Bisnis.com reports that the Bali International Park (BIP) project, with an estimated value of Rp. 2.7 trillion (US$2.8 billion), will not go ahead due to protests and inability to obtain the necessary permits, at least not in time for the APEC Conference in 2013.

The huge hotel and villa complex on Bali’s Ungasan peninsula was originally promoted by Jakarta officials as essential to the success of the APEC Summit planned for Bali in late 2013. Locally, the project was vehemently opposed by environmentalist and others who claimed Bali neither needed not could environmentally sustain the proposed mega-project.

BIP Project to be Relaunched?

Ida Bagus Subhisku, the chief of the Bali Provincial Tourism Service, however, continues to described the BIP project as an active initiative of the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy intended to accelerate the Balinese tourism economy.

Subhisku told the press that the BIP project that forms part of the policies of the Committee for the Acceleration and Expansion of the Development of the Indonesian Economy (KP3EI) and as such would continue to move forward, even if the BIP project is not part of the overall plan for APEC 2013. “The BIP will be prepared for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) after the APEC Meeting,” said Subhisku on November 13, 2012.

He said the project is still under review as a preparatory step to obtaining the required permits and licenses. Subhisku said the sole right to grant a license to the BIP project rests with the Badung Regency administration.

The chairman of the legislation section of Badung’s House of Representative (DPRD), Wayan Puspa Negara said he supports the BIP project as necessary to develop the MICE market in Bali.

Plans for the BIP calls for facilities able to handle 20,000 people in its plenary hall, exhibition space and dining areas that, if they materialize, will become the largest MICE venue in Bali.

Puspa Negara said he left the final decision on the project to the Badung administration to work together with PT Jimbaran Hijau to process and obtain the needed permits for the BIP.
