Four Major Events Held, Expected to Have An Impact on Improving the Economy

Mataram (Suara NTB) The Mandalika Circuit will hold four major events this year. The world-class motorsport is expected to have an impact on improving the economy. People are encouraged to more creatively read opportunities as a source of income.

The four sporting events are World Superbike (WSBK), MotoGP, Shell Eco-Marathon and most recently the Asia Road Racing Championship. WSBK will be the opening series which will be held March 3-5, 2023.

The Mayor of Mataram, H. Mohan Roliskana, said that the holding of the world-class vehicle race was a sporting event that brought benefits to the city and the wider community. The Mataram City Government has learned from previous experiences during MotoGP and World Superbike events that have an economic impact on many sectors.

The four events held at the Mandalika Circuit in Central Lombok Regency will be a challenge for the region to evaluate the weak or lacking side of the previous year's implementation, both in terms of services, accommodation, infrastructure, and the culinary sector. "Our commitment can better prepare all the needs of visitors who will watch MotoGP," he explained.

From the aspect of transportation and accommodation, it is not adequate because the audience is not accommodated. This means that there are quite a lot of other options, not only in Mataram City, but you can also stay in West Lombok, Central Lombok, and the closest area to the location of the activity. According to the Mayor is important in the city to be the concern accommodation will be maximized and the previous issues become a record to be addressed again. "We will communicate with the hotel manager earlier to prepare even more," he said.

In addition, the Mataram City Government will also add attractive activities so that guests do not only stay overnight and then the event is completed directly home. He hopes that the economic impact will be stronger because tourists stay longer to spend their money. In addition, the community has also learned and been adaptive to previous sporting events.

The government only provides encouragement for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to read the opportunity to show their creativity, especially the culinary sector, souvenirs and other accessories that can be used as souvenirs for tourists who attend to watch the world-class motorcycle race. "Security and order are the top priorities of the government not alone but with the TNI and Polri," Mohan said.
