For an archipelago spread over more than 17,500 islands and spanning 5,000 km from west to east, the need for Indonesia to have an efficient transport network that seamlessly integrates sea, land and air transport systems is clear. The public sector manages 90% of total transport infrastructure, while private sector involvement is concentrated on a few tolled highway projects and private rail lines. By 2014 Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is expected to be able to handle 64m passengers annually; however, passenger demand is expected to soar to 87m by 2025. Indonesia has much to improve in the transport sector, which already comprises 40% of infrastructure investment. Deeper focus on development of the country’s transport networks is necessary for improving travel connectivity and reducing the cost of doing business throughout the archipelago.
