TRIBUNBATAM.id - The Province of the Bangka-Belitung Islands has been appointed as the host of the G20 international event on 7-9 September 2022.  

The Belitung Regency Government considers this to be a momentum as well as a benchmark for the revival of 'Bumi Laskar Pelangi' tourism. 

This is because Belitung has never previously been the location of an international event, even though it has been designated as the Tanjung Kelayang Special Economic Zone and one of the 10 new Balis. 

The G20 will have a tremendous impact on Belitung's image.

Because, this is a means of proving that Belitung is able to host an event of that level.

Appointments are made suddenly

The appointment of Belitung as the host of the G20 was done suddenly. Unlike Bali and Jakarta.

Therefore, the Belitung Regency government is optimistic that it will undertake the improvement of local infrastructure. 

Including fixing the runway which is estimated to cost up to IDR 50 billion, for the safety of visitors.

In late August, it is estimated that the airport runway will be finished. Longer, smoother and wider than Depati Amir Airport.
