'The Bigger, the Better': Govt to Improve Bali for G20 Summit
jpnn.com, BALI - Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) Minister Basuki Hadimuljono has said that his ministry, together with the Environment and Forestry Ministry (KLHK), has planned to transform Bali into a more environmentally friendly space through infrastructure improvements and reforestation.
This is to prepare the Island of the Gods for the G20 Summit next year.
As a preparation, both ministries have conducted a field survey to prepare for the G-20 Summit Mangrove Conservation showcase.
This activity was also attended by Bali Governor Wayan Koster and Peat and Mangrove Restoration Agency (BRGM) head Hartono Prawiraatmadja.
Basuki said that the PUPR Ministry would improve the quality of the infrastructure and facilities of the Mangrove Research Center in the Benoa area.
Mangrove development is a form of Indonesia's commitment and contribution in responding to various environmental issues and climate change.
"The PUPR Ministry and the KLHK will prepare the location with the concept of 'the bigger the better'. We want to show the world that Indonesia has been developing and will continue to develop mangrove potential," said Basuki in a statement received on Sunday (21/11).
The PUPR Ministry will also improve roads starting from the Ngurah Rai airport to venues in Nusa Dua, including the Bali-Mandara toll road and main roads leading to the G20 Summit venue.
