Donald Trump, one of the United States presidency candidates, is reportedly planning to build a hotel in Tanah Lot, Tabanan, Bali. Wonder how valid this is? Bali Governor, Made Mangku Pastika claimed that he has not been informed about the further plan. “I have not heard about the news. Better leave it to central government in Jakarta.” he said last Tuesday (8/9).
According to the Governor's statement, it is too early to be convinced that Bali has been chosen by the billionaire as his investment location.
Similar thing was as well stated by Ida Bagus Made Parwata of Bali Province Investment and Licensing Department. He told that there has not been yet related license received by them. The licensing would be processed through Domestic Investment (PMDN) or Capital Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) before we receive it. “There has been no complete information whatsoever, we are still waiting from the central government. We would have been informed if the license had been through.” he said to clarify.
Though, the billionaire and CEO MNC Group, Hary Tanoesoedibjo are reportedly to have signed documents regarding hotel development in Bali on August 14 2015. This would be make Indonesia, particularly Bali, as the first country chosen to have Trump Hotel Collection built in Asia.
Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisition of The Trump Organisation, Donald Trump Jr., stated that Bali is chosen because it is one of favourite destinations in the world. It is an honour if they could “spread their wings” in Asia.
