Bali to Turn Coastal Town Into Health Hub to Recoup $6 Billion

  • Companies to invest about 10.2 trillion rupiah to develop area
  • Indonesia seeks to recoup $6 billion in outbound health travel

Bali will seek to attract world-class hospitals to the tropical island, adding medical treatment to its roster of offerings that already include white sand beaches and yoga retreats.

Indonesia designated a 41-hectare area in Sanur -- a quiet coastal town on the eastern coast -- as a special economic zone for health tourism, according to a Nov. 1 regulation. That means companies setting up in the area could get fiscal and non-fiscal incentives.
