Bisnis Bali reports that Rp. 1.2 billion (US$129,000) allocated for the construction of a yacht jetty on Bina Ria Beach in Lovina, North Bali is considered to be inadequate and, by some sources, a "lost cause."
Made Kardika, a local resident in Kalibukuk, Lovina, told the press, “The building of the jetty will be difficult to materialize, bearing in mind that the budget proposed in 2006 came to Rp. 7 billion (US$752,700) for a pier 50 meters long.”
That amount of money requires the involvement of Buleleng’s regent Agus Suradnyana and vice-regent Nyoman Sutjidra to seek the additional funding to allow the jetty to be built.
Kardika, who is active in project to develop tourism projects in Lovina, supported the project for a yacht jetty while serving as a member of the region House of Representatives in 2006.
Supported by the Buleleng Tourism Service (Disbudpar), the plan for a yacht jetty in Lovina has received an allocation of Rp. 1.2 billion from the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy.
Representing only a portion of the funding needed to construct a yacht jetty, the Buleleng Tourism Office is seeking support from the regency to complete a project needed to provide infrastructure support to “Sail Indonesia” – a yearly program in which hundreds of sialing yachts visit North Bali.
