(6/8/2014)

The Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that the strong anti-smoking stance taken by governor Made Mangku Pastika has earned the Island’s governor a number of awards.

Governor Pastika received the accolades at a ceremony marking World No Tobacco Day at the Weddhi Budaya Art Center in East Denpasar

The governor also received the following awards:

  • The Indonesian Health Ministry recognized the Governor for drafting and implementing no-smoking law bylaws first introduced in 2011.
  • The Leadership Tuberculosis Control Award from the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease.
  • The Child Protection Warrior through Tobacco Control Award from the National Commission of Child Protection.
  • Honorary appointment as a member of the Public Health Scholars Association (IAKMI).
Indonesia’s Deputy Minister for Health Ali Gufron presented the awards to the Pastika, saying: “The Bali governor has shown a determined commitment to implement this crucial bylaw, including by taking stern measures against those who smoke in hospitals or health institutions."

In accepting the awards Pastika pledged to work harder to make Bali into a smoking-free zone. Adding: “I think there has been enough socialization. Now, the most important thing is law enforcement because in the bylaw the sanctions are very clear.”

Laws introduced by the Governor ban smoking in hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, places of worship, healthcare facilities, schools, playgrounds, traditional and modern markets, transportation terminals, airports, government offices and public transportation.

Advertising of tobacco products is now limited in Bali and those caught smoking in prohibited areas can be fined Rp. 50,0000 (US$4.40).

Pastika was also praised for the courageous stance he took in forcing the Inter-Tabac Conference to cancel their planned convention in Bali February 27-28, 2014 because it violated rules on smoking in public places and the promotion of tobacco products in Bali.
