The Regent Giri Prasta gave his highest appreciation to Bali TV for implementing the Bintang Radio & Television (BRTV) program, which was extraordinary. “Moreover, this BRTV program has existed since 2004,” said Regent Giri Prasta when asked as a resource person at the virtual BRTV 2021 event held by Bali TV in the Living Room of the Badung Regent’s Office, Puspem, Sunday (12/9).
Bintang Radio and Television (BRTV) is a singing talent search event for Bali teruna that has been started since 2004. Participants from Badung who will perform at this Sunday’s Concert, I Gede Yoga Valentino and Ni Putu Wintya Tresna Dewi, with host Epa Jayantika and Anggi. “In this era of pandemic, all joints are affected, including art. Back in 2016, I was elected. I participated in the success of this program and it can be seen from the 556 sekaa truna in Badung. We always provide enlightenment in providing vocal art,” he said.
According to the Regent Giri Prasta, this talent search event must master several things, first mastering the Balinese language is mandatory, because it is in Bali to foster love, and strengthen identity. Both Indonesian because we are NKRI, and English, Japanese and other languages are enough to learn. “Especially for our children I Gede Yoga Valentino and Ni Putu Wintya Tresna Dewi, congratulations you are the ambassadors of Badung Regency, let’s do it well, good luck,” he said.
His party always fully supports it, because they already have the principle, the Balinese people especially the people of Badung Regency are obliged to be the hosts in their own homes, including Small and Medium Micro Enterprises (MSMEs). Now is the time to use technology, so we will show this in the marketplace by collaborating with marketplaces such as Tokopedia, Bukalapak, Shope and others.
In this pandemic era, his party will provide a stimulus to SMEs in Badung Regency at the end of this year. This is to stimulate the people’s economy. The Covid-19 pandemic has an economic impact on the economy in Bali Province, especially in Badung Regency, which relies on the tourism sector from hotel and restaurant taxes. “We in Badung have 108% been vaccinated, because we have also vaccinated foreign tourists who have received recommendations from the embassy or their country,” he said.
The problem of handling 3T (Tracing, Testing and Treatment) is carried out based on the village and has prepared oxygen, even has a Central Isolation place (Isoter). “Today in the hospital, our BOR is only 30 people and Isoter is just under 30%. Hopefully next week we can go down to level 3 and next week to level 2 and we can propose together with the Governor to be able to lower the level and be able to open tourism as a whole. We also provide Direct Cash Assistance (BLT) that is affected to the entire community of Badung Regency outside the assistance of the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Ministry of Villages. Hopefully Bali TV will continue to educate Balinese manners and always be in the air,” he concluded. (BTN/bud)
