jpnn.com, JAKARTA – The Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy / Head of the Tourism and Creative Economy Agency, Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno, will prepare strategic steps to help restore tourist villages from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
As is known, Sandiaga visited Kutuh Tourism Village, Badung Regency, Bali on Thursday (11/2) night, a tourism village with an independent status that became a national pilot.
Before the pandemic, Kutuh Tourism Village with Pandawa Beach as one of its main attractions was usually visited by 3,000 tourists per day. The tourism yield from this village is at least IDR 50 billion per year.
“But because of the pandemic, their income has decreased by 90 percent, resulting in more than 200 small businesses and more than 290 workers and 3,000 more residents in this traditional village whose economy has declined,” Sandiaga said in his statement, Friday (12/2).
The visit was also attended by Deputy Regent of Badung Ketut Suiasa, Bendesa Adat Kutuh I Nyoman Egypt, Head of Kutuh I Wayan Badra Traditional Village, Chairman of Pokdarwis / Chairman of New Normal Wayan Duartha, Covid-19 Task Force, Kutuh Ketut Gita Village, Managing Director of BUMDA, Kutuh Ni Luh Traditional Village Hepi Wiradani, as well as Deputy of Destination and Infrastructure Development at the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy / Baparekraf Hari Sungkari and Deputy for Institutional Resources of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy / Baparekraf Wisnu Bring Tarunajaya.
From the results of the review and discussion, Sandiaga said he would prepare programs and strategic steps that were fast, right on target, right on benefits, and on time.
According to him, at Bendesa Adat, the survival rate is only sufficient until next March. Sandiaga called this an emergency. Therefore, his party will immediately bring back the proposal submitted from the customary village.
“I will discuss with the deputy regent. Hopefully we can provide a touch that is right on the benefits, right on target, and on time. Because we must really save the tourism sector and the creative economy,” Sandiaga said.
