In Preparation of the G20 Summit: Improving Bali’s Infrastructure

The Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) is currently revamping regional infrastructure in welcoming the 2022 Group of Twenty (G20) Summit in Bali Province. PUPR Minister Basuki Hadimuljono said Indonesia as the host of the G20 Summit will take a big theme, namely “recover together, recover stronger”. With Bali being the host location for the G20 Summit, the area is planned to be built more environmentally friendly through activities to improve regional infrastructure supported by massive reforestation.

Through the G20 Summit, one of the things that wants to be shown to the world is that Indonesia can lead the mission to save the earth through the development and rescue of mangroves. For this reason, the Ministry of PUPR and the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (LHK) have prepared the location with the concept of “the bigger the better”. In addition, the PUPR Ministry prepares the environment around the road from the airport to the venue. Basuki also asked for reforestation on the Bali Mandara Toll Road section. This is so it shows that Bali really takes good care of the environment.

All work for improving the area’s infrastructure will be poured into the design, which is planned to be completed by the end of November 2021. The Director General of Highways of the Ministry of PUPR Hedy Rahadian said he is ready to repair roads starting from I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport-Bali International Convention Center-the location of mangrove planting, to the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park (GWK). Meanwhile, the Directorate General of Human Settlements has the task of preparing technical planning documents and implementing activities for the Management of the Bali Tahura Mangrove Forest Conservation Area with an early auction plan at the end of December 2021.

The scope of activities for structuring the Tahura Mangrove area includes improving the quality of the raised deck for pedestrian paths which will later be used as a path for the heads of G20 member countries, structuring parking areas and increasing accessibility to the location. Completion of activities is targeted for June 2022 and continued with the planting of pilot mangroves which will be completed in September 2022, so that in October 2022 the location will be ready to become a Mangrove Show Case to support the implementation of the G20.
