Brisbane (ANTARA News) - Some Australian investors are interested in doing business in Indonesia`s popular island resort of Bali where they can build an international hospital, a retirement village for Australian pensioners, and a luxurious cruiser pier, an Indonesian diplomat has said.

Some Australian investors hoped that they needed some 25 hectares of land on which to realize their project, Minister Counsellor at the Indonesian Consulate General Jahar Gustom said here Sunday.

According to Gultom, the investors of the retirement village were still negotiating their plan with the Karangasem district administration.

"Many Australian investors are waiting for an opportunity to do business in Bali, but they had problems in obtaining land," he said.

The Australian entrepreneurs` hope grew after the Indonesian Consulate General held an annual Indonesian festival starting in 2005, he said. Bilateral trade between Indonesia and the Australian
State of Victoria also increased following the annual Indonesian trade exhibitions.

The bilateral trade value was recorded at 1.47 billion Australian dollars in 2006, an increase from 1.22 billion Australian dollars in 2005.

The Indonesian Consulate General in Melbourne is scheduled to hold a similar festival on November 9-11, focusing on Sulawesi potentials. The exhibitions which were held in 2005 and 2006 focused on Bali and Sumatra potentials respectively.

Provinces outside Sulawesi like Yogyakarta, Bali, West Sumatra, North Sumatra, West Java, DKI Jakarta, Central Kalimantan, Gorontalo, West Sulawesi, North Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi, South Sulawesi, and Central Sulawesi will also participated in the trade festival.

Bank Indonesia, state banks like BRI and BNI as well as flag-carrier Garuda Indonesia will support the exhibition. (*)

i was more thinking about you, dill. i've got brochures for you and everything. the development will have nursing staff on call at a press of a button, so you won't need to worry about your colostomy bag.

these "retirement developments" are attempting to turn bali into australia's costa rica. pretty soon we'll be calling bali North Darwin.

The last time I encountered a colostomy bag was when I gave you that "Boil in a Bag Curry" that I brought from Thailand

Are these investors going to get the government to allow non-Indonesian doctors to practice medicine? The problems here are not with the equipment available but with the quality of the medical staff ... I would imagine a few years of old people kicking the bucket for "treatable conditions" would see the place empty sooner than you can say "fair f*ckin dingkum"

i've actually done some fairly detailed research into the question of foreign medical workers in indonesia. basically, it is theoretically possible, however the conditions are so ridiculously stringent that very few ever make it.

why? very simple. the local medical fraternity hates foreign doctors, as they so easily show them up for the dangerous incompetents they really are.
