Wel­come to Bali

The Jakarta Post - Magazine - - Message From The Bali Governor - Made Mangku Pastika Gov­er­nor of Bali

Om Swastyastu, We of­fer our grate­ful thanks to God Almighty for His grace in the hold­ing of the APEC 2013 Sum­mit in Bali. The choice of our is­land as the venue for this pres­ti­gious event is it­self a great honor in dis­play­ing the trust of the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity in the peo­ple of Bali.

I ex­tend my ap­pre­ci­a­tion to The Jakarta Post for its im­por­tant role in en­sur­ing the suc­cess of the event. The Jakarta Post has taken the ini­tia­tive in pub­lish­ing this mag­a­zine guide, show­cas­ing the rich cul­ture and tourist at­trac­tions of Bali, which will of course be a valu­able source of in­for­ma­tion for all APEC par­tic­i­pants.

I also ex­pect that The Jakarta Post, in its ca­pac­ity as In­done­sia’s lead­ing English-lan­guage me­dia with in­ter­na­tional reach, will ef­fec­tively con­vey in­for­ma­tion about the APEC gath­er­ing and also Bali in gen­eral.

It is my hope that all those in­volved in the event, in­clud­ing the mass me­dia, are com­mit­ted to mak­ing it a suc­cess. All must play a vi­tal part in forg­ing stronger global diplo­matic and eco­nomic re­la­tions, as well as build­ing friend­ship and brother­hood among the na­tions of the world.

May God Almighty bless us with His guid­ance and pro­tec­tion to en­sure suc­cess­ful pro­ceed­ings of the APEC Sum­mit in Bali.

In clos­ing, I ex­tend my thanks and ap­pre­ci­a­tion to all.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti Om
