Acting British Ambassador Rebecca Razavi held a meeting last month with Bali Governor I Made Mangku Pastika to launch the Methanol Poisoning Awareness (MPA) campaign, a new initiative by the British Consulate in Bali. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the danger of methanol in counterfeit alcoholic drinks, and reduce the number of deaths and injuries suffered by foreign and domestic tourists in Indonesia, as a result.

“This campaign underlines the importance of British tourists being aware of the health risks of counterfeit alcohol. No holiday – to anywhere in the world – should end in tragedy. One death due to counterfeit alcohol is one too many. So we will work with the Bali Provincial administration and the many responsible and reputable retailers in Indonesia, to try and eradicate this risk to people’s life and health”, said Razavi.

During the meeting Razavi officially handed the campaign materials to Governor Pastika to symbolize the launch of the campaign. The branded materials will be distributed throughout Bali.!
