The government of Central Lombok hoped that investors who have cooperated with the management of Bali Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC) to immediately realize the development of integrated tourism area Mandalika Resort.
“We hope that the investors soon realize its physical action. Don’t keep promising to do it soon but until now it’s not realized yet,” said Central Lombok Regent F.T. Suhaili ketika when contacted from Mataram on Sunday.
The problem of land acquisition, which is unfinished yet on certain point, is believed will be solved so that it doesn’t distract any plan of developing the integrated tourism area.
The area of Mandalika given in the form of Rights to use (HPL) to BTDC, which is 1,175 hectares width, will be developed as one of the national tourism icons, even the world icon in the future.
From the 1,175 hectares of land, the area of 1,035 hectares is guaranteed having no issue on land ownership aspect.
However, in the area of Mandalika located at Kuta Village, Pujut District, Central Lombok Regency, there is personal land in contact to the Mandalika that will be managed by BTDC and the investors.
The personal land located massively in some locations, which is 135 hetares width. According to BTDC, from 1,175 hectares, 400 hectares will be used firstly and it’s located in the centre of Mandalika resort.
