Hope Miss Global event will promote Balinese culture: Dekranasda chef
Through this event, we can show the world the state of tourism in the province of Bali, which is gradually recovering.
Denpasar, Bali (ANTARA) – Putri Suastini Koster, chairwoman of the Bali Regional National Handicrafts Council (Dekranasda), said she expects the implementation of the 8th Miss Global event in the province to promote the Balinese customs and culture around the world.
“We request the committee to coordinate with relevant agencies (in implementing the event). For example, if the committee wants to present quality Balinese dance performances, they should coordinate with the Provincial culture of Bali,” she said in a statement posted here on Monday.
She met the National Director, Miss Global Indonesia, Kishanty Hardaningtyas on April 10, 2022.
The province of Bali has been chosen as the venue for the 8th Miss Global event, which will be attended by representatives from 85 countries.
The global beauty pageant is scheduled to be held at Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC), Badung District, Bali Province, from May 31 to June 11, 2022.
Koster, who also heads the Family Welfare Development Encouragement Team (PKK), hailed and expressed his support for the event, which is expected to speed up the economic recovery of the Balinese people.

In addition to the traditional dance performances, the provincial government of Bali is also ready to support and coordinate the implementation of other supporting activities to make this prestigious event a success.
Bali Chief Dekranasda, who is also the wife of Bali Governor I Wayan Koster, will invite Miss Global contestants to visit the Balinese Small and Medium Industry (IKM) Revival Exhibition to view handicrafts from Balinese micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) actors.
