(12/2/2011)

Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism and the Creative Economy, Mari Elka Pangestu, paid a visit to Bali on November 30, 2011, to inspect a number of projects connected to the APEC Summit to be held on the island in 2012.

During that inspection visit, she issued a call that completion of the infrastructure projects be accelerated to ensure their completion in time for the 2013 meeting of Asian Pacific nations.

According to Beritabali.com, Pangestu inspected work underway to expand and improve Bali’s airport, preparatory work for the construction of a toll road between Benoa and Tanjung Benoa at Nusa Dua, and the enhancement of the Benoa port facility. The Minister pledged to continually monitor developments for these three projects, brining all pressure to bear to guarantee on-time completion.

During her visit, the newly appointed Minister also paid a call on the Bali International Park (BIP) project in Jimbaran. The massive project covering a 250-hectare lot has been promoted by the central government as essential to the transaction of the 2013 summit but has been the focus of widespread opposition by local environmental groups.

On her visit to the BIP project, the Minister was welcomed by Frans Bambang Siswanto, the chief commissioner and CEO of PT Jimbaran Hijau, respectively, Frans Bambang Siswanto and Putu Agung Prianto. Also in attendance was the Chief of Provincial Tourism (Kadiparda), Ida Bagus Subhisku; the chief (lurah) of the Jimbaran sub-district, and traditional leaders from the surrounding areas.

Pangestu told the press: “Unfortunately, this project, which has been approved by Presidential decree and obtained a recommendation from the governor, is being impeded by permits problems on the Bandung regency level to the point that there are concerns that plans for the 2013 APEC Summit will be disrupted and this will cause damage to the country's image. I will check and ask when the required permits will be issued by the Regent.”
