STABLISHING a close relationship should not be made in a hurry and without ethics. We must know one’s cultural background to which we will establish the relationship. Mutual understanding, respect and appreciation are some important basis in developing a lasting relationship. “Perhaps, more precisely, it is the heart-to-heart relationship,” said the owner of Bali Yuai Mansion, IGK Pujawan, who had good relations for many years with influential people in Fukuoka, Japan. “In Japanese language, such a relationship is known as kokoro to kokoro, meaning heart-to heart,” said one of the tourism figures who also once led the organization of the Indonesian Tour Guides Association (HPI) of Bali Chapter not long ago. From the mode of this relationship, several important commitments had been made and developed mainly in the field of education between Bali and Fukuoka. And some members of Bali’s delegates had already had an opportunity to make a visit to Fukuoka, including the Denpasar Mayor I.B. Rai Mantra some time ago.




Pujawan, who is also one of the boards of the Denpasar Education Council, then explained that the visit had resulted in a more serious relationship involving the development of education in Bali that would be assisted by Japan. Besides, both parties would continue to maintain the commitment of relationship leading to a (BTN/055) more actual measure. B N

In this photo taken on Friday, Dec. 31, 2010, the financial skyline is lit while the newly opened Marina Bay Sands casinos, left, tower over the bay area as they await New Year’s day countdown. Singapore’s two huge casino resorts, Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa, which together cost more than $10 billion to build, are the crowning jewels of a decade-long effort to diversify the island’s economy toward services such as tourism and away from low-end manufacturing. The casinos have created more than 20,000 jobs, helped attract record visitors and fueled 14.7 percent economic growth last year, likely the second-highest in the world behind Qatar, the Trade and Industry Ministry said Monday, Jan. 3, 2011.
