The provincial government of Bali is defending their plans to go ahead with the mega-tourism project - Bali International Park (BIP) – insisting that it is not merely a high-profile prestige project but a necessary part of the development of Bali’s capabilities to address the meeting, incentive conference and exhibition market sector (MICE).
The provincial spokesperson has said the BIP is required as the venue for the Asia-Pacific Economic Summit Conference 2013 (APEC).
Opponents to the BIP project are citing the pre-existing conference centers already in operation in Bali, the over-supply of hotel rooms and the provincial moratorium on new hotel projects the Jimbaran project ignores.
Quoted by Beritabali.com, the spokesman for the province of Bali, Ketut Teneng, said the BIP is not only needed to guarantee the success of APEC Conference but also needed for the future promotion of Bali.
“The construction of the BIP on land covering 250 hectares has been approved by the province of Bali because it does not conflict with the RTRW Zoning law,” explained Teneng.
