One Island Tourism Management Concept for Bali

Opposition Growing to Ministerial Decree Moving Regulation of Tourism Industry from the Provincial to Regional Level.

(7/17/2011)

The Chief of the Bali Tourism Authority (Kadiparda), I.B. Kade Subhisku, fears that the implementation of 13 new regulations recently announced by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism have the potential of upturning three existing provincial regulations in Bali dealing with guide services, tour and travel services, and water sports.

As reported by Bisnisbali.com, the new regulations from the Ministry will move the authority to grant licenses and regulate services from the provincial governments to the regency/municipal administrations.

The Ministerial regulations No. PM.85/HK.501/MKP/2010, No. PM.92/HK.501/MKP/2010 and PM.96/HK.501/MKP/2010 address respectively registration of travel and agencies, registration of guide services and water sports services. These new regulations should have taken effect from November 16, 2010 but have been delayed until December 2011 to permit smoother implementation.

In the future, the Bali Tourism Authority will no longer issue permits in these three areas with its new role to act only as a monitor of these sectors of the tourism industry, and as mediators should disputes and misunderstanding arise.

New Rules Criticized

The Coordinator for the Indonesian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (ASITA) for Bali, West Nusa Tenggara and East Tenggara, Bagus Sudibya, says the implementation of the 13 new ministerial decrees will cause havoc in Bali’s continuing efforts to introduce a single island tourism management concept. Sudibya says Bali needs a more holistic approach to the management of tourism by centralizing regulation on a provincial basis.

The tourism leader who operates both hotels and a travel agency, said the effort to retain control of tourism at the provincial level in Bali must be championed and secured in Jakarta in order to prevent another possible major misstep for Bali tourism. Saying that Bali is a very small province, equal in size to some regencies in Java, he contends that it only makes sense to centralize the management of its tourism assets.

As a first step Bali must seek to have the Minister’s decree repealed as it applies to Bali. Sudibya called on the regencies and municipalities of Bali to agree to surrender the management of Bali’s tourism to the provincial government. Secondly, the provincial government of Bali and the regencies/municipalities need to be of one voice in calling for a law guaranteeing special autonomy to Bali in the regulation of its culture and tourism.
