Nusa Penida, Residents of Nusa Penida islet in Klungkung regency have
asked Governor Made Mangku Pastika to provide them with more roads. During

implementation of any infrastructure project required an integrated
program between the provincial and regional administrations.

Penida and other islets in Klungkung are still underdeveloped with
limited roads, healthcare and education institutions and job
Despite the people’s poor living conditions, Nusa Penida is rich in tourism potential.
