The biggest event on the island this month will be the 2018 Annual Meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank Group, taking place in Nusa Dua.
From October 8 to 14, the IMF-World Bank meeting is expected to bring more than 15,000 delegates from 189 countries to Bali. The provincial government has quickly completed local development projects like the underpass in front of the Ngurah Rai airport and the long-awaited Garuda Wisnu Kencana that was officiated by the Indonesian President Joko Widodo, on September 22nd.
Sadly, heartbreaking news befell our brothers and sisters in Palu, Sulawesi, last Friday 28th September. To date the death toll from the earthquake and tsunami has reached 1,300 as UN officials warn that needs are “vast” for both desperate survivors and rescue teams still searching for the victims.
Many disaster relief and aid agencies are on the ground desperately in need of medical care, supplies and assistance to the survivors. As government aid keeps flowing, we can also lend a helping hand. There are many trustworthy foundations organizing funding, please visit: Unicef Indonesia and Yayasan Kita Bisa .
And lastly, we are proud to announce that What’s New Bali, What’s New Jakarta, and What’s New Bandung are now under the one umbrella of www.whatsnewindonesia.com - a milestone celebrating the 12th year of What’s New Jakarta. Thank you for being a part of our journey!
