Name: Yus Subianto
Occupation: Hotel receptionist
Marital status: Married What can be done to improve Baliâ€™s image?
People should be friendlier with each other than they are now; they should keep their Eastern traditions strong and alive. Like in my religion, Islam, we use the Assalam alaikum greeting. But nowadays people donâ€™t stick with their traditions, and thatâ€™s bead.
Are you satisfied with the current level of security?
Yes, I am. Security is good here, because there is harmony among many religions in Bali. Iâ€™ve seen before that Muslims who are going to Mecca are guarded by pecalang (Balinese security guards). There are no conflicts among religions in Bali, so I think itâ€™s safe here.
Is the central government doing enough to improve Indonesia?
Itâ€™s doing enough, but more needs to be done. Public facilities, for example, are often in a bad state or repair and more care and attention should be paid to things like this.
What are the challenges that lie ahead?
Proving that we are a fully independent and strong country, and able to manage and run our country without any help or advice from other countries.
Whereâ€™s the hottest spot in Bali right now?
