Anom said the formation of the BPTB must involve the provincial government of Bali, the regencies and municipalities of Bali, the Bali Tourism Board (GIPI) and its members. He added that the BTPB must also include participation by Bali’s tourism academies, such as the STP Bali, the tourism faculty of Udayana University and others. In order to maintain the organization’s neutrality, Anom also wants to see journalists and the press included in the BTPB’s formation.
The BTPB is envisioned as coordinating all tourism promotion activities and in the preparation of promotional materials that are both valid and up-to-date.
