Bali Reborn – Bali Bangkit

Bali Reborn – Bali Bangkit

It’s been 2 years since the Bali economy has been collapse during the Covid-19 pandemic. About 54% of the Bali economy supported by the tourism sector, tourism is the main driver of the Balinese economy which has had an impact on other sectors, such as: trade, agriculture, services, transportation, etc. From March to the end of December 2020, Bali’s economy declined by 12.21%.

In Bali, the lack of circulation of funds in the community is a real challenge faced today for each person and family, it is increasingly difficult to meet basic needs (food, education, electricity, water, etc.). It is equally difficult to start a new business or maintain an existing one, the level of job security and income to meet daily needs drastically decreases. Bali’s economy in the first quarter of 2021 recorded a negative growth (contraction) of -5.24%, when compared to the achievements of the fourth quarter – 2020. Meanwhile, when compared to the same period the previous year, Bali’s economy in the quarter – 2021 recorded a negative growth of -9, 85%. In terms of production, Bali’s economic structure in the first quarter of 2021 was still dominated by Category I (Provision of Accommodation and Food and Drink) which recorded a contribution of 17.39%. Meanwhile, in terms of expenditure, the largest contribution was recorded in the Household Consumption Component, it’s 57,09%. Bali’s economy contracted again as deep as 2.91% in the third quarter of 2021 (year-on-year/yoy). This contraction occurred after briefly rising from a recession by experiencing positive growth in the second quarter of 2021 of 2,88%.

To help restore the local economy, the Government of Indonesia and the Provincial Government of Bali in the near future will launch the Bali Bangkit (Bali Reborn) campaign in order to achieve a green zone or Covid-19 free zone, especially in 3 (three) Bali tourism destinations, namely: Denpasar city, Gianyar regency and Badung regency. Through this initiative, through a multidimensional and focused approach, the Ministry of Health asked UNICEF to carry out a campaign called RCCE (Risk Communication and Community Engagement) – Campaign and Community Engagement as part of the #BaliBangkit movement. This intervention is specifically to promote behaviour to overcome Covid-19, through the 3M+ movement and Covid-19 vaccination in targeted community groups. In accordance with the BLC monitoring system built by the National Covid-19 Task Force, the use of masks and social distancing in Bali is actually very high. On August 23, 2021, it was reported that the compliance level of the Balinese people in implementing health protocols ranged from 96% – 99%, indicating a very high level of compliance. Meanwhile, the case rate in Bali as of August 26, 2021 is still quite high, at 102,140 cases, ranking 9th in Indonesia. The addition of cases in Bali per day peaked on August 13, 2021 as many as 1,910 cases and gradually decreased to 3 cases on December 30, 2021. On the other hand, the vaccination rate in Bali for stage I reached 99.12% and stage II was more than 83,36%. A high level of compliance and high vaccination rates are no guarantee of a reduction in Covid-19 cases in Bali. This means that there are other things that need to be improved, namely public awareness, especially in household clusters and traditional ceremonies.
