Major Environmental Meeting for Bali

National Conference on Sustainability for Bali in June.

(12/9/2002) Bali has been chosen as the site for a national conference on environmental sustainability.

The meeting, announced by Indonesia's State Minister for the Environment, Nabiel Makarim, is set to commence on June 5, 2003, and will be attended by representatives of the Indonesian work force, such as fishermen, foresters, and farmers, as well as by members of the national cabinet. President Megawati Soekarnoputri and Vice President Hamzah Haz are also expected to attend.

The national environmental summit, intended to map out how the Indonesian economy can operate on an environmentally self-sustaining basis, is a follow up to the World Summit on Sustainable Development held in South Africa earlier this year.
