Returning in 2016 will be the popular food festival, Small Medium Enterprise (SME) Bazaar, and musical performances by national and local artists, International Kite Festival, body painting, and many fun social events to make SVF an unforgettable experience that contribute to Sanur’s reputation as “the happening destination” in Bali.

Also incorporated in the SVF 2016 will be beach cleaning activities, reforestation efforts, baby turtle release, surfing competitions, traditional jukung sailing competitions, fruit and ice carving, cultural parades, a fishing tournament, photo competition, and a golf tournament.

“The festival will always be community driven and celebrates the society, therefore it is truly the iconic event people look forward to every year,” said IB Gede Sidharta Putra, also known as Gusde, the founder of SVF.

Government Lowers Maximum Charge for a Domestic Air Ticket 5%

Domestic airfares in Indonesia have been reduced by 5%.

The ceiling fare set by the Department of Civil Aviation was reduced by 5% in an announcement made by Department spokesperson, Maryati Karma, on Thursday, February 11, 2016.

The government justified the ticket price reduction on the basis of lower fuel costs and the strengthening of the Indonesian Rupiah against the U.S. dollar.

The 5% reduction takes effect from January 28, 2016, and applies to the maximum rate that can be charged on any domestic economy ticket, before the application of sales tax (PPN), passenger service charge and any surcharge.

Sumba Rumbas
Earthquake in West Sumba Felt in Lombok and Bali

An earthquake measuring 6.6 on the Richter scale has struck in West Sumba, East Nusa Tenggara that was felt as far away as Lombok and Bali.

The quake struck at 5:02 pm Bali time on Friday, February 12, 2016,

The State News Agency Antara quotes local residents in Mataram, Lombok as feeling an earthquake sufficiently strong to cause people to run in panic from their houses during a heavy rain.

The quake, however, was not overly strong in Lombok, despite a generalized panic in some areas of the Island located a considerable distance from the epicenter located on the landmass of West Sumba.

The Meteorology, Climate and Geophysics Agency (BKMG) identified the epicenter as located at 9.77 degrees south latitude and 119.34 east longitude.

The earthquake struck at a depth of 10 kilometers.

The earthquake posed no risk of a tsunami in its aftermath.

Power and telecommunications were interrupted briefly by the earthquake in Sumba but were largely back in operation by Saturday, one day after the event.

No reports of injury or significant property damage have been linked to the earthquake.


Encouraging Investment
Government Revises List of Permissible Foreign Investment

The Jakarta Post reports that in an effort to stimulate foreign investment in Indonesia 35 business sectors have been removed from the “negative investment list” while 20 companies have been added to the list.

The new investment list was announced on Thursday, February 11, 2016, in Jakarta.

The changes were revealed by the Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Darmin Nasution, who said the changes would boost the national economy by encouraging both domestic and international investment, while, at the same time, extending protection to small and medium sized businesses.

The new rules allow 100% ownership and direct foreign investment in 35 economic sectors. Included among this category are cold storage, sports centers, film processing labs, crumb rubber industry, warehousing, tourism, e-commerce with a marketplace value above Rp 100 billion, toll road operators, telecom device certification, non-hazardous waste management and raw medicine materials.

Plantation investment covering more than 25 hectares that include a processing plant can now be owned up to 95% by foreigners. Seven types of businesses, including leasing companies, can be owned by foreigners up to a level of 85%.

67% ownership by foreign interests include job training, travel bureaus, golf courses, aviation logistics, health care, private museums, catering, convention and exhibition centers, consulting and construction services above Rp. 10 billion and Telkom providers.

51% ownership by foreigners is allowed in natural tourism management.

32 sectors allow foreign ownership up to 49% that include acupuncture, land transportation and high voltage electric installation.


A Lion Denied
Lion Air Boeing 747 Forced to Return to Bali Base After Being Denied Over Flight Rights by Hong Kong Air Traffic Control

Lion Air flight JT-2633, a Boeing 747-412 aircraft flying from Bali to Harbin, China on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 was made to reverse course and return to Bali when civil aviation authorities in Hong Kong refused overflight saying the aircraft lacked the required permits.

The plane carrying 23 crew and 173 passengers left Bali at 3:02 am and was scheduled to land in Guangzhou at 10:20 am. The pilot reportedly received warning from aviation traffic controllers both before and during the flights that he chose to ignore. As a result, the plane was refused over flight rights, turned back and landed back in Bali at 8:41 am.

The refusal of over flight to the Lion Air flight was confirmed by the manager of the Bali Airport Authority, Trikora Harjo.

Meanwhile, Republika.co.id quotes the public relations manager of the Lion Air Group, Andy M. Saladin, who said the normal flight route between Bali and Harbin did not involve over flight of Hong Kong airspace, but, due to weather conditions on the flight in question, was compelled to fly a somewhat circuitous route.

Because the flight lacked a permit to allow flight in Hong Kong’s airspace, it was required to return to Bali with its original flight crew and passenger complement still on board.

The aircraft was flown by Lion Air Captain Zen Zainal.

Indonesian Air Carriers Unhappy with Government Air Fare Reduction

The secretary general of the Indonesian Air Carrier Association (INACA), Tengku Burhanuddin, is complaining that a decision by the Indonesian government to reduce by 5% the cost of domestic economy air travel will reduce the profit margin of Indonesian air carriers, while also reducing tax revenues for the Indonesian government.

Quoted by NusaBali, said: “What’s clear is that if the upper tariff ceiling is reduced, the value added tax (VAT) paid by airlines will also be less, meaning the State’s income will also be less. So don't be surprised if you see the tax paid by the airline sector is less.”

Saying INACA has not yet had a chance to study the new ruling form the government reducing airfare, he declared his association does not agree with the move to discount airfares.

“But, what are we going to do? The Ministry has issued a regulation, and we will follow it. We have yet to receive a copy of the Ministerial decree. Once we do, we will read it carefully and see what our members have to say,” said Burhanuddin.

The INACA secretary-general cautioned that the government should consider more than merely the cost of aviation fuel and the rupiah exchange rate in deciding the price of air travel. Other factors that should be weighed in considering the cost of air travel are the cost of spare parts denominated in U.S. Dollars.

Burhanuddin admitted the rules reducing the maximum price that can be charged for economy air travel would only be felt by the airlines during peak travel periods when maximum fares come fully into effect.

Garuda Seeking a 50% Market Share
PT Garuda Indonesia is targeting an increase of 10% in consumer demand in 2016.

Quoted by Suara Pembaruan, the CEO of Garuda Indonesia, Arief Wibowo said on Friday, February 12, 2016, that a 10% growth in passenger demand in 2016 would result in 25 million passengers being flown by Garuda and 10 million by its subsidiary Citilink.

Wibowo said the plans for 10% passenger growth might be further augmented by a recent decision by the Government to reduce the maximum price of domestic air travel by 5%.

Garuda Indonesia is also targeting to grab a 50% market share of domestic travel in Indonesia via the addition of new planes, new routes and the operation of a new air base from Pondok Cabe south of Jakarta.

The National Carrier now holds a 44% domestic market share.


Underpass for Baliís Airport
Bali Deputy-Governor: Bali to Build Highway Underpass at Entrance to Islandís Airport

Bali’s deputy-governor I Ketut Sudikerta told Metrobali.com that a new underpass road at the entrance to Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport would soon be built with current discussions underway for the project to form part of this year’s development budget.

When quizzed by reporters, the deputy-governor was unable to cite the cost of the proposed underpass, saying that the Department of Public Works was better able to provide a cost projection.

Sudikerta cautioned the public that once the underpass project commences traffic will be disrupted for an extended period during the construction phase. For this reason, the deputy-governor asked for the public to be patient in confronting traffic delays resulting from the construction work.

Trans Sarbagita Bus System

Speaking on the same occasion, Sudikerta revealed that the Trans Sarbagita mass-transit bus system was undergoing a thorough review, saying the system using 50-passenger buses was widely considered not viable, with smaller buses of 25–passenger better suited to the level of the demand and the size of Bali’s roads.

Sudikerta added: “We will match the existence of the buses in accordance with the road system, then we will increase the number of buses and the distances they serve so they can operate on time. This must be done by the Government for the sake of the people.”


Too Close for Comfort
Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air Reported in ďNear MissĒ Incident Over West Bali

Widely reported in the Indonesian press is a purported “near miss” of two Boeing 737s flown Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air in the skies over Jembrana, West Bali of 2:00 pm on Wednesday, February 10, 2016.

According to Metrobali.com, Garuda GA 340 was flying from Surabaya to Denpasar while Lion Air JT 960 was on route from Badung to Denpasar when both planes violated minimum standards for aircraft spacing whilst in flight.

Denying that any violation occurred, the head of air navigation at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, Maskon Humawan, said that the two airplanes, instead, experienced “vertical separation less than the required minimum.” Adding: “It’s not true to say that the planes were going to collide. What happened was an occurrence of the vertical distance between the two aircraft failing to meet flight minimums.”

In the end, Humawan admitted: “The minimal (vertical distance) is 1,000 feet. In the incident the height was 700 feet.” Nonetheless, the horizontal separation between the two airplanes was 5 nautical miles. Humawan added, “This means the aircraft were still safe.”

The close proximity of the aircraft made the anti-collision warning system of the two aircraft to sound, warning that they were flying with less than minimum safe separation.

Saying he was unsure where the news of a “near miss” situation originated, Humawan said that in rainy conditions it is not unusual for as many as 30 airplanes to be stacked over Bali waiting for clearance to land.

At the time of the incident between the Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air flights there were 12 airplanes in holding patterns waiting for landing clearance form Air Traffic Control.

Flight records show that at 2:27 pm local time GA 340 was flying in a northerly direction at 16,300 feet when it began to descend at 612 feet per minute at a speed of 501 kilometers per hour. At the same time JT 960 was flying to the south at a height of 15,900 feet when it began a descent at 512 feet per minute at a speed of 524 kilometers per hour. Reports suggest the two aircraft would have collided except for a last minute turn to the left by both pilots.

Passengers on board both aircraft reported the close encounter. The Garuda pilot reportedly said the Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) warning device in his aircraft sounded causing him to take evasive action. At the closest moment, the two airplanes were on a collision course and were separated by only 3 kilometers, meaning they were less than 10 seconds away from a possible catastrophic collision.

International flight rules stipulate planes must have a vertical separation of at least 1,000 feet and a horizontal spacing of 5.5 kilometers. Anything less than this qualifies as a “near miss” scenario.

Following the near miss JT 960 landed at Bali’s airport at 3:01 pm, while GA 340 diverted to Juanda airport in Surabaya to wait for the weather to improve. GA 340 eventually departed Surabaya at 3:26 pm landing in Bali at 4:59 pm.


Thereís Always Room for Jero . . . in Prison
Court Hand Balinese Former Minister Light Sentence of 4 Years in Prison as Prosecutors Prepare to Appeal.

The Special Corruption Court in Jakarta has sentenced former Minister of Energy and Natural Resources and Minister of Tourism and Culture Jero Wacik to four years in prison for the corrupt misuse of operational expenses and for soliciting and receiving kickbacks.

The State News Agency Antara reports that the Bali-born Minister received a sentence that was less than half of what was demanded by State Prosecutors who sought 9 years behind bars.

Prosecutors also originally asked the presiding panel of judges to fine Wacik Rp. 300 million and him compel  to pay damages to the State amounting to Rp. 18.7 billion. However, in response, presiding Judge Sumpeno fined Wacik only Rp. 150 million and ordered him to return merely  Rp. 5 billion in pilfered State funds. In ordering the lesser amounts, the presiding judge cited the fact that his Wacik’s wife was undergoing cancer treatment and Wacik has a daughter for whom he is providing a college education.

Mystified by both the Court’s lenient ruling and its non-judicial reasoning, anti-corruption prosecutors told Kompas.com that they would file an appeal against the light sentence handed down to Wacik. Prosecutor Dody Sukmono said on Thursday, February 11, 2016, that the decision of the Court did not reflect the public's sense of justice.

While all the corruption charges against Wacik were proven before the Court, Prosecutors feel the 9-year prison term demanded for Wacik and compensation more closely approach the amounts he defrauded  the Nation.

The court found that Jero Wacik had embezzled Rp. 7 billion in ministerial operational funds to pay for personal expenses while Tourism Minister from 2008 until 2011 and a further Rp. 1 billion while Energy Minister from 2011 until 2014. The Court heard how the monies were used, among others, to buy concert tickets for his daughters, designer handbags for his wife and weekly trips to the a massage parlor for Wacik.

Wacik also was found to have used his office to coerce funds from private businesses connected to his ministerial posts.

The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
Harley Davidson Dealerships Bid Farwell to Indonesia

High import taxes and a weak Indonesian Rupiah have caused PT Mabua Harley-Davidson to relinquish it agency license as the sole dealer of the Harley-Davidson brand of motorcycles in Indonesia.

As reported by The Jakarta Post, the continuing decline of the Indonesian Rupiah against the U.S. Dollar and steep increases in sales, luxury and import taxes have priced the large Harley-Davidson motorcycles beyond the reach of most local purchasers.

Djonnie Rahmat, the president director of PT Mabua Harley-Davidson, said on Friday, February 12, 2016, "We deeply regret to announce that PT Mabua Harley-Davidson and PT Mabua Motor Indonesia will not extend their agency licenses starting from Dec. 31, 2015."

Service support for Harley Davidson motorcycles will continue from the PT Marbua outlets.

A 2013 Finance Minister decision decree tripled import tariffs to 7.5%. The next year, the government applied a luxury tax of 125% on the sale of the Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Then in 2015, another tax of 5% was imposed on bike with more than 500 cc capacity and another decree from the Finance Ministry increased the import duty on big bikes from 30% to 40%.

Continuing, Djonnie Rahmat said: “The total amount of taxes for importing a big bike has increased by up to 300 percent. This has not yet included the costs involved in making license plates and certificates. Those factors have caused the market to lose interest.”

PT Mabua Harley-Davidson operates nine outlets including five stores in Jakarta and four in Denpasar, Medan, Semarang and Surabaya.


Last Ditch Failure
South African Dies In Motorcycle Accident in North Kuta

A 42-year-old South African tourist, Gerhard Engel Brecht, was discovered dead in a roadside ditch on Jalan Raya Batu Boleng area of Canggu, North Kuta on Friday, February 12, 2016.

A morning jogger spotted a Honda Vario motorcycle in a drainage ditch that, after closer examination, was found to be on top of the body of the South African.

The motorcycle and the body of the South African were discovered opposite the La Dunia Restaurant.

The motorcycle suffered damage to its front end in the collision with the ditch.

Brecht’s body was found with a number of injuries to his face and head.

Police theorize that the accident that killed the man occurred the previous night.


Cigarette Lobby 1: City of Denpasar 0
Cigarette Industry Thumbs its Nose at Municipality of Denpasar

Efforts by the Denpasar Enforcement Agency (Satpol PP Denpasar) to enforce laws against public cigarette advertising have been frustrated by the willful actions of the cigarette companies in possible collaboration with local authorities.

As reported by Balidiscovery.com, Satpol PP officers forcibly dismantled and removed large billboard advertising Marlboro Cigarettes on Thursday, February 4, 2016 on Jalan By Pass Ngurah Rai in the Suwung area of Denpasar adjacent to the Pertamina Gas Station.

Just 8 days later, however, a new billboard for the cigarettes appeared in the same location, leading many to believe this slap in the face to the Denpasar administration was delivered with the artful collaboration of certain figures in the municipal administration of Bali’s capital city.

As reported by DenPost, the initial removal was seen as a long-delayed decision to enforce a long neglected 2013 Mayorial decree banning cigarette advertising on main roads in Bali.

DenPost also discovered illegal cigarette billboards for A-Mild Cigarettes on Jalan Pulau Bingin in South Denpasar.

Mumís, the Word
Baliís Day of Silence Coming Wednesday, March 9. 2016

Nyepi – Bali’s traditional day of Silence that ushers in a New Year falls on Wednesday, March 9, 2016.

On the Bali-Hindu calendar that’s: New Year’s Day 1 Saka 1938.

Preceded by wild street parades parading ogoh-ogoh papier mâché statues built by local banjars battle each other on main roads and intersections. As the sun rises on the New Year, blurry-eyed revelers set their ogoh-ogoh afire and head home for a day of silent contemplation and hangover recovery.

In accordance with age-old rules, the entire Island will come to a complete standstill starting from sunrise on Wednesday, March 9 and extending until sunrise the following day. Homes will be shuttered, traffic banned from traveling on all roads, the airport will shut down, cruise ports go silent, and guests together with supporting staff will be sequestered behind the closed gates of all Bali hotels.

Devote Balinese-Hindus observe four prohibitions for 24-hours refraining from: work and other activities (amati karya); lighting fires or lamps (amati geni); venturing forth from their homes (amati Lelungan); and earthly pleasure (amati Lelanguan).

The Island that is home to 4 million people and thousands of visiting guests becomes a “ghost town” – with silence enforced by police and pecalang – traditionally dressed security teams from local villages, who patrol and strictly ensure no one violates the peace by venturing onto the roads, no visible lights are shining from dwellings that could be seen from the outside, and no one is creating and audible amount of noise.

Local broadcasts also stop during the 24-hour period of silence with international cable and satellite broadcasts terminating services during this period.

Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport and all seaports in Bali including Benoa, Celukan Bawang, Gilimanuk, Tanah Ampo and Padangbai will be closed during the day of silence.

Circuit Breaking
YLPK Chides PT Telkom for Poor Quality of Service to the Public in Bali

Beritabali.com reports that the Indonesian Consumers Agency (YLPK) is accusing the state-owned telecommunication company PT Telkom of failing to provide good levels of service to the public.

YLPK cites the numerous reports from consumers who complain that PT Telkom is providing poor telecommunications services and support in Bali.

The director of YLPK-Bali, I Putu Armaya, said his office receives as many as 20 complaints each week regarding PT Telkom services, the majority dealing with it Indihome Internet service.

“Customer who have become customers of Indihome receive maximum service for only 2 – 3 month, after that, the level of service becomes very disappointing for the consumer. The Internet service is not good, including its television connections that are also problematic. In fact, customers are paying between Rp. 400,000 to Rp. 500,000 per month, but the service is disappointing,” said Armaya on Sunday, February 14, 2016.

Armaya also cited complaints that many telephone lines are dead or not connected. Reports and complaints to PT Telkom confront staff indifference, long delays and seemingly endless complications in an effort to get a telephone line to work.

The YLPK Chief also noted the extreme cynicism of PT Telkom employees who snidely invites customers to "simply disconnect" if they are unhappy with the level of service provided. Armaya reminded the telecommunications service that the law obliges them to provide clear information to the public on their services and products. A failure to do this, he warned, can carry penalties of 5 years in prison and large fines for PT Telkom.

The chief of consumer protection in Bali urged PT Telkom to address the shortcomings in its current communication infrastructure before seeking new customers and selling new services to the pubic.

Continuing, Armaya warned that if PT Telkom does not raise its game in the services it provides to the public, his office is prepared to help coordinate a class action suit against the State-owned telecommunications company.

A spokesman for PT Telkom refused comment when contacted by the press, urging the reporter to seek comment form a higher level of the Company’s management.
