Denpasar, Bali (ANTARA) - Head of the Bali Regional National Crafts Council (Dekranasda) Putri Suastini Koster said she expects the implementation of the 8th Miss Global event in the province to promote Balinese customs and culture to the world.

"We ask the committee to coordinate with related agencies (in implementing the event). For instance, if the committee wants to present quality Balinese dance performances, they should coordinate with the Bali Provincial Culture Office," she said in a statement issued here on Monday.

She met with national director, Miss Global Indonesia, Kishanty Hardaningtyas, on April 10, 2022.

Bali province has been chosen as the venue for the 8th Miss Global event, which will be attended by representatives of 85 countries.

The global beauty pageant is planned to be held at Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC), Badung district, Bali province, from May 31 to June 11, 2022.

Koster, who is also head of the Family Welfare Development (PKK) Encouragement Team, has lauded and voiced support for the event, which is expected to accelerate the economic recovery of the Balinese people.

"Through the event, we can show the world the condition of tourism in Bali province, which is gradually recovering," she said.

In addition to traditional dance performances, the provincial government of Bali is also ready to support and coordinate to implement other supporting activities to make the prestigious event a success.

Bali Dekranasda head, who is also the wife of Bali Governor I Wayan Koster, will invite Miss Global participants to visit the Balinese Small and Medium Industry (IKM) Revival Exhibition to view the handicrafts of Balinese micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSMEs) actors.

"Thus, the implementation of Miss Global event in Bali province can have a positive impact, not only for the tourism sector, but also for local MSMEs," she said.
