Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno has asked businesspeople to consider working from Bali to help revive the resort island's economy, which has been hammered by the pandemic. “I invite businesspeople and professionals to consider working from Bali for two reasons, first is because we can work efficiently while enjoying Bali’s natural beauty and second, we can also help Bali’s tourism and creative industry,” he said in a statement on Friday. The minister, who is currently working from Bali to inspect the tourism industry, said he also invited expatriates in the country to join the campaign while maintaining strict health protocols.
