 - Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) Erick Thohir directly inspected the progress of the construction of the Bali Maritime Tourism Hub (BMTH) in the Benoa Harbor area, Bali. During his visit, the Minister of BUMN encouraged Pelindo as a development agent to immediately complete the construction of the BMTH to encourage tourism in Bali and of course Indonesia.

Currently, the construction progress of the Benoa BMTH is quite significant, and is targeted to be completed in September 2024. With the support of the Regional Government, Provincial Government and related Ministries such as the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries and the Ministry of Transportation, I am confident that the BMTH can be completed according to the target.

"With this solution, we will be able to create a tourism ecosystem in Bali and also have the potential to produce a multiplier effect which will contribute to Bali's GRDP up to 2.7 times, as well as increasing foreign tourist visits to Benoa Harbor 1.5 times and domestic tourists up to 2 times. " Said Erick Thohir.

Erick added that the presence of BMTH has become an attraction for foreign tourists through cruises, as proven by 2023, Benoa Port will successfully host 48 cruises with a passenger flow of up to 77 thousand people. This is an indication of the potential for increasing new tourist visits to Bali from the sea side.

“This has good potential. "This year, with various capacity additions at BMTH, we are sure the number will increase," said Erick.

As is known, BMTH is a national strategic project launched by Pelindo (PT Pelabuhan Indonesia) to develop Benoa Harbor, Bali, into a leading maritime tourism hub. BMTH integrates the tourism, port and entertainment sectors to create a multiplier effect for regional and national economic growth.

Pelindo Main Director Arif Suhartono explained that during the construction of this project, BMTH employed around 1,900 local workers for its construction. BMTH is also expected to encourage local economic growth and open new job opportunities for people around the Benoa area.

"The progress of the BMTH construction has now reached 93%. This shows the commitment and hard work of all parties involved in this project, and in accordance with the direction of the Minister of BUMN, it will soon be completed in September 2024," concluded Arif.
