Several Chinese state-owned companies have shown interest in investing in the plan to develop the new airport at Kubutambahan Village, Buleleng.

“We have heard of the plan to build the new airport in Bali and several companies have reached out to us to express their interest in investing,” said Hu Yinguan, the Consulate General for the Republic of China, as quoted by ANTARA, adding that the airport will further ease the travel of Chinese tourists to Bali.

According to CNN Indonesia, the Director of PT Pembangunan Bali Mandiri (Pembari), Rolly Irwananda, said that his company is open to all investors who want to take part in developing the new airport in North of Bali. “The most important things are they adhere to the regulations and contribute to the local people,” Irwananda said.

But for the time being, they are still waiting for confirmation from the Ministry of Transportation regarding the location of the airport. “We hope that we can get the confirmation soon so we can fulfill other obligations,” he added.

Previously, on Saturday (19/08), in time for the Saraswati Celebration, several public figures and investors from Pembari conducted a ceremonial prayer at the temple at Kubutambahan Village to ask for blessings. “We are now praying so that everything goes smoothly and to support whomever is appointed by the government to build the airport,” said Jro Pasek Ketut Warkadia, the village chief.

(Ed. Strange, in a previous story the breaking ground ceremony was supposed to be celebrated around the end of August, 2017. Link Here)

      François Richli its already a pattern, China is running very fast to solve their problem, to many population in their country. So they create a lot of project, event outside the country, to absorb the workers and and reduce unemployment, here in Sri Lanka, maybe like almost 90% of the workers of their project is from China also. Other country should look this positively and try to do the same, I dont blame China for this. Its just, I hope that Indonesia can handle the airport project by themself, especially in Bali

      The Sri Lankans have been scamming money off the International Community for decades and getting away with it … they thought they’d try their luck with the Chinese and got bitten on the bum …. Plain greed, not stupidity

      Janice … Yup – I’d read that somewhere … But somehow there’s something more devious about encouraging a poor country to take China’s ‘development & infrastructure Aid’, and then foreclosing on that loan when that country can not pay it back

      Oh this is read with a heavy heart. All I know is that the Chinese went into Africa, and something like 80/90% of the labor came from Chins, and the local work force had no jobs, when it was originally intended versa…so very devious, with hidden agendas and the like… and I just know this will happen here the same, and lose a hell of a lot of our Bali charm, and not work for the locals, you all know what I mean…I hope and pray they not follow like the rest of the idiots did…Australia is a laughing stock, selling up most everything that means anything for the local people…oh so sad, money, greed and no common sense.

    I pray this does not go ahead! This is in our village and our village will disappear if this happens. Bali is slowly dying, and sadly so is the culture! We need to try and keep it alive! I want to for my kids and families sake.

    I bet they have an interest to take all jobs to China for China. 10 million Indonesian Jobs when to China when they exactly the free trade agreement. Lost was 10 mill garment, fabric and other related job.
