BADUNG: Badung regency said it plans to revive its hotel and restaurant association, following a five-year absence.

Perry Markus, the secretary of the Bali branch of the Indonesian Hotels and Restaurant Association (PHRI), said Badung was a key tourist destination with hundreds of rated hotels, luxury restaurants and other tourist facilities.

PHRI's Badung branch is important to providing a forum for the regency's tourist industry, he added.

"Badung is undergoing rapid tourist development but many key people in the industry remain unaware of existing regulations, market shares and the real supply and demand of facilities," Perry said. - JP
