Work From Lombok is The New Work From Bali, Government Hopes

With the government keen to get the Work From Bali initiative rolling, we are already hearing about possibilities that the program may later be replicated in other popular tourist areas in Indonesia ⁠— including Lombok and Sumbawa in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB). ⁠— as part of an effort to revive the country’s tourism industry.

The possibility is a “breath of fresh air” for NTB officials amid the COVID-19 pandemic, who plan on following Bali’s lead in prepping the region to better comply with health protocols and by vaccinating tourism workers. 

“It doesn’t rule out the possibility that other tourist regions will see the same policy implemented, such as Work From Lombok or Work From Labuan Bajo,” Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno said.

Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno said at a press briefing this week that the plan to promote remote work from Indonesia’s popular tourist destinations is still currently focused on Bali. As the initiative may require participation of civil servants from seven ministries under the Coordinating Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Investment, Sandiaga said that details are still being ironed out among those involved. 

For the time being, officials are targeting the involvement of about a quarter of civil servants working in those ministries, which would essentially guarantee higher occupancy rates for hotels in the Nusa Dua complex at least, with whom the government has already signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the Work From Bali program.
