Infrastructure

Indonesia Infrastructure

An infrastructure boom is under way in Indonesia, after the administration of President Joko Widodo committed to developing $414.6bn of new public works projects between 2015 and 2019, including large-scale transportation, utilities and ICT projects, as well as new schools, hospitals, and water supply and treatment plants. In recent years the government has mobilised a coordinated effort to deliver planned projects, with dozens of state actors collaborating to develop new infrastructure policy, including an organised framework for public-private partnerships, new finance models and risk management reforms. Public expenditure on infrastructure is expected to hit a historic high in 2017.
