KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. Communications and Information Minister Rudiantara will talk to Tourism Minister Aief Yahya about the request to block global hospitality marketplace Airbnb from the Indonesian Hotels and Restaurants Association (PHRI), an official has said.

"The request will be discussed by Communications and Information Minister Rudiantara and Tourism Minister Arief Yahya," Communications and Information Ministry’s information applications director general Samuel Abrijani said in Jakarta on Thursday night as reported by tempo.co.

Samuel commented on the request from PHRI chairman Hariyadi Sukamdani because the platform had hampered conventional hospitality businesses, indicated by the decline in the country’s hotel occupancy rate.

Hariyadi said he had no problem with the business model of Airbnb as long as it was properly regulated, because the unregulated business created unfair business competition.

Samuel said the decision would be made by Tourism Minister Arief Yahya. "We are still waiting for the minister’s decision," he added.

He said the government would consider all aspects related to the request because Airbnb had created opportunities for households to earn rental fees from unoccupied spaces in their houses, but the the government also needed to maintain a good business climate.
