There are 30 projects that have been selected as priority infrastructure projects in Indonesia for the period 2016-2019. In total, all these projects together will require some IDR 5,519 trillion (approx. US $415 billion) worth of investment. However, the Indonesian government (including state-owned enterprises and regional governments) can only come up with IDR 1,400 trillion, or 26 percent of the required funds. The remainder therefore needs to be covered by the private sector. As such, the key for success is fruitful cooperation between the private and public sector (for example through public-private partnerships).
Adequate quality and quantity of infrastructure is a requirement to become an advanced nation. Currently Indonesia’s infrastructure lags behind hence curtailing connectivity and causing high logistics costs.
