Rector of Unud Prof. A.A Raka Sudewi in his speech said that a pandemic is a global event, but the handling of this pandemic really depends on our local capabilities. We see an opportunity behind this pandemic, where 35% of severe covid sufferers experience post op covid syndrome or long haul covid syndrome. Post covid syndrome sufferers not only feel the impact of pain at the physical level but also psychologically, socially, financially and spiritually. Through this post covid recovery program, we optimize existing tourism facilities, improve human resource competencies, especially with new normal adaptations and collaborate with health practitioners in a quality and sustainable action movement.

The implementation of this national seminar is our real support from Udayana University for the central government and local government programs in developing Bali with the spirit of Nangun Sat Kerti Lokha Bali.

Deputy Governor of Bali Dr. Ir. Tjokorda Oka A.A. Sukawati, M.Si. On this occasion, he said that the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic was extraordinary, especially in the tourism sector which is the mainstay sector of the Province of Bali. For this reason, the government together with the Balinese people, especially tourism business actors, are constantly trying to get out of this Covid-19 pandemic. The Deputy Governor of Bali welcomed the efforts of the Faculty of Medicine at Udayana University to hold this national seminar which certainly made it one of the efforts to accelerate Bali's economic recovery.

Minister of Tourism & Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia Dr. H. Sandiaga Salahudin Uno, B.B.A., M.B.A on this occasion gave his appreciation for the implementation of seminar activities that combine nature and culture, where medical tourism can be based on culture and local wisdom.
