Bali as a major tourism destination with a unique world culture must be protected by special laws that will foster cultural sustainability.

This idea was advanced by Paulus Yohanes Sumino, a Member of Commission of the National House of Representatives (DPR-RI) during a focus group discussion at the campus of Udayana University on September 18, 2012.

Quoted by Beritabali.com, Paulus said: “Bali needs protection under special laws because of the island’s unique character. Bali needs special attention and special regulations. There is a need for specific laws that will protect Bali’s culture and natural environment, permitting the culture of Bali to strengthen.”

Sumino’s believes that without special protection for the Balinese and their culture, the people of the Island would succumb to the intense pressure of economic survival.

“For instance, the Maori tribe of New Zealand. They pursued economic advancement by aligning with the English and Europeans. As a result, over a period of 150 years the Maori had forgotten their own cultural identity. Now they are only beginning to rediscover their cultural identity,” explained Paulus, who played a role in securing autonomy for the people of Papua.

Paulus says that that through the protection afforded by special laws will preserve Bali’s unique character.

Concluding, Paulus said: “The fact is that Bali needs special handling. If Bali loses its identity, then Indonesian will also lose a part of its national identity.”
