learned enough from the tourism crisis in Bali during the Gulf War, Bomb I, Bomb II, the Mount Agung disaster and the current pandemic. “Replace” great design, a particular scenario for the development of Bali, which is not based solely on a single sector. Stake the holder development of Pentahelix, need to sit down together. So that the reality of tourism becomes a bonus of the implementation of the development of Bali durable“It’s real,” said Diah Permana, the chairman of the NCPI seminar organizer.

Bali, which was originally an economic engine with a foreign exchange source of $ 130 trillion per year, suffered an average loss of $ 9 trillion per month during the pandemic period. It can be calculated the rate of unemployment growth of the main workers of the tourism industry, then of the supporting sectors. According to the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), Indonesia’s economic growth in the second quarter of 2020 contracted or less than 5.22%. Bali experienced the greatest impact of Bali’s economic growth, reaching minus 12.8%. Based on these conditions, great-design “The efforts to save Bali’s economy in the medium term 2-3 years (2022-2023), are important and must be immediately compiled, agreed and implemented,” said NCPI Bali DPW Chairman Agus Mahayasa.

Referring to the opinion of the British economist John Maynard Keynes, in his book: The general theory of interest and money (1936) and in the historical archives of economics, his theory was a savior of the moment great Depression world of the 1930s. And now it is being used again by many countries to save their country’s economy. In condition “In the race, we are all dead”, economic policy, the benefits must be immediately felt for the community.

In NCPI Bali’s analysis, the majority of tourism businesses are fundamentally healthy, but in a continuing pandemic situation they are likely to face a risk of bankruptcy, so special financial policies are needed. The importance of providing additional education to the public, especially those involved in the tourism industry with economic assumptions and alternatives after the COVID-19 pandemic. This is because the global economy and global tourism are not reverting to the old model, adaptations are needed to respond to the changes.

Policy correction

According to NCPI Bali, it is time for policymakers to prepare corrections to Bali’s economic policies that are more respectful of nature and the environment, culture-friendly folk tourism, development of appropriate industries in the agricultural sector , the processing industry and the potential for the health and education industry in the future. NCPI has warned green industry is one of the main opportunities for economic diversification to drive the transformation of the Balinese economy.

The development of Bali with the vision and mission of “Nangun Sat Kerthi Loka Bali” gives its own meaning that the exploration and development of local potential as local wisdon, such as: customs, culture and environment are absolutely necessary. To support this, the NCPI sees the importance of aligning policies with agriculture in a broader sense.

“Agriculture with all its elements is the cultural root of Balinese society which is the spirit of cultural tourism itself,” said Nyoman Sunarta, NCPI seminar committee.

It is to be feared that the development of a development which relies only on the tourism sector is a repeat of the crises that have hit Bali.
