Regents across Bali are being urged by the governor to impose a moratorium on the opening of all new supermarkets or chain convenience stores

Beritabali.com reports that the widening network of convenience stores and supermarkets, even in otherwise remote regions of Bali, are seen as a threat to traditional markets.

Governor Made Mangku Pastika told the press on Thursday, August 25, 2011, that the regents across Bali do not need to await a letter from his office to impose a moratorium. But, if the regents were seeking a legal basis for the moratorium he was prepared to issue an instruction covering the proposed moratorium.

“If you really need a circular instruction from me, then I will make the circular. However, the regents and mayors should be able to take the initiative on their own. Just stop giving out new permits; nothing will be lost (in doing so). Such things do not need to be done by only the governor. That’s ridiculous,” said the Pastika.

Pastika said he hope that not only would a moratorium be imposed on supermarkets, but that steps would be taken to revitalize traditional markets. Such revitalization is needed to enhance the attractiveness of using traditional markets by the public.
