API Pacific’s Managing Director Richard Flax moved to Indonesia in 1975, to escape the comforts of the West, he chose the remote island paradise of Bali. During the ensuing years, the foundations for API Pacific were laid, and the fledgling company became involved in several developing areas of commercial activity in Indonesia.
Over the years it became apparent that the medical systems that suited most of the world were not similarly effective for the Asian continent. In response to this growing need Richard and his colleagues researched, designed, and proposed geographically & culturally appropriate alternatives, and API Pacific was founded in 1988. The company was fully embraced, becoming the foundation of a new approach to the myriad medical response issues affecting the locals and ex-pats of the region. By developing a unique medical system with exceedingly positive results for medical emergencies, API Pacific effectively met the necessity through establishing an autonomous system focused on, but with products not exclusive to, Bali, Indonesia & Asia.
Shortly after a new regional office in Singapore was opened by our colleagues Safe Meridian, strengthening this unique approach and business relationship and Astro Pertama Indonesia formed the API group; an entirely foreign-owned Indonesian subsidiary company operating under the foreign investment laws of Indonesia.
We believe social responsibility is a matter of essential priority, and API Pacific has developed a series of responsible, independent foundations that contribute to resolving social issues that affect those in the greatest need in Indonesia. Today, we proudly present a new range of Health Insurance products backed by the world’s largest insurers and underwritten by one of Indonesia’s dominant insurers. Products developed to respond to the challenges with top-grade insurance coverage with affordable and highly effective products.
Initiated during the first years of the newly licensed Foreign Investment System (PMA) these activities matured in the field of Development of Resorts, The Health Insurance Industry, The Marine Tourism Industry, and Consultations to intending foreign investors in Indonesia. Several of the projects initiated during the 80s developed into mainstays of the industries in Bali. Not least of which are several successful marine and tourism Foreign Investment companies and developments in the field of medical care and health Insurance. The success of one of Indonesia’s foremost remote luxury resorts gives credence to the modus operandi as it has become a leading example of environmentally responsible tourism. Other PMA companies initiated during these early times remain exemplars in the marine tourism industry in Bali.
