Officials from the Jembrana regional government have planned to build an all-in-one circuit to attract more tourism on the western side of Bali.
An official of Pengambengan Village Jembrana, Kamaruzzaman confirmed that the regional government will begin construction of an all-in-one circuit in Pengambenan village by 2022, as one of the efforts to increase the economic activity in Jembrana. “Although the program was initiated by the regional government, I will ensure that Pengambengan village will provide a lot of support for this project,” Kamaruzzaman said.
However, he also admitted that this project has an issue; most parts of the construction site are currently being occupied by local goat farmers, so village officials plan to approach all the goat farmers before finally relocating their herd to a more appropriate place as this area is owned by the regional government. “We will approach friendly and ask them to find another place for their animals to prevent any potential conflict with the villagers,” Kamaruzzaman added.
The project was funded by the Tourism and Creative Economy Minister and it is expected to attract more international and domestic visitors to visit the western parts of the island. They plan on doing this by holding several weekly events such as horse races, traditional buffalo races, and traditional music festivals. Other than that, this facility will also provide an open green space for the local residents in the area.
