“In 2014 the Miss World contest is going to be held in Bali,” Pastika said.
According to Pastika, the resort island will also a host a number of other international events such as the 2011 ASEAN Summit and the 2013 APEC Conference.
Pastika used the opportunity to promote tourism in Bali by saying Bali had already gained another nickname.
“Bali is known as the Island of Gods and Island of Peace and Democracy, now Bali is the island of Love. Julia Roberts, in the movie Eat, Pray and Love found true love in Bali,” he said.
Pastika's persistence in promoting Bali earned him praise from Vice President Boediono.
“If you need a marketing director, Pak Governor is the right man. He has the knack for marketing,” Boediono said.
