Innovations are constantly being designed by the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy (Menparekraf) Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno to accelerate the recovery of Bali tourism so that it will rise during the pandemic. One of them is by designing work and school programs from Bali. To realize the program, Sandi will collaborate with the Central Executive Board of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association or BPP PHRI and PHRI Bali.
This was revealed by Sandiaga Uno during a working visit to Bali. He met directly with various tourism stakeholders on the island of Bali.
The minister said the idea of working and schooling from Bali was to create a comfortable area to work and study from tourist attractions.
“Currently, the need for schools for this program is being pursued, including later transportation cooperation and network services that will continue to be improved,” he said.
Sandi said that the work and school program from Bali is expected to be implemented in March 2021, especially since the market potential of the program is considered very large.
“It is estimated that there are about 5,000-7,000 people who will be initiated for the first phase with enthusiasts from the cities of Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi, and also Surabaya,” he explained.
Chairman of BPP PHRI, Hariyadi Sukamdani said, PHRI encourages work and school programs from Bali to be realized as soon as possible.
“We (PHRI) have made a partnership with airlines to facilitate transportation by air to Bali. If this program can be realized, it is hoped that it will revive the tourism economy in Bali, “he said.
