Miss World to have positive impact on economy, tourism

Academics and tourism-industry stakeholders agreed that the upcoming Miss World pageant in Bali this week would have an incredible impact on the island’s economy.

 I Gusti Wayan Murjana Yasa, a noted economist at the University of Udayana, pointed out that the contest would be screened live in 60 countries.

“There will be millions of viewers watching this event, which is taking place in our island,” Yasa said adding it would promote not only Bali but also Indonesia.

Yasa said that the organizing committee had planned to ask candidates of Miss World to wear Balinese traditional textile endek in one of the many sessions. “When the beauty queens wear endek, it will promote the textile to the international audience.”

It would also have a multiplier economic impact on textile producers, weavers and sellers.

In terms of tourism, the success of this event will send out the message across the world that Bali is a destination for world-class events.

“We are expecting the contest to run smoothly and peacefully without any security issues,” he said.

A band of Islamic hardliners pledged to stop the pageant, which they said is against Islamic value. Protests against Miss World pageant sparked everywhere in the country from Aceh, to Jakarta and many parts of Java Island.

To ensure the security of the event, around 1,000 police personnel will be deployed to secure the pageant. “Security for the Miss World event will be our test case for safeguarding other important summits and conferences,” Bali Police chief Insp. Gen. Arief Wahyunadi said recently.

Hundreds of Laskar Bali residents showed their support and said they would help safeguard the event. Not to mention, the pecalang (traditional Balinese security guards) who are ready to protect Bali.

Ida Bagus Kade Subhiksu, head of Bali Tourism office, said that the arrival of more than 130 Miss World contestants, together with 1,400 international journalists covering the event, would have a significant effect on the island’s tourism.

“It will be free promotion for Bali,” Subhiksu said.

During their stay in Bali, participants of Miss World will visit the island’s tourism spots such as Pura Besakih Temple, Tanah Lot and Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park.

The contestants will stay in Bali until Sept. 14 before heading to Bogor in West Java for the final session on Sept. 28.
