The iconic Lotus Pond of Bali’s Garuda Wisnu Kenaca (GWK) Cultural Park has been selected as the venue for the cultural welcome dinner for at least 20 heads of state and related delegations expected to attend the G20 summit in Bali in late November 2022 .
As quoted by NusaBali.com, Andre Prawiradisastra, Head of Events and Marketing Communications of GWK, told the press on Saturday, August 20, 2022 that the preparations for the prestigious November dinner have reached the level of 80%.
Among the items being prepared for the G20 Summit Dinner at GWK in November is the renovation of the front gate, creating new steep access roads. Andrew confirmed these three main preparatory steps with other projects, including the installation of CCTV surveillance and the improvement of lighting in public areas.
Various ministries and agencies are helping GWK with the preparation for the big event. This includes the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing. Andre added: “Everything should be ready in September. But in August, President Joko Widodo can come to check that everything is clean and ready.”
Andre warned the public to expect the popular GWK Cultural Park to be closed three days before the event, November 16-18, 2022, and 2 days after the gala dinner.
