As an island that relies heavily on tourism, the COVID-19 crisis has led to Bali’s most challenging period in recent memory. Our panelists have spent decades in Indonesia’s tourism industry and contributed greatly to its development. They’ll reflect on how the global halt in travel has impacted on the island’s future, and how lessons from the past can be used to tackle the current climate.

Sebagai pulau yang sangat bergantung pada pariwisata, krisis COVID-19 telah menjadi periode paling menantang di Bali dalam ingatan baru-baru ini. Panelis kami telah menghabiskan puluhan tahun di industri pariwisata Indonesia dan berkontribusi besar pada perkembangannya. Mereka akan merenungkan bagaimana penghentian perjalanan global telah berdampak pada masa depan pulau ini, dan bagaimana pelajaran dari masa lalu dapat digunakan untuk mengatasi situasi saat ini.
