Indonesia recent reclassification as “investment grade” is expected to lure many foreign investors to Bali’s shores.

In 2012 Bali expects more than Rp. 18 trillion (US$2 billion) in new investments, according to the head of Bali’s Investment Board (BPM), Ida Bagus Made Parwata, quoted by Bisnis Bali on January 2, 2012.

Parwata said that total investment in Bali in 2011 totaled Rp. 15.2 trillion (US$1.68 billion). Most of this new investment was in the tourism and supporting sectors. It’s expected that in 2012 this pattern of investment will continue.

Parwata said efforts will be made to encourage investments in Bali in a more even distribution between Bali’s districts and sectors. Thus far investments have concentrated in the southern regencies of Bandung, Denpasar and Gianyar. He bemoaned the disparity in investment levels between Bali’s South, North and Eastern regions. In order to find a solution to encourage investment in areas outside Bali’s South, Parwata feels the regions seeking these investments must create supporting infrastructures in order to attract investors.

Addressing disparities between various sectors of Bali’s economy, Parwata wants to establish workable synergies between the tourism and farming sectors. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the tourism sectors must be directed towards energizing farming in Bali. The agricultural sector in Bali needs to be ungraded to enable farming products to meet the demands for quality by hotels and restaurants.

Discussing Bali's 2009 Zoning Law (RTRWP), Parwata said the law is not negotiable. Investors who wish to invest in Bali must follow all local regulations, he said, including regulations on building and zoning.
