The Gianyar district of Bali is preparing to implement the provincial smoke-free area regulations in its area by setting up smoking rooms and smoking corners reserved especially for smokers in public areas.

As reported by, during a meeting recently held between the chairman of Bali Child Protection Agency's (LPA) Ni Nyoman Masni and the Regent of Gianyar Anak Agung Bharata it was agreed that the regency would soon promulgate rules on smoke-free areas.

Masni told the press: “I have asked the Regent to quickly realize the smoke-free rules for Gianyar in order that the rules and legal basis are clear. We are not forbidding people to smoke but to regulate smoking in order that the health of non-smokers is not affected.”

Meanwhile, the Bali Chapter of the Association of Indonesian Teachers (PGRI-Bali), represented by Ida Bagus Putu Sudiarta, is also urging the regency of Gianyar to quickly implement the no-smoking zone rule. “We have a rule, but we have no enforcement. If a teachers smokes, who’s to forbid it? We need firm enforcement and supervision,” said Sudiarta.

The Regent of Gianyar, Anak Agung Bharata, said he welcomes the steps being taken to push the promulgation of rules on smoke-free areas in Gianyar. Bharata said the implementation of these rules is important to the health of the public, particularly children.

The Regent continued: “I feel the implementation of no-smoking zones is very good, especially since I am a former heart patient, which means health is everything to me. Wherever there’s smoke it’s bad for public health. I will establish smokers’ corners or smoking areas like you see in Japan. I am committed to the smoke-free-area rules. We will formulate them together.”

The Gianyar Regency will first focus on rules for non-smoking areas in schools, especially grade schools. To this end, he is seeking input from the LPA and the principals of schools in Gianyar.
