To ensure a broad-based growth, and further catapult Indonesia’s growth potential, massive investments in infrastructure is needed. For the next 5 years, the country is aiming to build around 20,000 km of roads, 15,000 MW of power plants, as well as other infrastructure including ports, oil refineries, and other supporting infrastructure. The cost of this endeavor is estimated to be around US$ 160 billion, around US$60 billion some of which will be publicly funded.
The government is currently formulating ways to improve the mechanism by which these projects will be prepared, implemented, and monitored. Public-Private Partnership (“PPP”) has long been acknowledged as the funding scheme to bridge the public-private chasm.
In a recent breakthrough, BKPM has been mandated to be the main implementer for five showcase infrastructure projects. Working hand-in-hand with BAPPENAS, Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Public Works and a few other relevant ministries, BKPM will lead the execution the following five projects shown here.
