The Nirwana Bali Resort was recently acknowledged as being the most prominent taxpayer in the Tabanan region of Bali.
Following a meeting with Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism, the outgoing Chairman of the Indonesian Tourism Development Association (AKPI), Mr. Hiramsyah Sambudhy Thaib pointed to the fundamental role played by tourism zones in the growth and development of Indonesia's tourism industry.
Citing as an example the Nirwana Bali Resort development located on Bali's western shore and owned by Indonesia's Bakrie Group, he revealed that up to 55% of all local tax revenues for the Tabanan Regency are generated by the Resort complex. According to Heramsyah, this conclusively proved the ability of coordinated tourism development projects to boost local tax revenues.
The newly elected chairman of AKPI is Jan Arifin of the Lombok Tourism Development Corporation.
