When Balinese children attend school they learn the Balinese language, but they also learn traditional Balinese games such as Gala Gala, Tajog, and Bakiak/Terompah. However, the concern is that these traditional games are going by the wayside and thus an important part of Balinese culture could be lost. It seems these days Playstation and other video games are becoming more popular than traditional games. In fact, in some schools the children are no longer taught these traditional games.
Bali has been selected as the venue for the 2013 APEC Summit. This should come as no surprise since Bali has successfully hosted numerous international events. The APEC Summit will focus on promoting investment in infrastructure, and providing the appropriate tools to small and medium business for economic development.
