When Raung Roars Bali Listens
Angkasa Pura and BMKG Continue to Monitor Weather Conditions and Volcanic Activity from Mount Raung

As reported by Beritadewata.com, the Meteorological, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) in Denpasar, Bali and the managers of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport are jointly undertaking continuous observations on wind conditions influencing the movement of volcanic ash ejected from Mount Raung in East Java.
 
While the lion’s share of the ash expelled to a height of 2,400 meters from the mountain has landed in 5 districts (kecematan) in East Java. Further afield, the ash has disrupted on an on and off basis flight operations from Bali’s and Surabaya’s airports together with at least three other regional airports in Indonesia.
 
The co-general manager of Balli’s airport authority, PT Angkasa Pura, IGN Ardita said observations in connection with the volcano and wind conditions are conducted once every six hours in collaboration with BMKG.
 
“We continue to make observations based on data from BMKG. Wind forecasts predicting wind direction are the main focus of BMKG in monitoring developments surrounding Mount Raung and the resulting impact on flight safety,” explained Ardita.

Meanwhile, air controllers in Indonesia are monitoring closely the condition of flight corridors.

Aircraft operating to and from Bali’s airport are being inspected by aviation experts on the ground for any signs of potentially hazardous encounters with volcanic ash.

Duty Calls!
Indonesia Introduces Dramatic Increases in Customís Duty Rates on a Wide Range of Imported Items

Reuter’s reports that Indonesia has introduced steep increases on import tariffs charged for food, clothes and a range of consumer goods that economists say will fuel inflation and missed its desired target of providing “help” to domestic producers.

The increase in import tariffs is being defended by government officials as “not protectionist” and as being introduced in a period characterized by a weak rupiah and sluggish economic growth.

Indonesian officials insist the higher tariffs are not protectionist measures, but merely based on national interest and consistent with World Trade Organization rules.

Suahasil Nazara from the Indonesian Finance Ministry’s fiscal policy office defended the increased tariffs as “meant to push local industry.”

Under the new import duties now in place imported cars will pay a tax of 50% increasing from 10-40%; Imported tea and coffee duties have increased from 5% to 20%; while imported meats must now pay a tax of 30% - six time the previous duty of 5%.

Certain to impact the tourism industry, imported alcoholic beverages are now subject to a duty of 150%. In the past, a flat Rp. 125,000 per liter was applied on imported alcoholic beverages.

Economist are criticizing the new tax, saying it does nothing the address underlying problems such as red tape and a failing infrastructure. Experts say Indonesia should take steps to reduce operating costs for local businesses rather than apply high tariffs. Moreover, while local manufacturers will gain market share, the Indonesian consumer will be left paying the bill.

Also affected by higher import duties will be food and beverage, clothes, condoms, carpet and air conditioners.

Experts say the increased duty levels will fuel inflation that rose to 7.26% in June.

Meanwhile the Indonesian rupiah is trading at a 17-year low will make imported items expensive to Indonesian consumers even before the addition of the new high tariff rates.


High Prices for an Ailing Infrastructure
Villagers in North Bali Call on West Bali National Park to Repair Pier at Crossing Point for Menjangan Island

Once again, the Government’s desire to apply high taxes and admission charges is not keeping pace with the need for quality infrastructure development.
 
While the West Bali National Park (TNBB) recently increased by 200% the cost of admission to Menjangan Island in North Bali, the pier used to cross between Bali and the Island has fallen into serious disrepair.
 
In response, TNBB officials point out that the pier is not their responsibility, and neither owned or operated by Park authorities.
 
Meanwhile, local citizen are complaining to Park Authorities regarding the poor state of the pier used to welcome guests to Menjangan Island.
 
A local resident and guardian of Pura Menjangan – a Hindu temple located on the Island – Made Sedana expressed displeasure with TNBB’s indifference to the state of the pier originally built by the traditional village that has declined over time into an unsafe condition. Sedana said the village has no source of funds with which to undertake the needed repairs.
 
As reported by Metrobali.com, TNBB is refusing to make any contribution to efforts to repair the pier or other supporting infrastructure for Park visitors.
 
The Ministry of Forestry increased admission fees for Menjangan Island by 200% in late 2014 prompting a boycott of the park by boat operators, guides and travel agents.

You've Got a Ticket to Ride
Transportation Minister Want Ticket Sales for Ships to Go On-line

Indonesia’s Transport Minister, Ignasius Jonan, has announced that the system for selling passage on passenger ships will be revamped and replaced with an on-line system.

“Indeed there are a couple of ships operated by the private sector. In my opinion, the ticketing system is old fashioned. I saw in Banjarmasin (Kalimantan) a paper-based ticketing system with no price shown, like some sort of trickery was at work,” said the Minister in Jakarta on Monday, July 20, 2015, as quoted by Metrobali.com.

The Minister believes an on-line ticket system will assist passengers in obtaining tickets from having to make an unnecessary trips to the seaport before their trip’s actual departure date just to secure a ticket.

“Therefore, I ask for a system that forms a record. So, it someone wants to take a ship they can buy (a ticket) from an agent. Why should someone who want to take a ship from Surabaya to Banjarmasin have to go to the port beforehand just to buy a ticket? And, if he is unable to get a ticket then he must spend several says waiting at the port,” the Minister lamented

Floating an Idea
North Bali Adventure in Lovina Urged to Tow Floating Water Park to Shore Until Licenses and Permits are in Hand

A floating, inflatable water park standing some 100 meters off the beach at Banyualit Beach in Lovina, North Bali is the focus of protests from local residents.
 
The North Bali Adventure Water Park is owned by PT Kreasi Bali Utara and managed by a local resident Agus Yogi Yadnya on behalf of his Australian business partner Rob Corrie.
 
The amusement park holds a principle permits issued by the Regent of Buleleng but does not hold the numerous other operating permits required under provincial and regional law.
 
The water park that stands off the busy tourist and residential area of Kalibubuk is comprised of large inflatable structures anchored above the coral reef. It managers claims that the water park is the fifth of its kind after similar parks working in Portugal, Spain, China and Canada.
 
The provincial enforcement agency (Satpol PP Bali) confirmed that the North Bali Adventure Water Park does not hold the necessary licenses and permits.
 
The five large inflatable structures occupy an area estimated to cover 0.5 hectares.
 
A spokesman for Satpol PP Buleleng, Ketut Arnawa, said that the final authority to license the North Bali Adventure Water Park rests on the provincial level and needs to undertake an environmental impact analysis that addresses how to anchor the structures without damaging the coral reef. For this reason, he urged that the structures be towed to shore and stowed until such a time as the attraction’s operating permits are in order.
 
In response, Agus Yogi Yadnya as a director of PT Kreasi Bali Utara said the placement of the water park at Lovina was a trial operation to test the viability of such a park in a tropical environment. He told Radar Bali that he was in the process of securing all the required permits and licenses. “If we are asked to tow two the park away, we are prepared to do this. We only ask 21 days to do so as the process is a delicate one,” Yadnya added.

Despite weakening arrivals in Bali, Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism Arief Yahya remains defiantly optimistic that his target of 20 million foreign tourists visiting the Country by 2019 is achievable.
 
“Both I and the President have the ‘feeling’ that 20 million (foreign visitors) can be achieved even earlier. 2017 has been mentioned – 2 years ahead of schedule,” said Yahya in a press release issued by his Ministry.
 
The Minister of Tourism said he felt that the additional 30 countries added to Indonesia list nations eligible for visa-free visits has the potential of contributing around 1 million more tourists each year, As a result the he projects that the 30 new visa-free countries will generate 4.12 million tourist in 2015, 5.16 million tourists in 2016, 6.45 million tourists in 2017, 8.06 tourists in 2018 and 10.8 tourists in 2019.

With the recent addition of 30 countries to the list of visa-free nations, Indonesia now has 45 countries able to send their citizens to Indonesia without a visa.

Outgoing Regent Defends Building Boom for New Hotels But Insists The Building will Stop Once Badung Exceeds its Carrying Capacity

At a farewell gathering for the Regent of Badung, A.A. Gde Agung, who will finish his final term of office on August 5, 2015, the regent of the area that is home to the highest concentration of hotels in Bali said that a moratorium on new tourism accommodation was “still a possibility.”

Speaking to a group of tourism stakeholders, the man whose administration has authorized unprecedented building boom in new hotels and villas said any moratorium would have to be based on an academic study showing Bali was exceeding its carrying capacity for new accommodation. Adding, “We listen and absorb all the aspirations of the tourism sector.”

As reported by Bisnis Bali, Agung told the group that the regency had recently issued new building codes covering tourism accommodation in Badung. Those rules stipulate that no tourism accommodation can be built on an area of less than 100 are (1,00 square meters) with special exception of a minimum 50 are in Kuta and 75 are in North Kuta. Under the new rules accommodation providers’ rooms can be no smaller than 32 square meters.

Returning to the topic of a moratorium on new hotels, Agung said if a study showed that Badung has reached the limits of its carrying capacity a moratorium on new building remained a possibility.

At the same time, the outgoing Regent said that the issuance of the large number of hotel and accommodation permits during his two terms as Regent was done to encourage investment and grow the Regency’s economy.

The Regent pointed to the 7.13% growth rate for Badung’s economy achieved in 2013 and his success in reducing unemployment and poverty for the regency.


New HIV/AIDS Infections up 50% in Three Years
The Majority of New HIV/AIDS Cases in Bali Linked to Heterosexual Contact

Bali Post reports that new cases of HIV/AIDS in Bali continue to grow with between 180-200 new infections recorded in the month of May 2015.

The head of Bali’s Health Department, Dr. Ketut Suarjaya, revealed that in 2013, an average 120-150 new cases of HIV/AIDS were reported each month. In 2014, the average increased to 150-180 and is now, in 2015, averaging 150-180.  This represents a 50% increase in new cases of the disease in the space of just three years.

The government continues to try to educate the public on the dangers of HIV/AIDS, especially among drug users and the younger generation. Surjaya urges the public to avoid unprotected sex with high-risk groups and the dangers of sharing needles for users of intravenous narcotics.

Bali’s top official also urges people to take advantage of free anonymous  screening so that life-saving drug treatment can commence as soon as possible. He stressed that HIV screening for pregnant woman was very important to prevent children being born with HIV/AIDS.

Surjaya said that many people from other areas of Indonesia suffering from HIV/AIDS are migrating to Bali to take advantage of the Island’s superior testing and counseling programs.

Provincial Health Department data says that 78.7% of HIV/AIDS cases in Bali are the result of heterosexual contact, 7.6% from homosexual contact and 6.9% from intravenous drug use. The remainder of infections is from indeterminate causes.


Pay at the Door
Bali Collects US$36.9 million in Visa Fees During First Four Months of 2015

Bank Indonesia reports that revenues generated from visa-on-arrivals at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport for the months of January – April 2015 totaled US$36.9 million.

The same five months in 2014 produced only US$11 million in visa revenues.

The large increase in visa revenues is due, in part, to an increase in the visa-on-arrival fee from US$25 to $35 that took place in July 2014.

During the first four months of 2015, only 1,056,649  were charged visa frees at the airport  from a total of 1,259,650  foreign visitors who came to Bali, including those who are exempt from any visa fee.

Recent changes in immigration policy extending a visa-free facility to 45 countries commencing in July are certain to see visa revenues decline in the future.


Baliís Seeking a New Chief of Police

Tourists Complain About Limited Public Toilet Facilities at Kintamani Volcano. Toilets Installed by Government at Georpark Complex Locked and Without Water

Visitors to the popular tourist destination of Penelokan, located on the caldera of the Kintamani volcano,  are inconvenienced by the lack of adequate public toilets. Although the government included allocations for four public lavatories within the Art Market at the Geopark Complex, those toilets remain boarded shut and lacking in running water.

Bali Post reports that because of this lack of public toilets,  tourists visiting the Penelokan site are forced to make do with a single “rented” toilet located near the police station. Tourist are often seen waiting in line to use the "rented" toilets where they are required to each pay Rp. 2,000 (US$0.15)

Ni Komang Sudiani, a local trader at Kintamani, confirmed that the four public toilets at the Kintamani Geopark have been sealed and unavailable to the public from the initial opening of the Geopark.

The lack of toilet facilities and the condition of the limited facilities available for their use has been the source of frequent complaints from both domestic and foreign tourists.


Happy Birthday to You, You Live in a Zoo!
Celebrating National Childrenís Day with Bali Safari and Marine Park

This year’s celebration of National Children’s Day (Hari Anak Nasional) at the Bali Safari and Marine Park took on a special quality as it was observed in tandem with the birthday of Niluh - a lovely female orangutan who is a much-loved member of the Park’s extended family. As Niluh’s birthday party was being organized at the Safari Park, it seemed only fitting to invite 55 friends of the “birthday girl” – children from a nearby orphanage.

While sharing happy birthday moments with Niluh, her young guests were also treated to an animal show featuring elephants and other animals; a Safari Journey that passed through separate enclosures for animals native to Indonesia, India and Africa; and a spell-binding visit to the Park’s spectacular Bali Agung Performance.

The joyous party held on Niluh’s behalf and the participation of the group of orphans was made possible via a generous donation sent to the Park by students for the Mount Hawthorn Primary School in Perth, Western Australia. Via their support, the children from Australia were able to share the concern and affection for the world’s endangered animal species with other children living in the Bali.

“This program is very positive, because today’s children will inherit the world from their parents who serve as the current stewards of the planet. It is so important to educate children at the earliest opportunity to become environmentally aware. We hope that by inviting the kids to the Park we can share our deep concern for the world’s wildlife, But, on a most basic level, everyone at the Park enjoys having the opportunity to create a memorable fun-filled birthday day for Niluh and her group of friends from a local orphanage,” said William Santoso, general manager of the Bali Safari and Marine Park.

National Children’s Day is celebrated on varying dates in countries around the globe with Indonesia dedicating every July 23 as the day set-aside each year for kids. National Children’s Day serves to remind everyone of the importance of safeguarding children’s rights to be provided with supportive concern and fundamental security.

Police Investigating Claim of Police Seeking ĎSpecial Paymentí from Bank Central Asia Official in Connection with Recent Fire in Kuta

Tribunnews.com reports that while forensic experts from the Denpasar police continue to investigate a fire that destroyed most the Bank Central Asia Office in Kuta, Bali on Saturday, July 28, 2015. An officer of the Bank has reported receiving an SMS message demanding money, purportedly from the police, to ensure a smooth investigation of the fire.

At this point, police investigators suspect the fire was caused by a short-circuit.

The mysterious SMS message, allegedly from the police, was received on the Monday following the fire.

Dedy Januarta of the Kuta police precinct confirms the report of the improper SMS, but would not divulge the source of the errant message or the actual content of the message.

“We are still examining the case (the SMS message). Just be calm. It is not correct if a policeman sends such a SMS and requests money to facilitate an investigation, Please await for results from the forensic laboratory and the other investigations,” said Januarta

Meanwhile, Lay, a representative of BCA Kuta did not want to divulge details on the SMS he received demanding money.

Lay said he would soon hold a press conference regarding the fire at the BCA branch.
