Indonesia weighs up alcohol ban, which could impact tourism in Bali

MML

Indonesia is considering banning alcohol.

In a move that’s sure to draw the ire of Bali holiday-goers, a new law has been proposed in which the production, distribution and consumption of alcohol would be made illegal.

A bill to ban the sale, distribution and consumption of drinks containing more than one per cent of alcohol has been introduced in parliament.

The Indonesian tourism industry says such a move would kill tourism in Bali.

The bill is currently being deliberated by Indonesia’s House Of Representatives.

Indonesia Institute President Ross Taylor says he expects Balinese authorities to campaign hard against it.
