Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno has invited people to work and study from Bali, as the official began dividing his own office hours to work from the island this week.
Sandiaga started working from Bali yesterday, after he previously announced his plan to be more involved with Bali’s tourism industry recovery amid the pandemic.
“I want to invite business people and other professionals to start considering working from Bali,” Sandiaga said.
The minister said he’s looking into potential policies on “work from Bali” and “study from Bali,” which are still being discussed with local officials as well as the COVID-19 task force.
Sandiaga said that people can work while enjoying the beauty in Bali, which would also help the province’s battered tourism industry.
“There are two functions here, we can be more efficient while enjoying nature in Bali but also helping our tourism and creative economy sector,” Sandiaga said.
He further described getting a “thrill” from working in Bali, which he says improves work efficiency, later adding that being in Bali is lifting up his spirits.
