BADUNG - Minister of Foreign Affairs, Retno Marsudi, and Minister of PUPR (Public Works and Housing), Basuki Hadimuljono, visited the Nusa Dua area, Badung Regency, Bali, to review the readiness of The Nusa Dua, the location for the G20 Summit.

In the tourist area of The Nusa Dua, which is managed by the Indonesia Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), the two ministers visited the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center and the Peninsula Island.

"The visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of PUPR was carried out to see the feasibility of the facilities to be used for the G20", said ITDC President Director, Abdulbar M Mansoer, as quoted by Antara on Tuesday, January 18.

"Earlier the feedback was positive, the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center was only asked to do a little renovation because it had not been used for a long time during COVID-19. I think it will be ready as an alternative location for the G20 presidential meeting", he said.

Abdulbar M Mansoer explained, after visiting the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center, the ministerial group visited the Peninsula Island area as an alternative location for the dinner of the heads of state present.

"We already said that on the Peninsula Island you can get views on the beach and the location is still in The Nusa Dua area so that it will make it easier for traffic management and crowd control", he said.

He revealed, ahead of the implementation of the G20 Summit, ITDC seeks to continue to make improvements and improvements to various infrastructure and facilities.

This was done as a form of The Nusa Dua's readiness to receive the G20 delegation, although previously the area has often been the location for holding various international-level activities such as the IMF-World Bank Group Meeting in 2018.

"With conditions that are indeed difficult for us because hotel occupancy is low, we are still trying our best to improve facilities. We make sure The Nusa Dua and our tenants will be ready to welcome the G20", said Abdulbar M Mansoer.
