Tabanan Authorities Ready to Restrict Tourism Development

The authorities in the west Bali regency were very selective when granting permits for new tourism-related construction projects.

The move was needed to protect the agricultural land in what is Bali’s main rice growing region. Any hotel development in the regency needed to apply environment principles to gain licensing, including a need to keep two-thirds of the development plot as rice land or forest. Tax breaks and subsidies for farmers have been put in place, and the authorities have bought up much of the rice harvest to ensure prices are maintained.
