(9/9/2013)

Tens of members of the Airport Traders Association (P2B)  at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport marched on the office of Bali’s governor on Thursday, September 5, 2013.

 
The group, comprised of traders working shop spaces in Bali’s airport were received by the deputy-governor of Bali, Ketut Sudikerta.
 
The P2B members were seeking support from the provincial government in order to secure the right to carry on their respective businesses at the newly renovated airport.
 
“We came to meet the Governor and were received by the Deputy-Governor. We hope the government will help us obtain a clarification on our fate at the airport,” said the spokesman for P2B, Nyoman Suharta, quoted in Bisnis Bali.
 
The members of P2B are complaining that they have received no formal written assurances  as a follow up to the verbal promise made of places of trade at the airport in past negotiations with the airport’s management, Angkasa Pura.

The traders, who claim their membership is composed of “98 percent” Balinese, are seeking protection and support from the government.
 
“We asked the Deputy-governor to protect local traders. We represent ‘local genius.’ Big businesses are trying to evict us from the airport,” said Suharta.
 
Continuing his complaint, Suharta said that Angkasa Pura has made promises in person and via the media to P2B but have yet to give any firm commitment on new trading places even though the opening of the newly renovated airport is just weeks away.

Larger Distruptions Threatened
 
P2B is threatening that if no written confirmation is received by the group before September 9, the grouping will stage large-scale demonstrations on September 13, 2013.
 
“We will appear with our full force. We will close the access to the airport and we are prepared to face all the consequences,” said Suharta when answering questions from the press regarding possible police resistance to the threatened demonstrations.
 
The traders claim the new tender terms for space in the renovated airport were too stringent and outside the capabilities of the members of P2B who have worked for years at the airport. 5 members of the 121-members P2B did, in fact, follow the tender process for space in the new terminal. However, none the five P2B members managed to pas the tendering process.
 
P2B claims the tendering process was not transparent.
